We’re just heading into the Bank Holiday weekend and there’s more than a few events around the streets of Dublin. There’s a few new plays doing the rounds as well as the Forbidden Fruit Festival and Bloom festival of all things green in the Phoenix park. See the details below…
183rd RHA Annual Exhibition runs from 28 May-17 Aug, 2013. It always feels like summer to me when this exhibition opens! It’s well worth a look, and a great snap shot of art in Ireland.
I knOw yoU– IMMA Earlsfort Terrace – 19 April – 1st Sept 2013 – “I knOw yoU is a dynamic exhibition by a new generation of young European artists” or so says the blurb on the new exhibition in IMMA @ NCH (Earlsfort Terrace). It features the work of over 50 artists, so should be something for everyone! Quite looking forward to this one, Tino Sehgal also continues in the same venue.
Gallery 1 – Nigel Cooke, Gallery 2 – The Paradise – Ciaran Murphy – Douglas Hyde from May 31st until July 17th. (Nigel Cooke image above)

I don’t know about you but I spent the weekend trying to spot Lana Del Rey around Dublin! I think I nearly knocked her off her bike near the canal in my car (she was cycling in the middle of the road in a dreamy state!). Ok, it possibly wasn’t her, just some other spaced out tourist. The madness that is Forbidden Fruit is the main attraction this week, with Primal Scream and Chic among many others! The Hypnotic Brass Band are back in the Sugar Club, and are possibly here more often than Leonard Cohen!
