What happens when sixteen visual artists, two sculptors, a performance poet, a writer, a
musician, a singer, a performance artist and an actor / producer meet in a room in Ireland?
Between them they decide to collaborate, to join talents and move their art into spheres they
haven’t explored before. Between them they set up the first intercultural, cross disciplinary
artistic collaborative to come out of Ireland …in 2014.
And they call themselves:
‘idir’ – from the gaelic for ‘between’ …signifying collaboration between artists, between cultures,
between countries and continents.
This October they are invited by the New York Foundation For The Arts.
to tour their work to DUMBO, NY for a four month exhibition.
Please join us on 9th October
6-9pm for the opening of the New York exhibition.
