5m2 Art Project this weekend ONLY

DELLA writes to let us know about an interesting creative event taking place for two days only this Saturday and Sunday (5th & 6th June).

'5m2' is a week-end of exhibitions and performances which will run from 12:00 until late, near CHRIST CHURCH CATHEDRAL in DUBLIN city centre. It's described as a multimedia event of art, music and exhibitions which will encompass approximately fifty artists including musicians from different countries and backgrounds, painters, photographers, writers, actors, poets, comedians, filmakers and dancers. There will also be a space for screening short films.

The title of the project comes from the fact that both visual artists and performers have each been allocated a space of 5 square metres to do their 'thang'.

Keep an eye out for ENDA CAVANAGH who'll be exhibiting over the weekend. Enda just launched his new venture with a website of architectural photography and landscapes. In a couple of weeks it'll be possible to securely-buy original framed prints on-line at I saw in the summer-solstice dawn with Enda, FIDELMA, KATEANN and CONOR down at the SPENCER TUNICK photo shoot at RINGSEND a few weeks back - RONAN modelled, we were the back-stage crew.

5m2 is organized by three Italian artists living in Dublin: ALBERTO GARIGLIO, FRANCESCA LaMORGIA, and SARA RANIERI.

Expect a day sprinkled with all sorts of music and spontaneous performances - why not mosey along and show your support for these newcomers.

LA CATEDRAL STUDIOS are in the BACK LOFT on ST. AUGUSTINE STREET which is off THOMAS STREET near Christ Church Cathedral. It could be a perfect opportunity to check out PIEDESCALSO cafe while you're at it!
