Yesterday’s Sunday Times Ireland included 2 texts of mine about exhibitions in Dublin, both important (for different reasons) and both worth visiting. To read online (with paywall):
FUTURES at RHA Gallery
Holdfast at Draíocht in Blanchardstown
I wrote about the National Gallery of Ireland’s first ever photographic exhibition in today’s Sunday Times Ireland’s culture supplement.
My text is focused on Jarman’s paintings but talks about the sense of walking through the exhibition that covers the artist’s art practice and activism.
Some of the work I wrote about:
I wrote a short text for today’s Sunday Times Ireland’s Culture supplement about Franko B’s Unloved at Rua Red Gallery.
I wrote a short text for today’s Sunday Times Ireland’s Culture supplement about Frankie Quinn’s Temporary/Permanent at the Ulster Museum, Belfast.
I’m delighted to have 3 pieces (one of them with Landing Collective) showing in an audio/video project “Then What If?”.
The project is available to engage with online on nmnmne.org/thenwhatif.php
It will also be showing at Five Points Launchpad: 5 Water street, Torrington, CT

I wrote a short review for the Sunday Times Ireland’s Culture section about Ciara Roche’s exhibition at The Lab.
Very happy to join this new platform.
I wrote about the 3rd edition of PhotoIreland’s ‘New Irish Works 2019’, with a review of all ten projects. The text was published in the Visual Artists’ News Sheet | September – October 2019, PDF can be found here.
For the online text:
I am delighted to announce that I have been selected to join Basic Space in Dublin as a co-director. Basic Space is an independent art organisation with a programme of residencies, exhibitions and educational events in collaboration with practitioners and art institutions throughout Ireland.
I will be working with Róisín Bohan, Siobhán Mooney, and Julia Moustacchi, all brilliant figures in the Dublin art field.
Initially I am going to focus on working with the outreach and residencies team, and am very excited at this opportunity. Watch this space for future adventures!
For the first time since I moved to Ireland I saw an exhibition by an Israeli artist in Dublin. The work is political and critical and really stuck with me since the first time I saw it. I wrote about how the exhibition impacted me. As an Israeli person this point of view may not be exactly what others visiting the exhibition experienced but it felt important understanding the type of response such poignant work brings out of an engaged audience.
