FAMILY LINES is taking place across multiple platforms from October 2021 until September 2022 and includes Online and In-person Screenings, Public Billboards and Workshops.
The Douglas Hyde is delighted to present a commissioned solo exhibition by artist Alice Rekab. In their work Rekab explores embedded personal and cultural narratives; the stories that we tell and the stories that we are told about ourselves. This work emerges from their own mixed-race Irish identity, their family history, experiences of growing up, and the context of present day Ireland. Working across film, sculpture, performance, print and installation, they deftly consider the making of one’s belonging through the prisms of the body, the family and the nation state, exploring associated joy and trauma.
Artists present us with new perspectives on the world we live in. Explore the exciting ideas behind our programmes, hear more from the artists we work with and discover new ways of engaging with art.
