Following the guidance issued by the Government of Ireland on 12 March in relation to new measures to contain Covid-19, TULCA and Galway 2020 made the decision to postpone this event.
While we are extremely disappointed to have made these decisions, public health is our number one priority and we must follow Government advice.
Rescheduled date will be advertised.
This year TULCA is marking its 18th year, and has invited three alumni curators Sarah Searson, Gregory McCartney and Helen Carey to examine our challenging and irreplaceable world, working with Irish and European artists in Galway and other locations.
To mark this special occasion Galway based artist Austin Ivers will be presenting a new body of work consisting of ‘The World at War’, a new multi screen video work, photography and installed objects along with a programme of screenings, readings and a publication to document these events.
In these works and through a series of associated events, Ivers considers the psychic effects and the embodied materials of the Cold War on popular culture.
