TULCA Festival of Visual Art presents UnSelfing; a programme of exhibitions, performances and encounters with visual art taking place in Galway and across the country. It takes as its theme Iris Murdoch’s concept of ‘UnSelfing’; the idea that in order to find inner truth, it is necessary to seek outside of one’s self; to be curious about the people, places and ideas that surround us.
‘Arrivals’ is a dynamic launch event taking place on a moving train featuring artist Isadora Epstein and a cast of performers interpreting the ideas of Iris Murdoch.
‘Deep States’ is an exhibition curated by Helen Carey at Nuns’ Island Theatre. A sculptural installation acts as a backdrop to a series of performances by Dominic Thorpe and Boris Nieslony, asking: ‘who is abusing who’ in politics.
‘Threads’, curated by Sarah Searson at the Dock Carrick-On-Shannon features video, sculpture and photography by Austin Ivers examining Cold War systems of state control, with a related programme of talks, readings and screenings.

Deep States 13–27 March, 11am–5pm, Nuns Island Theatre, Galway
