Solstice Arts Centre is delighted to present New Era, an exhibition featuring four Irish artists Rachel Doolin, Siobhán McDonald, Martina O’Brien and Méadhbh O’Connor whose practices explore different aspects of climate change in the natural world.
New Era features new and recent works and are being exhibited for the first time at Solstice Arts Centre. The exhibition includes painting, sculpture, photography, drawings, prose poetry, film and video works and new spoken word works online. The artists are all involved in explorations of climate related issues including biodiversity, ecology, marine geology, solar activity, climate modelling, governance of natural disasters, seed sovereignty and the Anthropocene (recent consequences of our treatment of nature and the environment).

A NEW PLAY WRITTEN & PERFORMED BY SOLSTICE ASSOCIATED ARTIST 2020 FIONN FOLEY
To challenge the bureaucracy of Irish political life and to save the local school of music from being converted into apartments for racehorses, Brendan Galileo is determined to join the ranks of the European Parliament. Alas, in the City of Tribes he is a man without a spear, his previous electoral efforts little more than a novelty act. In a last-ditch attempt to dramatically improve his public profile, he must represent his country in the most vicious diplomatic catfight in the continent, the Eurovision Song Contest.
