An Chuid eile – Concerning the Other in the city of Belfast

print from the Concerning the Other art project

Now, this exhibition was supposed to be opening last week in Belfast but the weather messed up our plans. C‘est la vie (as Olivier Cornet, one of the three curators, might say) but it’s opening tonight instead.

In times of mounting racism, intolerance and conflict, Concerning the Other is a project that seeks to promote tolerance, compassion and diversity and, in particular, to show concern for minorities. It will be opening tonight at QSS – the Queen Street Studios & Gallery in Bedford Street, Belfast. You can see more about it here

And we are extremely grateful for the great support we received through our Fundit campaign. We had over sixty generous donors who made it all possible. Yes, there are some genuine Patrons of the Arts still living here today!

An Chuid eile –

An bhfuil imní ort faoin easaontas agus faoin éadulaingt atá ag teacht chun tosaigh na laethanta seo? An gcuireann an chiníochas isteach ort? N’fheadar an bhfuil tú beagáinín “dearg le fearg” tar éis cliseadh na gcainteanna san Tuaisceart le déanaí?

Bhuel, seans go mbeadh spéis agat san taispeántas ealaíne seo a bhéas ag oscailt anocht i mBéal Feirste, taispeántas dar teideal dó “An Chuid eile / Concerning the Other”. Is é seo an dara uair ar chuireamar an taispeántas ar siúl – bhí leagan eile de againn anuraidh i mBaile Átha Cliath, i nGailearaí Olivier Cornet.

Tháinig deichniúr ealaíontóir comhaimseartha le chéile le saothar ealaíne a chruthú don togra seo. Thosaigh gach ealaíontóir ar phíosa amháin agus sheol sé/sí é ar aghaidh go dtí an dara ealaíontóir. D’oibrigh an dara ealaíontóir air ansin agus sheol sé/sí é sin ar aghaidh go dtí an tríú ealaíontóir agus mar sin de… Ag deireadh bhí gach duine tar éis oibriú ar ghach phíosa ealaíne.

Agus cén fáth go ndearna muid é seo?  Bhuel, mheas muid gur bhfiú dúinn rud eicint dearfa a dhéanamh le muintearas a chothú sa phobail. Bíonn sé deacair scaití, comhoibriú le daoine eile ach – nach fiú go mór é?

‘Siad na h-ealaíontóirí a bhí i gceist ná: Brian Fay, Claire Halpin, James Hanley, Joanna Kidney, Miriam McConnon, Kate Murphy, Ben Readman, Gail Ritchie, Susanne Wawra agus mé fhéin.

Beidh an taispeántas ar siúl go dtí deireadh mí Márta i nGailearaí QSS ar Sráid Bedford, BT2 7EJ.  Beidh sé ar oscailt gach seachtain ó Máirt go Déardaoin óna 10 go dtí 5 i.n.

Tá leathnach speisialta againn ag:  https://www.facebook.com/ConcerningtheOther/

Agus muna féidir leat teacht tú féin, b’fhéidir go scaipfeá an scéal dúinn. Go raibh míle maith agat.
