Things to Do in Dublin – 28th Jan – 3rd Feb 2013


Art – Ned Kelly is gone, and shame on those that missed it! Alice Maher‘s show at IMMA (Earlsfort Terrace) is really impressive (until Feb 27th), and the Tribal Textiles from Iran continues in the Douglas Hyde (until Jan 30th). ‘In the world I live‘  (Irish artist Lawrence Carroll) and  Stepping Into the Light (Group show including Pat Scott) continues at the Hugh Lane. Blackshaw at 80 (A complete legend in my book!) and Justin Larkin Scenery continue at the RHA until Feb 24th. There’s also a Richter and Polka exhibition, that has to be seen! The Turner’s close on the 30th in the National Gallery.

Private Galleries: Bono’s mate Gugi is at the Kerlin (until the 23rd Feb). Jessica Sturgess (Sculptor)  is at the Oliver Sears until 28th Feb. The Black Church Print Studio show ‘Repitition‘ is at the Cross Gallery (until Jan 31st). The Kevin Kavanagh Gallery is showing Elaine Byrne. Janus is at the Peppercanister Gallery.

Theatre – Bedroom Farce starts at the Gate, with previews from Friday.  A Clamour of Rooks is at Smock Alley from Friday. Dance Ireland 21 is the big new event of the week, with Made in Dublin having events in the Project, The Abbey (Liz Roche’s ‘Body and Forgetting‘) and Meeting House square, among others. There’s a pick and mix deal in the project with three shows for €45, so go explore! Cosi Fan Tutte is on in the Sam Beckett.

Movies –  The Year of the Snake is a festival of Chinese films, celebrating the Chinese new years, at the Lighthouse! Part 2 of their Genius of Hitchcock season nears it’s end with Torn Curtain and Topaz this week.


Gigs – This may well be the worst week in January, and I guess they just figure everyone is completely broke! They might be right. Amiee Mann and Martha Wainwright are the stand out events.
