Ranelagh Arts Festival – Cultural Natures

Ranelagh Arts

For the philosopher Bolivar Echeverría, the Cultural has to do with a rupture in human
existence, an interruption of the daily routine – of the ordinary – which is transformed into
extraordinary behaviour. This definition can also be shared with art, in which creators
“play”, imagining other possible scenarios through their visual representations. The work
of art, like the cultural, allows to generate dialogues with the spectators so that in turn,
the person reflects and questions his or her own daily practices.

In Cultural natures, the topic chosen for this edition by Ranelagh Arts, more than 40 artists
from different disciplines have been selected for their exploration of such diverse subjects
that are at the same time related to human existence: climate, culture, connections and
community. In this exhibition there are visual representations that range from imagining
what would happen in the future if the sea rises even higher, questioning current
connections such as domestic abuse, communities that are emerging in Dublin from
migration, among other subjects that concern the cultural dimension and human nature.
Exhibitors include Paula O’ Riordan, Lena Willryd, Celina Buckley, Lorraine Cleary, Irene
O Neill, Geraldine Murphy, Annette Smyth, Tamara Gangnus, Daniel Lipstein, Emer
Brady, Muntsa Molina, Austin Reddy, Pat Byrne, Shreya Shah, Alex Gur, Ann Kavanagh,

The Cultural Natures Exhibition will take place as part of the Ranelagh Arts Festival and
opens 17 th September until 14 th October. It will be across two locations, at the Ranelagh
Arts Centre, No. 6 Ranelagh, and at Frame Experts, 18A Ranelagh, both just a few steps
from the Ranelagh Luas stop. The general public is invited to not only reflect on, but to
actively engage with issues that are relevant and necessary to transform culture in
turbulent times.

This event has been changed since the publication of the Culture Night Dublin 2022 brochure and this listing reflects the most up to date information.
