All Our Relations / Ár gCaidreamh Uilig is a group exhibition with new commissions from Jenny Brady and Moad Musbahi, works by Maryam Tafakory and Naeem Mohaiemen and a public programme with Amal Khalaf, Anna Bunting-Branch and Aliyah Hussain – set within an exhibition framework based on the ad hoc Covid screens that have defined our public space in recent months.
Proposing the gallery as a civic space, and a place of communication and discussion, the video and text-based sculptural works in this exhibition consider dialogue, miscommunication, forms of oration, translation and transliteration. The public programme connected to the exhibition will look at how we can test methods to prefigure different communicative relationships.
As we navigate shifting restrictions engendered by the global pandemic – faltering between social distance measures and reopening plans, connection through technology and craving for touch – the works in All Our Relations / Ár gCaidreamh Uilig speak to the tensions, missteps and powerful potential of how we connect, gather together and communicate with one another.
