Please be invited to a lovely one-day Festival of Art, an event NOT TO BE MISSED!
I've had a pleasure to participate in this lovely project as a Marketing Director, after few months of hard work STARGAZE* is finally going to be aired this weekend! can't wait!
Contemporary artist Áine Macken, will curate a collection of Ireland's most established artistic talents showcasing sculpture, photography, painting, installation, performance, graffiti and video. Much of the work will deal with a take on the idea of Stargaze* as a day for spiritual revival and awakening, and how one can choose to investigate the problems, curiosities and contradictions that may arise from defining the ideas of creativity and spirituality in the context of a contemporary suburban Dublin.
Some of the artists involved include; Catherine Harty, Alan Clarke, Maser, Killian Redmond, Jason Dunne, Aoife Giles, Aoife De Búrca, Cecillia Bullo, Emer Roberts, Gerry Lee, Geraldine Lane, Gaetan Billault, Emily Aoibheann, Lucy McKenna, GIB, Duffy Mooney Shepard, Emma Dwan O'Reilly, Cliona O'Flaherty, Chris Judge, Fionn Kidney, Adrian Gallagher, Morgan Art, Bennie Reilly, Feargal O'Malley, Paul Kelly, Maciek Peska, Peter Neill, Ian O'Neill, Sharon Murphy, Claudia Marion, Wojtek Wojcik, Daria Pietryka, and Fiona Walsh, Agata Stoinska, Lorna Fitzsimons, and Caroline Lynch.
Live music and DJ’s will set a relaxed, mellow atmosphere including jazz and acoustic sets from some of the city’s finest bands and music makers. Street performers will entertain throughout the day. Including Supersuperdisco, Ciarán Rua and Alice Kain, The Alistair Elliman Trio, Luke Brother, Stace Gill, Phonic Athletic, Orphan Code, and Neosupervital
The evening will culminate in a series of performances from salsa dancing and burlesque to exotic.
Theatre group Come as Soon as you Hear will present a theatrical piece; Meet You There - "On a stool by the bar sits a girl with a scar and a broken heart. Sit with her awhile and hold her hand and see if you can help. Follow the trail, put the pieces together. A game, a treasure hunt of sorts. But it's a secret."
A secluded screening room will also showcase up and coming works by full-length and short film makers, while also featuring music videos and visual music projections.
Meanwhile, the craft area will be a source of interactive experiences such as salsa dancing, live art, origami, knitting circles, creative writing and graffiti demonstrations.
Complimentary snacks and refreshments will also be provided on the day. There is a fee of €10 at the door.
