Tønight: Poetry and Art
On Culture Night, Tøn welcomes the public to join them and enjoy an eclectic mix of visual art and live poetry readings in the heart of Temple Bar from Helen Kirk from Boston, Massachusetts, Mark Redden from Dublin, Francesc Ruiz Abad from Catalonia, and Tom Campbell from Scotland. The artists will present a collection of paintings, drawings, sculptures, and performance pieces which demonstrate contemporary idiosyncratic narratives aimed to re-think commonly held perspectives. By bringing these artists together, audience members are encouraged to fulfil their own modes of self-expression.
Temple Bar was established as an epicentre of Irish culture, and we as a collective aim to be faithful to this ideal by offering truly inspiring art that is aimed at local and international audiences. From the bards of old to contemporary verse, Tøn adheres to the ancient tradition of self-expression as a form of connection and social criticism.
