Top 5 Dublin events: March 6

An overview of top 5 events in Dublin for March 6.  

It is Friday – the right time to enjoy all the events Dublin has to offer on March 6. So, hit the City of Dublin and enjoy its cultural vibes during the day and its nightlife later on. Do not forget the International Women’s Day is coming up on March 8! Kick off celebrations today by attending Poetry Ireland’s event.

exhibition: (A)Dressing Our Hidden Truths

Alison Lowry is a rather uncommon artist in the context of Europe in her commentary through the medium of glass on such uneasy topics as child abuse and domestic violence.

This exhibition of Lowry’s work is divided into four distinct areas – installation of suspended sand-cast pâte de verre christening robes, sculptural works responding to the theme of the Magdalene Laundries, a video piece made with performance artist Jayne Cherry and a suit of armour using glass and leather created with the internationally renowned designer Úna Burke.

Venue: National Museum of Ireland

Time: see the opening times

Admission: free

exhibition: Queer-In-Progress . Timeline

QUEER-IN-PROGRESS. TIMELINE maps LGBTQ histories and even more specifically looks into lesbian, female-identified, transgender and feminist activism and practices. With a special focus on the 1980s, 1990s and the HIV campaigns, the project begins with an exploration into Project’s LGBTQ theatre history. This ongoing body of research has been collated by artist Hannah Tiernan (MFA, NCAD) and will be presented alongside her current investigation into the GCN (Gay Community News), IQA (The Irish Queer Archive / National Library of Ireland) and the Out Magazine archives.

During the two weeks the exhibition will also host ‘Public Viewing’ events that invite the public to participate in a conversation with guests who will moderate the close-reading of a selection of materials (documents, ephemera, music or moving images) relating to LGBTQ history, culture, politics, community relations, and public health. The gallery will also give space to a series of workshops and gatherings.

Venue: Project Arts Centre

Time: 17:00 – 19:00 on March 6. Other days: 11:00 – 18:00.
