Off-site Event by Cliona Harmey
Thursday, June 22, 2017, 6pm
Robert Emmet Theatre, The Arts Building, Trinity College Dublin
For this project, Cliona Harmey has chosen to screen two moving image works which function as a springboard for a visual response to ideas of narrative, media history, infrastructure, verticality and technology.
A Glimpse of Common Territory by artist and film-maker Michelle Deignan will be shown, followed by a rare 16 mm screening of Side/Walk/Shuttle, a seminal work by American experimental film-maker Ernie Gehr.
Admission is free but booking is essential.
