The Douglas Hyde is delighted to present a new music session where artist Bill Harris will host an experimental electronic dance night as part of our First Thursday series. Through this new series of late openings, the gallery becomes a space for hosting unexpected, experimental practices across multiple artforms from live music and expanded cinema […]
In this lunchtime talk, artist Grace Weir will talk on her contribution to A Visibility Matrix, the exhibition initiated by Dublin-based artists Sven Anderson and Gerard Byrne installed in Gallery 1 from June 7 to August 25, 2018. Read more about A Visibility Matrix here.
For her contribution to A Visibility Matrix, Weir chose her 2015 video work Black Square. The work takes a documentary approach to the making of an image of the black hole that lies in the exact centre of the Milky Way Galaxy. Black Square documents the artist and the film crew as they journey across the Atacama Desert in Chile to the telescopes at the top of Cerro Paranal, where an astronomy team from the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics is at work, observing the galactic centre.
