Cork: Mooney’s San Borondon

Cork: Mooney’s San Borondon

The Triskel Arts Centre hosts Kevin Mooney’s new exhibition ‘Fragments of San Borondon’. Mooney explores myth, migration and an alternative art history, creating work that can be read as reimagining a cultural history of loss and renewal. Mooney’s artistic practice is influenced by his own experience of migration and identity, and draws on Irish and African folklore traditions.
Kevin Mooney: 5 September – 31 October

Cork Circadian Rhythms

Cork Circadian Rhythms

‘Circadian Rhythms’ at The Glucksman Gallery shows the work of Irish and international artists who explore the invisible force of circadian rhythms through reflections on time, the cadence of working life, sleeping patterns, as well as through the impact of modern technologies that disrupt the natural world. All life on earth – humans, other animals, plants and even bacteria – carry out biological processes to a twenty-four-hour pattern of activity that mirrors the length of the earth day. Artists include David Beattie, Isolde Donohoe, Tehching Hsieh, Jitish Kallat, Barbara Knezevic, Michael John Whelan and more. Image: Jitish Kallat
The Glucksman Gallery: 1 August – 3 November

Cork: Seen not heard

Cork: Seen not heard

‘Seen, Not Heard’ at the Crawford Art Gallery examines the representations of children by Irish artists and in Irish art collections ranging from the 18th century to the present. The exhibition examines what these visual representations tell us about how the role of the child has evolved within Ireland and the wider society, the challenging perspectives of the artist and viewer, and encourages the audience to reflect on their own perceptions of childhood. To encourage these interactive reflections, the upper gallery will be transformed into an experimental, project-based playroom for the duration of the exhibition.
Seen, Not Heard: 28 June – 28 October
