Karen Till is curating an intellectual week as part of a major art exhibition in Dublin. Down at the Point a set of temporary exhibition spaces have been created, see www.dublinbiennial.com/. The Biennial includes internationally known Irish artists together with figures such as Yoko Ono from further flung places. Together with Dr Marisa Ronan of Dubliintellectual, Karen has organized a week of talks, field trips, film screenings, performances, concerts and exhibitions. In broad terms the idea is to respond to the city of Dublin much as James Joyce himself did in "Ulysses". From our Department, Sinéad Kelly, Rob Kitchin, and Gerry Kearns are joining Karen for some of the events. Highlights include a visit and songs from Luka Bloom, a screening of the film of Ulysses, "Bloom", together with a discussion with the director, likewise a showing of Trafficked and a discussion with the director, a performance piece with Olwen Fouéré and Andrew Duggan; a fieldwalk around the docklands with local planners and community leaders; a retrospective of the films of Danny Eisenberg; and discussions with a series of artists who will be showing works in installation and video.
