“The events of the last weeks involving the seal of records of the Mother and Baby Homes Commission testify to the enduring and contested force of law in shaping cultural memory through generations. Law can protect and defend but also silence. This is an important moment to share the work of the artists in the TULCA programme, The Law is a White Dog.
While we can’t yet open the doors to the exhibitions or host live performances, there are many parts of the programme that will be accessible for audiences to experience from 6 November. These include a billboard in Galway city, the first collaboration between Vukasin Nedeljovic and Felispeaks. I’m also excited that we can share a newly-published book and a podcast series, both of which place artworks in dialogue with lawyers, advocates and activists such as Justice for Magdalenes Research, Máiréad Enright, Maeve O’Rourke, Eilionóir Flynn and Maria Ní Flatharta. These publications and broadcasts from Galway bring together contemporary art and socio-legal research of national and international significance.
New projects are being developed for The Law is a White Dog by Caroline Campbell (Loitering Theatre) and Soft Fiction Projects that will be shared online. These projects involve collaboration with an older generation of feminist activists, and with CAPE and shOUT! youth groups in Galway, respectively. Art happens even when galleries are closed. Now is a valuable time to reflect and attend to those practices, wherever we find ourselves.”
