A note from the Artistic Director
Our November begins with the 2014 Cork Film Festival running from the 7th until the 16th. We have collaborated in a very special way this year and are delighted to present a one day exhibition of paintings by Brain Maguire to amplify the screening of the very important documentary BLOOD RISING as part of the festival. Maguire will partake in a post screening Q&A hosted by RTE reporter Flor MacCarthy on the nature of his work, which deals with the femicide in Mexico. The exhibition will be open for public viewing from 5pm – 6pm on November 16th. This is the first time the suite of paintings will be shown in Cork.
We have three very special live music concerts this month, Mercury Prize nominated Folk singer SAM LEE on Friday 28th brings his own arrangements and performances of traditional songs he collected from Irish Traveller, Scottish Traveller and English Gypsey communities in Britain and Ireland. STUFF is the new album by ELEANOR MCEVOY who visits us for the first time Saturday 29th. The third lunchtime performance in the QUARTET! concert series by THE VANBRUGH QUARTET promises to be an exquisite afternoon.
Wildlife cameraman GORDON BUCHANAN hosts an evening of exciting personal recollections Thursday 20th. NIGHTCRAWLER and OUT OF HERE are a couple highlights from our November cinema programme screening the final week of the month.
JUST A SHADE is the third in the CALLING UP THE VANGARD exhibition series by our guest curator John P Quinlan. A solo exhibition of new work by Eddie Kennedy painted during a residency in Ballinglen Arts Foundation recently.
