REWIND << FASTFORWARD >> RECORD: Revising the Rainbow (RFR)

23 March – 13 April 2022.

IMMA is delighted to present REWIND << FASTFORWARD >> RECORD: Revising the Rainbow (RFR) on the occasion of the exhibition The Narrow Gate of the Here-and-Now: Queer Embodiment, and coinciding with the OUTing the Past 2022: The International Festival of Lesbian Gay Bisexual & Trans History.

The RFR initiative is aimed at engaging with LGBTQ+ community groups on a national platform to uncover queer histories and expand their retelling and relevance through artistic interpretation. Through a series of talks, tours, workshops and personal accounts RFR will develop a body of creative responses to be presented as a touring exhibition to regional locations across the country.

As part of each regional exhibition, a further series of local talks and workshops will generate new creative responses expanding the material as it tours to each location. This cumulative material will form both a historical and a contemporary archive of hidden queer histories and current perspectives of RFR participants. RFR is an exploration of queer identity; past and present, and aims to connect us with both our history and our community.

By better understanding our past, we can ensure a more visible and equal future

Over a three-week period, RFR will engage with and respond to IMMA’s current exhibition The Narrow Gate of the Here-And-Now: Queer Embodiment. The RFR exhibition will showcase some of the work created with Fatima Groups United (Out South-Central LGBTQ+ group) as the exhibition evolves further through our workshops and interactions with the public, artists, and performers.

REWIND << FASTFORWARD >> RECORD is an initiative by Hannah Tiernan, researcher, writer and visual artist based in Dublin; Brendan Fox, independent curator, artist, writer and founder of the Museum of Everyone (MOE) and Aoife Banks, independent curator based in Dublin. Presented in collaboration with IMMA, RFR is supported by Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride and the Arts Council of Ireland.
