Opening Reception for Talamh agus Teanga: Land and Language in Contemporary Irish Art
January 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The FSU Museum of Fine Arts hosts an opening reception for Talamh agus Teanga: Land and Language in Contemporary Irish Art. Talamh agus Teanga engages the Irish language in contemporary creative practice to reflect on the interconnected world. Through visual art, dance, film, and performance, these Irish artists ground their work in the ethos of fite fuaite, the Irish phrase meaning “interwoven or inextricably connected”. Their artistic practices reflect on the deeply interconnected and dynamic relationships between people, language, land, and sea. This exhibition gathers artists engaged with land-based practices who are both native speakers as well as learners of Irish in a celebration of the rich history and vitality of Irish language, culture, and art. Participating artists include Kari Cahill, Ceara Conway, Liadin Cooke, Dorothy Cross, Miriam de Burca, Katie Holten, Siobhan Ni Dhuinnin, Meadhbh O’Connor, Eimear O’Keane, and Kathy Scott, The Trailblazery.
Free public parking is available in the Call Street Garage, next door to the museum. Funding for this exhibition and related public programming is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with Florida State University. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities. Additional support for the exhibition is provided by the FSU Council on Research + Creativity, Culture Ireland and an Emigrant Support Programme Heritage Grant through the Government of Ireland’s Global Irish Program.
