“Now you see them, now you don't” is a conversation on representations of older women and takes place in the context of artist Therese Nanigian’s exhibition ‘Trying to Behave’. This short discussion is primarily aimed at drawing out critical understandings and views of how older women are both imagined, portrayed and received, in the media and society. The discussion is chaired by Irish Times journalist Hilary Fannin and includes Dr. Brid Connolly (Lecturer, Adult and Community Education NUIM), artist Pauline Cummins and dance artist Rionach Ni Neill. Trying to behave is a solo show by artist Theresa Nanigian opening in The Lab, Dublin on 6 April, as part of the ‘just a bit extraordinary’ tour.
Admission Free but spaces are limited. Booking recommended.
