BOOKED OUT Bones in the Attic Summer School
Friday 26 August – Sunday 29 August 2022, 10am-2pm daily
With artist Alice Maher, writer and podcaster Sophie White, exhibition curator Victoria Evans, artist Helena Gouveia Monteiro and more.
This 3-day Summer School invites participants to creatively respond to the artworks and themes in the Bones in the Attic group exhibition through a vibrant programme of visual art and writing workshops, screenings, tours and talks. Bones in the Attic is a cross generational group show with work by artists Sarah Jayne Booth, Myrid Carten, Dorothy Cross, Amanda Doran, Rita Duffy, Jesse Jones, Alice Maher, Eleanor McCaughey, Na Cailleacha, Kathy Prendergast, and Ruby Wallis. The exhibition will consider ongoing issues within our society such as domestic abuse, beauty standards, women’s bodies, gender roles and women’s safety and will provide a backdrop for audience discussions in a safe environment. The cultural undercurrent of the exhibition will focus on Irish mythology and the strong female characters of our Celtic heritage, celebrating women, our roots and the future of feminism in Ireland for all.
Facilitated by Kimberly Griffith Walsh.
The Summer School will take place in-person at Hugh Lane Gallery. Space is limited. All materials included. EUR50. Please book here.
