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).

Spoken Word – Ten Days in Dublin
10 days in Dublin continues this week, with the things that look most interesting to me are Disco Pigs (image above) and Dave and Dave, but there’s a huge amount to choose from. Howie the Rookie at the Project Arts Centre and An Enemy of the People at the Gate are both top notch!

Eye to eye is at the IFI, which is a look at cinematography in cinema. This week there’s Manhattan among others.
