#ShowUsYourArt

An Exhibition of Works by Children from Dublin 15

Mon 20 Jul - Fri 28 Aug 2020 Ground Floor Gallery

An Initiative of Draíocht's Children/Youth Arts Programme during Covid19.

We are delighted to reopen Draíocht’s Ground Floor Gallery with an exhibition of 326 works made during lockdown by 164 children from 122 families living on the doorstep of Draíocht in Dublin 15. An initiative of Draíocht’s Children and Youth Arts Programme, #ShowUsYourArt invited its young artists aged 2-13 to make paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations and photographic images as a way to stay close and positively engage during the pandemic.

Over a period of twelve weeks between 30 March and 19 June, portfolios of artworks by the children emerged which investigated and represented their ideas around a range of themes from the experience of different seasonal festivals to the built environment and from the natural world to best friends, family ties and even superheroes. Each week Draíocht posted a selection of submissions online and, following the easing of restrictions, the artworks made their way to the Gallery for selection and installation. The Gallery has been designed to show the works on small shelves, on large round wooden wall based panels, in grid formations, on screens and a specially made soundscape of the children’s experience has been commissioned.

We are indebted to the children and families for their extraordinary commitment and enthusiasm.

Draíocht’s Galleries are open Monday-Friday
10am-6pm from 20 July 2020.
Visitor capacity has been reduced to allow for social distancing.

MAKing Art: PRINTing

New Impressions
Neil Dunne, Margot Galvin, Fiona Kelly, Aoife Scott

Ground Floor Gallery

Works from the Graphic Studio
Members from Fingal

First Floor Gallery

MAKing Art: PRINTing is the third in a series of exhibitions aimed at children and young people, which explores a particular visual art discipline, its materials, processes and varied manifestations. Printmaking is the focus of this third exhibition. It celebrates different techniques, styles and approaches to the use of print, to the act of printmaking and to the print as a finished artwork.

It includes two exhibitions: New Impressions (Ground Floor Gallery) explores how traditional printmaking techniques have been re-imagined and re-worked and invites us to consider: what makes a print a print? Common conceptions of printmaking are expanded, from two-dimensional to three-dimensional, from mass-produced to unique, from paper to mixed and digital media. The exhibition features artists whose work, though rooted in or referencing print, expands the boundaries of that medium. New Impressions includes artists Neil Dunne, Margot Galvin, Fiona Kelly and Aoife Scott.

Works from the Graphic Studio (First Floor Gallery) is an exhibition which marks the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the Graphic Studio and features members from Fingal who work across a range of process including etching, woodcut/lino, screen print and lithography. Artists include: Susan Early, Mary Grey, Julie Ann Haines, Michele Hetherington, Ernada Husic, Siobhan Hyde, Desmond Kenny, Michael Killen, Jennifer Lane, Pamela Leonard, Ned McLoughlin, Sorca O'Farrell and Una Sealy. The exhibition will also feature work by master printmakers, Niamh Flanagan and Robert Russell.

MAKing Art PRINTing will be accompanied by a programme of engagement for children and young people facilitated by participating artists and Draíocht’s Artist team.

Wed 23 Sep 2020 7.30PM Main Auditorium // €7.50 / €6 conc

1968: Having fallen on hard times, and desperate to re-establish herself, Judy Garland (an Oscar-winning Renée Zellweger) accepts a residency in London to perform a five-week, sold-out series of concerts. Separated from her children, who are back in Los Angeles where her ex-husband is fighting her for custody, and heavily dependant on drugs and alcohol, she reflects on her life, specifically her childhood, irreparably damaged by studio chief Louis B Mayer. Yet every night she still manages to dust herself off, welcome her fans and become “Judy Garland”, the star they all know and love.

What happens when a touring stand-up comedian can no longer stand up? After a near career-ending knee injury, O'Brien is too young for pilates and too unbalanced for yoga. This award-winning performer brings you his hilarious new hour of stand-up where self-destruction and self-discovery meet! ‘Reformer’ completely sold out its month-long run of shows at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Galway International Arts Festival, as well as a European and US tour and now he’s back touring the show nationwide and beyond! 

Following in the footsteps of Tommy Tiernan and Dylan Moran, Danny was handpicked this year to perform as part of the iconic ‘Best of the Edinburgh Fest’ show touring Australia. He has also featured on The Comedy Channel and is a regular on Irish TV and Radio. He has supported Today FM’s Dermot & Dave on three live tours and last year was asked to open for American comedian Bill Burr in front of over 7,000 people in Dublin.

Fri 5 Mar 2021 8PM Main Auditorium // €24 / €22 conc

In a world where women are expected to have the patience of Mother Teresa, the arse of Jennifer Lopez, the social media profile of Kim Kardashian and the BMI of Elle McPherson, the pressure is relentless. Dirtbirds, the comedy duo and internet sensation, present their hilarious new show ‘No Filters’ which takes a close look at the barrage of bullshit we are subjected to on a daily basis and reminds us that despite what we’re told, there is NO SUCH THING AS PERFECT ... (except maybe Jamie Dornan’s arse in Fifty Shades Darker.)

So.. if you need answers to questions like:
How do I have confidence when I feel lower than a snake’s arse?
How do I learn to love my muffin top?
When the kids wreck my head how do I stop myself from selling them on Done Deal?
… then this is definitely the show for you. (Perfect women not allowed in)
