Join Mayo County Council Arts Service this Saturday July 03rd for two online talks as part of I am What I am, an exhibition celebrating queer art and culture at Ballina Arts Centre.
Judith Finlay (NMI) (QCI)
Lecture on Judith’s work at the National Museum’s first LGBTI+ exhibition and Queer Culture Ireland, Saturday July 3rd 12 – 1 pm
In 2019, Judith led the National Museums first LGB-TI+ exhibition, Rainbow Revolution and co-founded Queer Culture Ireland (QCI) with Kate Drinane, a support network for anyone interested in Irish Queer Culture. In 2020 QCI launched The Quilt: Echoes & Memories, all forming part of her PhD exploring The Healing Museum.
Online lecture on Art and Activism: Louise Walsh Saturday, July 3rd from 2 – 3 pm
Louise Walsh’s art is both personal and political. Her artworks engage with queer identities and make strong statements. Looking at early explorations of female relationships, the evolving form of ‘In-Laws, Out-Laws’ and her new work, this talk will engage with Walsh as an artist and activist who continues to challenge audiences.
Register for both talks at Ballina Arts Centre.
This is an initiative of Mayo County Council Arts Service in partnership with the Arts Council of Ireland with support from the Creative Ireland Programme
