An Update from LIVESTOCK:
Dear Performance Art Community and Allies
We send our deepest condolences to all of you who have lost friends and family throughout this pandemic, and our mutual support in getting through this challenging time together safely and sanely.
It is with some sadness that we announce the rescheduling of Livestock’s current programme of events at MART. We hope to move our events into the Autumn. We had hoped the current situation would improve and we would be able to hold events in May but the government decision regarding restrictions on gatherings makes this impossible at the moment.
We are also looking at alternative ways to bring performance art to you in the months ahead.
Big thank you to MART, as always, for accommodating us!
Updates to follow.

MART curators Matthew Nevin & Ciara Scanlan are delighted to present the exhibition A Rhythm Exposed (Routines: 5-6) by Steven Maybury, kindly supported by The Arts Council of Ireland.
Preview: Thursday 11 May 2017 @ 6pm
Location: The MART Gallery, 190A Rathmines Rd, Lwr, Dublin 6.
Runs to: 8 June 2017
Open: Tues-Sat: 1-6pm
A Rhythm Exposed (Routines: 5–6) represents the artist’s travel and conversations, combined with a curiosity into Buddhist doctrine concerning the three marks of existence. Focusing on the characteristics of Anicca, Dukkha and Anatta – Paliwords for impermanence, anxiety or suffering and non-self. They are used here as a reference to questions of interest, concern and ritual. The three characteristics are common to all forms of existence.
This exhibition is part of the artist’s ongoing Routines series. In this series, which began in 2016, drawing is used as a key conceptual tool for the artist to examine obsessions in archiving, ownership and preservation and invites contemplation of the meticulous use of ink, light, and time on the aesthetic of the artworks. It is a continuous process of assembling and making, informed by reactions to the artist’s personal encounters.
