Tadhg - The Live Exhibition

Offline

Music is often not given the same respect as conventional art mediums such as painting or sculpture. It’s part of our everyday lives. Whether you’re shopping for groceries, sitting in a hair salon, or enjoying a night out, there’s always music in the background.

Because of this constant consumption, the intricate flavours of well-composed music are often left unappreciated.

Tadhg wants to change this. For this year’s Culture Night Tadhg has created art pieces inspired by his music, and will display this work during a live musical performance in the Link Gallery. Shifting seamlessly from big-band rock to heartfelt piano ballads, Tadhg’s stage presence coupled with his emotional songwriting creates a captivating performance that is sure to entertain and excite.

Tender Ears Workshop

Offline

Sounds surround us in our everyday lives: some come from our bodies, others from our surroundings or from sources that we never see. The Tender Ears workshop focuses on sound and listening, we will make playful sounds, draw in response to what we can hear and visit the exhibitions using our ears as well as our eyes. We will remember sounds we heard before and imagine new sounds that we haven’t yet heard.

The workshops are open to everyone.
No prior musical background or experience is required and workshop is suitable for all ages.
Children should be accompanied by adults.

These workshops will be delivered by Clare Breen, Curator of Learning at VISUAL, with family pods of up to 6 people.
This project was developed by Raluca Croitoru.
