NCAD Gallery (The National College of Art and Design Gallery)
WORK HEAD is an exhibition and publication of work produced by six recent graduates of the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. This event presents the imperatives and paradoxes of artworks produced by a group of peers. It holistically and stubbornly resists syntax or a proper mediating thematic. Each element embodies a persistent pestilence towards the idea of an exhibition. This manifests in the insistent appearance of any one work beside another, which is inevitably indifferent to it. A vicissitude of positions, strategies, methodologies and indeed ethics are fleshed out in this exhibition - but an economy is produced non-the-less, a base line: a group of peers whose work necessitates many heads.

LOOSE END STUDIO
Focus Theatre presents the World Premiere of
by Arnold Thomas Fanning
Griswold is a riveting new play full of black humour about the dysfunctional relationship between two men who both need and depend on each other to survive in a hostile environment. Two young Irish men are living illegally in a post 9/11 New York, their lives falling far short of the American Dream. Living in dire financial straits their mutual friendship comes under unbearable strain as they struggle to survive in the most ridiculous and dangerous of circumstances. Griswold is darkly comic and dramatic, an experience not to be missed.
Arnold Thomas Fanning is a new writer whose work articulates a fresh and dislocated Irish voice. More

Inductive Probability is a survey of work by Paul Gregg.
His work has occurred fleetingly, and been installed permanently in cities and towns throughout Ireland, Europe and the U.S. This survey cannot retrieve the artist's original installations. Instead, it represents his practice through tests, documentation, and technically unsparing assemblies.
For instance, Inductive Probability includes a decommissioned rocket, photographs lit by explosions from magnesium mortar charges, and a model for a glass planet Earth. The exhibition covers twenty years' worth of Paul Gregg's perennially sited machines. More

The Butler Gallery is delighted to present outawack, an exhibition by the USA based Irish artist, Helen O'Leary.
Helen O'Leary is a highly inventive artist who has been exhibiting her work for over twenty years. This is her first exhibition in Ireland since 2006. O'Leary's new work delves into her own history as a painter, with both subject matter and raw material rooted in the ruins and failures of her studio. By taking apart canvases, wooden stretchers, panels and frames she turns the conventions of painting literally inside out. Humorous and enigmatic, these fragments that make a new whole, bare their histories as well-worn objects while at the same time are infused with newfound energy and dynamism. More
