'MARKS' LAUNCH - ALL WELCOME!
One of the two collaborative projects I mentioned I was involved with earlier this year. Cora and I did our piece on the soon-to-be-demolished, iconic Dublin building Liberty Hall. Our four page spread includes poems, etchings and photographs.
Marks, a joint publication from The Stinging Fly literary magazine, and Circa, the visual art magazine, will be launched on the 15th of October.
Earlier this year, the two magazines came together to pair six writers and six artists, giving them the brief to fill four magazine pages with whatever they wished, through a collaborative exploration of the possibilities.
The pairings are:
Caitríona O'Reilly (writer) and Isabel Nolan (artist)
Kevin Barry (writer) and Seán Lynch (artist)
Nuala Ní Chonchúir (writer) and Cora Cummins (artist)
Alan Jude Moore (writer) and Bea McMahon (artist)
Sinéad Morrissey (writer) and Benji de Búrca (artist)
Seán O'Reilly (writer) and Peter Maybury (artist).
Marks will be launched next Wednesday October 15th at Studio 6 of Temple Bar Gallery and Studios, Temple Bar, Dublin 2. The event runs from 6pm to 8ish and will feature readings by Kevin Barry and Nuala Ní Chonchúir, and sound work by Peter Maybury.
Admission is free. All are welcome.
A free copy of Marks is going to all subscribers of either publication... another good reason to subscribe... otherwise a limited number of copies will be available at €6 each.
