Description

Future Histories

Artists: Michelle Browne, Fergus Byrne, Brian Connolly, Pauline Cummins, Francis Fay, Debbie Guinnane, Sandra Johnston, Dr. Laura McAtackney, Danny McCarthy, Ciara McKeon, Alastair McLennan, Níamh Murphy, Katherine Nolan, Sinéad O’Donnell, Méabh Redmond, Dominic Thorpe and Helena Walsh.

Future Histories will be a one-day, 12-hour, live performance art and digital media event at Kilmainham Gaol. Sixteen Irish artists and an historical archeologist will respond to the site and its iconic, historical associations with the 1916 Easter Rising. Exploring themes of nationality, freedom and gender through time-based performances, the invited artists will engage with the centenary commemoration by creating contemporary perspectives on our shared past, conflicts, crises and passions in relation to the Rising and its greatest monument, Kilmainham Gaol.

Future Histories is curated by Níamh Murphy and Áine Phillips (Performance Art Live Foundation)
