Dublin Live Art Festival
August 10, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - August 14, 2016 @ 6:00 pm
Dublin Live Art Festival 2016 will take place in MART, Rathmines 10-14 August 2016
Taking place over five days and nights in MART, an artist-led, self-sustaining organisation for the development and promotion of contemporary art, Dublin Live Art Festival 2016 (DLAF16) will immerse you in this intriguing site and fascinating art form.
Our theme for this year’s Dublin Live Art Festival 2016 is the Politics of Freedom and we have invited artists whose work has a political edge to it, to take part and to present pieces that deal with the subject of freedom and the limitations put on us. We will have artists responding to ideas around race, queer and feminist politics as well as workshops and events to explore ideas of protest, otherness and being outside the box.
In this year of the centenary of our own Rising as well as international political instability and Brexit, our DLAF16 artists will investigate concepts of “the personal is political” to reflect the unrepresented through live art and our connections between personal experience and larger social and political structures.
Our DLAF16 artists will include, Harold Offeh (Uganda/ UK), Lena Simic (Croatia), Jelili Atiku (Nigeria), Julieann O’Malley (UK), Vickey Curtis (Ireland), Poppy Jackson (UK) as well as more fascinating artists to be confirmed.
