Radical Actions Seminar
Bernadette is the Irish iteration of the three part International Project ‘Radical Actions’ curated by Linda Shevlin. Supported by Culture Ireland, Roscommon County Council and Galway County Council, the ‘Radical Actions’ exhibition featuring Kennedy Browne, Duncan Campbell, Jesse Jones and Seamus Nolan was presented in RMIT Gallery, Melbourne in September 2016.
The final part of this project will take the form of a seminar in the historic setting of King House, Boyle. This seminar will look at the legacy of revolution & activism in Ireland and the artists’ role in shaping future states with speakers including Professor Luke Gibbons, artists Sarah Browne, Jesse Jones, Gareth Kennedy & Seamus Nolan, film maker Treasa O’Brien and photojournalist Paula Geraghty.
It will also feature a screening of the film “Eat Your Children” directed/written by Treasa O’Brien & co-directed/written by Mary Jane O’Leary. Eat Your Children documents the evolution of protest in modern day Ireland.
