What's on in Northern Ireland

Belfast: Golden Gerrard

Belfast: Golden Gerrard

The Golden Thread Gallery mounts a major solo exhibition of internationally acclaimed artist Joy Gerrard. Drawing on over a decade of image-making and research on themes of protest and urban space, Gerrard archives and painstakingly remakes media-born crowd images. The artist uses this solo exhibition as an experimental space to create new work at this critical, uncertain time in Belfast’s already fragmented, troubling yet powerfully hopeful history.

Belfast: A False Dawn

Belfast: A False Dawn

At the Ulster Museum, Ursula Burke presents ‘A False Dawn’, a culmination of her work in porcelain sculpture, embroidery and drawing. Burke often takes a post-conflict Northern Irish context as a critical point of departure to approach international concerns. This exhibition showcases artworks that act as a bridge to connect the classical ‘ideal’ with the ‘reality’ of today’s world. The museum also hosts Cornelia Parker’s ‘Left, Right and Centre’ exhibition as well as the BP Portrait Award 2019, including the winning work by Charlie Schaffer.

Belfast and Dublin: Gormley’s Spring Show

Belfast and Dublin: Gormley’s Spring Show

Gormley’s Fine Art hosts its annual Spring Group Show at its Belfast and Dublin premises. The show features works spanning a range of practices, with artists including Nigel Cox, April Young, Stephen Forbes and David French Le-Roy. Cox’s minimalist landscapes stem from his participation in an expedition circumnavigating the globe via both poles, while Young’s sculpture is concerned with the expression of life through figurative study. Forbes is represented by recent figurative paintings of everyday life, and French Le-Roy through hyper-realistic still-life work inspired by the Dutch masters.
