VAN’s May/June issue features coverage of several major exhibitions, including ‘i See Earth’ at VISUAL, Carlow, and ‘girls girls girls’ at Lismore Castle Arts. Also featured in this issue is an interview with Rónán Ó Raghallaigh, a profile on the 40th anniversary of Black Church Print Studio, a Regional Focus on County Longford, and much more.
This issue introduces a new column series focusing on ‘endings’ from the Department of Ultimology, as well as several Arts & Disability columns, variously outlining: Arts & Disability Ireland’s Curated Space programme; Visual Thinking Strategies for people with visual impairments; and the realities of maintaining an art practice whilst living with chronic pain or long-term illness.
In Member Profiles for this issue, Orla O’Byrne reports from a stone-carving residency in Northern Italy, while Gillian Fitzpatrick and Justin Donnelly discuss their participation in ‘Moon Gallery: Test Flight’, which recently sent artworks to the International Space Station.
