Black Brain Radio - Garrett Phelan - Temple Bar Gallery & Studios


Dates:
Thu Jan 19, 2006 00:00 - Thu Jan 12, 2006

Garrett Phelan - Black Brain Radio

Radio ……….Not as you know it!!!

Black Brain Radio will be broadcast to the County of Dublin on 89.9fm
19th January - 17th February 2006.

To hear the broadcast on line from January 19th go to http://www.garrettphelan.com/now.htm

Preview: Thursday 19th January 2006, 6-8pm at Temple Bar Gallery

Black Brain Radio is an unconventional and innovative radio artwork created by Irish artist Garrett Phelan with Temple Bar Gallery and Studios and in partnership with the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA). The transmission will be broadcast around the clock over a thirty-day period from 19 January 2006 to listeners within the greater County Dublin area on a frequency of 89.9fm. In addition, Black Brain Radio will have the capacity to reach a wider global audience through its dedicated on-line presence, located at http://www.garrettphelan.com/now.htm from January 19th 2006.

The project will be further extended by two gallery installations at Temple Bar Gallery and Studios and the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA). Phelan's Black Brain Radio is a continuation of his most recent large scale drawing projects, which explore the processes through which ideas or values enter into society. In a similar manner to the drawing projects, the listener is presented with an onslaught of regurgitated information, in this instance, reprocessed through the artist's voice presented as a series of confusing, disjointed, sound works. Black Brain Radio provides the listener with the opportunity to access through their own radio the core of Phelan's current practice, which is an exploration into the 'formation of opinion'.

In both Temple Bar Gallery and Studios and the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) Phelan will broaden the scope of understanding for his ideas through on-site installations. Black Brain Radio is public art in the true sense of the phrase, yet the experience is accessible to people on an intimate and private scale. The radio represents a metaphysical gallery within peoples' own homes, their cars and their offices. Wherever there is access to a radio or the internet, it will be possible to tune in and engage with Phelan's artistic practice on a personal level.

Garrett Phelan, a Dublin-based artist, has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally and has been involved in a number of groundbreaking projects that explore the relationship between radio and art. Phelan's most recent projects, NOW:HERE 2003, LUNGLOVE 2004 and GOD ONLY KNOWS 2005 were large-scale drawing installations presented through site-specific projects in non-gallery spaces including the Dublin Civic Offices as well as Manifesta 5, European Biennial in San Sebastian, Spain. The drawings are part of an extensive exploration into the formation of opinion, the first phase, including this radio project, focuses directly on 'reception of information'.

An in-depth forum discussion on alternative ways of considering radio and art will happen over the morning of Friday 17 February 2006. The key speakers will be Anna Colin from Resonance 104.4fm, London's first radio art station, Heidi Grundman from Kunstradio, Austria, Lorelei Harris, Features, Arts & Drama Editor with RTE Radio 1 and artist Garrett Phelan - Venue: The Irish Museum of Modern Art.

Black Brain Radio represents the first partnership between Temple Bar Gallery & Studios and the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) and is co-curated by Noel Kelly (TBG&S) and Sean Kissane (IMMA). Black Brain Radio can also be accessed on-line at www.templebargallery.com and www.imma.ie.

Deadline:
Sun May 08, 2005 16:31

Temple Bar Gallery & Studios is one of Ireland's leading contemporary art venues. Centrally located in Temple Bar, Dublin's designated Cultural Quarter, TBG&S is a publicly funded, not-for-profit organisation which hosts a high profile programme of Irish and international art. This programme includes the work of both established and emerging artists working in a wide range of media and has in recent years featured such artists as Katie Holten, Caroline McCarthy, Shirana Shahbazi, Walker and Walker, Dan Shipsides and Oliver Comerford. The 2004 programme included exhibitions by Jon Brunberg and Brendan Early, Malachi Farrell, Stephen Brandes and Susan McWilliam. The 2005 programme to date has featured solo shows by Mariele Neudecker and Mick O'Kelly and also includes exhibitions by Ene-Liis Semper, Mark Raidpere, Finola Jones, and Garrett Phelan.
TBG&S was established by artists in 1983 in response to the increasing demands for affordable studio spaces in Dublin city centre, a move which proved to be crucial in consolidating Temple Bar's status as Dublin's cultural quarter. In the mid-1990's a new gallery and studio complex was custom-designed for the company by leading Irish architects McCullough / Mulvin. Today the building that houses TBG&S integrates a gallery with on-street access, an impressive atrium space and 30 artists' studios. The use of these studios reflects the broad-ranging developments in contemporary practice, as artists working with photography, video, sound, sculpture, print and painting all currently studio spaces at TBG&S

A number of studio spaces become available for use over the year. We accept applications at specific times during the year.

Project Studios are available for short-term use and for varied periods - from one month to one year. Applications for project studios are assessed on the basis of a specific proposal. While welcoming projects that focus on individual practice, applications made on the basis of public projects, collaborative projects or education and community activity will also be considered. Proposals should include an outlined plan for the use of the studio over a set period of time.

Currently, the first of these studios will become available in January 2006. The closing date for receipt of applications for this round is 5.00pm Friday 20th May 2005.

Shane Cullen Sculpture commemorating The OaRahilly to be unveiled on Friday 29 April 2005


Dates:
Fri Apr 29, 2005 00:00 - Mon Apr 18, 2005

Dublin based artist Shane Cullen to unveil a sculpture commemorating The O’Rahilly, the only member of the 1916 leadership killed in action during the Easter Rising, on Friday 29 April 2005 at O'Rahilly Parade, Off Moore Street, Dublin 1.

On Friday 29th April 2005 at 12.00pm, with an audience of city dignitaries, politicians, leading political figures, business people, and artists, the new Shane Cullen bronze wall mounted sculpture will be dedicated by Blathnaid Ui Rathaille, daughter-in-law of The O’Rahilly, on O'Rahilly Parade, Off Moore Street, Dublin 1.

The O¹Rahilly was one of the leaders of the Irish Volunteers who staged the Easter Rising of 1916. He was the first of the leaders to be killed, and the only one to die in action. Born in 1875, Michael Rahilly spent many years travelling in Europe and America (where he married) before returning to Ireland in 1909, when he became actively involved in Irish nationalism. He worked with Arthur Griffith on the new Sinn Fein Daily and took part in the activities of the Gaelic League. In 1912 he wrote a series of articles for the monthly Irish Freedom in which he argued the case for an armed uprising. On 11th November 1913 O¹Rahilly convened a meeting in Dublin¹s Wynn¹s Hotel at which it was decided to form the Irish Volunteers. As the member of the executive responsible for arms procurement he was one of the organisers of the 1914 Howth gun-running, together with Mary Spring Rice and Erskine Childers.

The O’Rahilly died after being shot on the last day of the Easter Rising, while leading a charge against an army barricade on Moore Street. As he lay dying in a doorway he wrote a farewell note to his wife, on the reverse side of a note which his son had written to him during the rising. The note had been punctured by one of the fatal bullets.

The Artist: Shane Cullen was born in Longford in 1957 and is currently living and working in Dublin. His work has been widely exhibited in Europe, the United States and Canada. In 1995 he represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale and most recently at the inaugural Lodz Biennale in Poland 2004. He has spent periods of residency in Hungary and France and in 1998 was awarded the P.S.1. Fellowship at the Museum for Contemporary Art in New York. In 1992 he founded the Council for the Preservation of Monuments to Martyrdom and Resistance and is an active member of the Culture and Conflict Group. In 2002 he presented a vast sculptural work The Agreement (www.theagreement.org) based on a complete transcription of what is more commonly known as the Good Friday Agreement which has toured widely throughout Great Britain and Ireland. He is currently collaborating on a long term project with the Courage to Refuse (www.seruv.org.il) and will be presenting the next manifestation of this project at the National Sculpture Factory in Cork in July 2005 with fellow artists John Buckley and David Crawforth.
