From Beijing to Grimsby

National Centre for the Performing Arts, Beijing, China.



I am taking part in a few exhibitions this month. The first is Instruments of Pleasure, an exhibition in the National Centre for Performing Arts in Beijing, China as part of this year's Irish Wave which is on the 11th of March.

Instruments of Pleasure is the only IRISH WAVE 3 exhibitions which will feature Irish artists exclusively.
Because of the nature of the exhibition space the theme focuses on the iconography surrounding music – performance, instruments & annotation and artists who approach this theme from a contemporary perspective.
Respected Dublin Composer Grainne Mulvey has composed an IRISH WAVE ‘Clapping’ piece which will be performed at this and all the other Beijing Previews.
In addition there will be art auctions held during the preview events at the Irish Centre Shanghai and at the Yan Chao Collection Gallery, The YCC preview will also feature a performance by the Jensens Dancers.
As with the other exhibitions the artworks featured will be from a wide range of media.

The second is Lightworks an annual new media exhibition held in Grimsby, Lincolnshire, UK. I have embedded the video from their last exhibition below, which looks great. I love when galleries/exhibitions put together promo films. I keep trying to do it myself, but its a lot of work.
