Top 5* Design Events at Culture Night in The Liberties


Life, Love The Liberties, Visit

We set out to do a top 5 design events in The Liberties for Culture Night but seeing as this is Dublin’s premier design district and home to Ireland’s Arts & Antiques Quarter we failed to select just 5. Instead we’ve whittled the list down to 8. Even that was a challenge, phew!

Pallas Projects will host an interesting exhibition for Culture Night

Pallas Projects/Studios

Time: 5pm – 9pm | Event Page: Click here

Diagrams, curated by Belfast-based academic Niamh McDonnell, is a mixed media show of work by 7 Irish and Northern Irish artists based in Belfast, Dublin and London, comprising lens-based media, drawings, paintings and sculptures. The exhibition sees each artist using the diagram to describe a previous work or to make a preliminary sketch for a new work. The show explores how the dynamic space of the diagram visualizes different sets of relations between elements and so generates multiple reading narratives.
