Dara McGrath: Dara McGrath’s central concern lies in exploring transitional spaces, those in-between places where architecture, landscape and the built environment often intersect, and where a dialogue – of absence rather than presence – is created. His practice is driven by explorations of these charged, shifting entities – buildings that have come to the end of their functionality, the changing functionality of a landscape, human interruptions in the landscape – that exist in urban, rural and suburban contexts. The resultant photoworks are realised both with the gallery space and as site-specific installations and interventions.

Garrett Phelan: Garrett Phelan has exhibited extensively in Ireland and internationally, most recently a major solo exhibition at the Irish Museum of Modern Art and a commission for the 11th Lyon Biennale. His distinctive art practice directly engages with immersive and ambitious site-specific projects such as FM radio broadcasts, sculptural installations, photography and animation. To mark the 30th anniversary, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios are commissioning artist Garrett Phelan to make an iconic art work for Dublin. Launching on May 1st, ‘OUR UNION ONLY IN TRUTH’ will stand tall on the roof of TBG+S, looking over Temple Bar Square. This art work will act as a beacon for the TBG+S building and share an uplifting message as a new landmark for the city and its inhabitants.
There will be NO talk on Wednesday 29th May.
Please see www.corkprintmakers.ie for further details about the project.

Critical Bastards Magazine is seeking submissions for Issue 10. This issue will depart from previous printed format to be purely audio in form.
We are seeking audio reviews, interviews, and articles about art. What we are looking for is a creative response to this call; we are not looking for reviews which are simply written and then recorded.
What we are looking for are clearly recorded, concise, coherent reviews and responses to work, that emphasise and explore how the spoken word influences the structure of the article. Although the format will be in audio form, we are looking for reviews and articles about all kinds of work, not sound work in particular.
We welcome audio articles of no longer than 15 minutes duration, submitted with an image that relates to the content.
Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Recordings will be selected on the fitness of their inclusion in the issue.
Our curated slideshows generally consist of 20-25 artists, with each artist featuring up to five minutes of original work. In most cases, this is a slideshow of between 15 and 40 images. Every slideshow is set to music or an audio recording that the artist has selected. We generally accept all types of submissions, as long as the work can be represented fairly in a slideshow format. Pre-produced multimedia submissions are also welcome, as long as they fit within our guidelines and format.
For more information, and details on how to submit, please visit: www.slideluck.com/submissions
Deadline: 14th June at 6pm
