Spicebag, 1eurofiddy and more collaborate on new exhibition ‘The Marian Year’

Featuring visual art by Spicebag, Carl Hickey, 1eurofiddy and creative writing by Republic of Shame author Caelainn Hogan.

Can seeing the past in a new way help to fix the future?

Or so goes the question posed by the new exhibition ‘The Marian Year’ taking place this Friday 5 August at Pallas Projects in Dublin 8.

The Marian Year is a collection of photography, visual art and creative writing musing on changing values in modern Ireland and fading tradition in the face of a neoliberal future and the pain of the past.”

The exhibition was conceived with the intention of recontextualising important symbols and relics from Ireland’s history as life in the present day grows increasingly precarious.

The show features a variety of mediums, including photography by 1eurofiddy , visual art by Spicebag and artwork by painter Carl Hickey. The exhibition will also feature written work by Caelainn Hogan, author of Republic of Shame – an explosive in-depth book about the Magdalene Laundries and deep-rooted Catholicism in Irish culture.

Attending aesthetes can find the show at Pallas Projects in Dublin 8 from 14.00-20.00 this Friday, where Hogan will perform a reading of her work at 18.00. Guests can bring their own booze as the exhibition will be followed by an after party to be later announced.
