New exhibition on show in Sisk Gallery

1,2,3,4: Dance in contemporary artists’ films open to the public from 17 August

This dynamic new exhibition, showcasing films by Irish and international artists, invites audiences to discover the ways in which artists have captured dance and choreography on camera. From August to December, we’ll be presenting a series of four month-long programmes of films from Ireland, Democratic Republic of the Congo, New Zealand, Russia, The United States, France, and Germany. From solo ballet performances to public interventions, choreographed routines to street dance styles, 1,2,3,4 is an exhibition that moves in new and different directions.  

The Glucksman continues to explore and produce programmes of challenging contemporary artworks from across the world. As we welcome audiences back in a safe distance capacity, 1,2,3,4 presents a series of short screening exhibitions that capture new and exciting trends in both dance and visual art. With each programme running at between 20 and 32 minutes, this innovative exhibition format will also allow visitors to comfortably experience a range of different artistic practices and cinematic approaches in the coming months. 

1,2,3,4 kicks off on 17 August with a programme of films by the artists Victor Alimpiev (Russia), Sammy Baloji (DR Congo), and Sriwhana Spong (New Zealand). In the coming months, programmes will feature works by Anne Maree Barry (Ireland), Liz Magic Laser(USA) and Wu Tsang (USA), Loretta Fahrenholz (Germany), and Jimmy Robert (France) and Úna Quigley (Ireland). 

The exhibition is curated by Chris Clarke, Senior Curator at the Glucksman.
