Opening: Thursday 14 March, 6 to 8pm.
The Douglas Hyde Gallery is proud to present a radical new project entitled FREE THOUGHT FM by artist Garrett Phelan.
FREE THOUGHT FM interrogates the notion of ‘free thought’ in one of Ireland’s major cultural and educational settings, The Douglas Hyde Gallery in Trinity College Dublin. It will use the gallery as a public space, a bastion of free expression, conversation, thought and communication, but will also spread far beyond its walls.
At the heart of FREE THOUGHT FM is a 30-day live broadcast of conversations in the gallery between the artist Garrett Phelan, invited FREE THINKERS and members of the public. These conversations will open up the critical and often hidden issues of class inequality and inequality of access to education in the Dublin region.
FREE THOUGHT FM will broadcast LIVE from the DHG from Monday 25 March until Saturday 23 April 2019 on 105.2FM (Greater Dublin area only), and nationally/internationally online at www.freethoughtfm.com.
FREE THOUGHT FM, the exhibition, begins at 6pm on Thursday 14 March and runs until Saturday 25 May 2019.
FREE THOUGHT FM is funded through the Arts Council’s Making Great Art Work Open Call Award (2018), an Arts Council initiative which funds ambitious, one-off artistic projects by some of Ireland’s best artists and arts organisations.
