Exhibition: Dodo Presents: ‘Points of Departure’
Filmbase all weekend
The Dodo Collective was formed in 2009 to explore the tensions in new media art and technological obsolescence. What does it mean to make art that relies on digital formats that perhaps will be inaccessible in the future? ‘Points of Departure’ is the fourth Dodo Collective exhibition and is intended to bring together each members’ own perspective on new media art and, inadvertently, what might remain of these artworks in a decade from now.
Exhibition: Don’t Look Now
26 – 31 October, La Catedral Studios, 7/11 Augustine Street, Dublin 8
Ideas of fear and fate, foreboding, omens, signs and intuition are central to this collection of work in textiles, print, animation, photography and sound inspired by Daphne du Maurier’s short story and Nicholas Roeg’s 1973 film adaptation. Don’t Look Now opens 26 October and runs until 31 October 2010 from 1-5pm daily
