Silver Night is an evening event curated by Visual Artist Liliane Puthod and inspired by the Andy Warhol Three Times Out exhibition at Hugh Lane Gallery.
Teasing the temporality of consumer society and its disposable materiality in relation to age, work, sleep, display and beauty this public event will bring together music, fashion and dance performances in the Sculpture Hall of the gallery for an eclectic atmosphere capturing a feeling of ‘after the disco’. Silver Night will show wearables made during a workshop with NCAD Fashion Students, garments from collection Blue Rinse by Fashion Designer Eve O’Reilly as well as experimental outfits made together by Eve O’Reilly and Liliane Puthod (The Wasted Consumer, The Retired Dreamer and The Party Worker) which will be worn by dancers and performers Nick Nikolaou, Robyn Byrne and Peace Olufemi. Music will be performed by Acid Granny, Grave Goods and Shrem who will close the event with a DJ Set inspired by Warhol.
May you bring your most silver outfit to the party!
Doors open 7.45pm. Event begins at 8pm, starting with music by Acid Granny.

Biographies: Grave Goods
“Urgent and demanding, claustrophobic yet spacious, guaranteed to grab your attention” are just some of the ways Grave Goods’ music has been described. Based in Dublin and Manchester, their influences include early post-punk, minimalist rock and Sartre.
Grave Goods debut album TUESDAY. NOTHING EXISTS is visceral, angular and set against a lyrical backdrop of existential ennui. The album features singles COME, DIE and SOURCE.

Biographies: Acid Granny
Acid Granny make ‘Perfect Music For A Perfect World’ using their gadget-laden contraptions and an outstanding attitude. They improvise instant classics in response to whatever situation they find themselves in with “their very own brand of face-searing, genre-flaunting shock-and-awe, (The Thin Air). Beyond the music, the games of limbo, belly-slappings, trolley-chasing and aerobics initiate audiences into their momentary cult. They have thrilled and confused audiences on streets and venues across Ireland, the UK and Berlin, and thrived in festivals like Glastonbury and Electric Picnic.
