InContext 3 at RUA RED, Tallaght
Audio-visual slideshow from Alight, an exhibition in RUA RED Gallery, Tallaght, featuring interviews with composer Jennifer Walshe, Curator, and Rachel McAree, Public Art Coordinator of South Dublin County Council.
Alight, featuring two members of the Grúpat collective was on display from 25 November 2008 to 19 December 2008 at RUA RED, South Dublin's new arts centre. Grúpat is a group of South Dublin-based sound artists. Works by Violetta Mahon and The Parks Service made up the show of sound shrines, role playing games, sound installations and sculptural works, which was complimented by an educational programme, as well as talks, tours and events during 2008.
The Grúpat collective will be the focus of a full retrospective in the Project Arts Centre in February 2009. This is the first major Irish retrospective for the collective and has been curated by Jennifer Walshe and commissioned by In Context 3, South Dublin County Council's Per Cent for Art Programme 2006 -2009. It will include an installation consisting of music, sound poetry, fashion and photography, with a musical performance by Grúpat.
