The project Room of New Media Presents: Irish Need No Apply Featuring the work of Irish art collective Grúpat. April 15 to May 15, 2010
Grúpat is an international arts collective based in Tallaght, County Dublin, Ireland. The collective works primarily in sound, with work ranging from strictly-notated compositions for classic ensembles to graphic scores, sonic sculptures, sound installations and interventions in both the public and private sphere.
Grúpat’s work ranges from love letters written by teenage Dubliners to the costumes of drag flaneur The Dowager Marchylove and presentations of previously unexhibited 17th century Irish alchemical vessels. This exhibition is curated by internationally renowned composer Jennifer Walshe.
“Irish Need Not Apply” is made possible with support of funding from the Arts Council of Ireland. Additional support: courtesy of the Lower East Side Tenement Museum.
