Sirius Arts Centre
Richard Mosse is an Irish artist who has already achieved considerable attention for his restrained and highly aestheticized views of sites associated with violence and fear.
Infra offers a fevered inflation of the traditional reportage document, underlining the growing tension between art, fiction and photojournalism. Mosse initiates a dialogue with photography that begins as an intoxicating mediation on a broken genre, but ends as a haunting elegy for a vividly beautiful land touched by unspeakable tragedy. Hours M-F 11AM - 1pm & 2pm - 5pm/S&S 2pm - 5pm/
Presented in Partnership with Jack Shainman Gallery and in partnership with Open Eye Gallery Liverpool, Kunstlerhaus Bethanien Berlin and Le Centre Culturel Irelandais Paris. More

Playing a cocktail of well known songs from The Democratic Republic of Congo plus their own compositions, their concerts will usually start with some gently swaying traditional Congolese Rumba made popular by legendary bands like Luambo Franco's TPOK Jazz & Ochestre Matimilla, the signature sound of Kinshasa in the late 70s. Once the audience have warmed up, the band will turn the heat up further and after a few gear changes The Lace are in overdrive, playing the latest Kinois Soukous dance music, with fast, interweaving rhythmic guitars and some sublime solos they will take the audience with them, without fail, for a true Congolese Soukous dance workout.
