Cork: A sense of home

‘Home: Being and belonging in contemporary Ireland’ marks the concluding instalment of a trilogy of exhibitions presented at The Glucksman to mark the decade of centenaries through contemporary Irish art. ‘2116: Forecast of the next century’ considered visions of the future ahead and ‘The Parted Veil: Commemoration in Photographic Practices’ reflected on how we remember the past, but this final show brings viewers back to the present to explore concepts of being and belonging in contemporary Ireland.

Cork: Accidental Triggers

Cork: Accidental Triggers

Miguel Amado’s curatorial programme at the Triskel Arts Centre continues in April with ‘Accidental Triggers’, an exhibition by Ofri Cnaani. Working in performance, installation and print, Cnaani’s performances offer new perspectives on the concept of ‘mediation’ through the tension between the age-old occult and the omniscient digital world. This exhibition explores questions surrounding digital colonialism in the context of e-production and e-waste, data surveillance and protection, corporate power, and neo-liberalism.

St Peter’s arts and heritage visitor centre is hosting an exhibition marking the historic events of 1920. A tumultuous year in the life of the city, the exhibition, ‘Cork 1920 – The Burning of a City’, brings this centenary to the fore. It uncovers thought-provoking stories from the period using archival material, historic photographs and compelling witness statements. The exhibition highlights the events that led to the destruction of swathes of the city by fire in December 1920, tracing its impact on the city’s citizens in the aftermath. It will be accompanied by a series of gatherings, talks and workshops.
