FGU Out South Central

The RFR pilot project will be realised in collaboration with Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride. This extensive phase sees Hannah Tiernan and Brendan Fox working with the Fatima Groups United - Out South Central LGBT+ group based in Dublin 8. Over the course of six weeks, they will coordinate a series of site visits, talks, and workshops to inform participants on local queer history and to generate artistic responses. To accompany the local queer history tours and talks, RFR sees the design and facilitation of creative workshops that enable participants to fully engage and respond to these histories as well as their own expressions of identity. The workshops will apply methods designed for the Games for Artists and Non-Artists programme. 

These responses will then be exhibited at The Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA), Dublin in response to IMMA's current exhibition, 'The Narrow Gate of the Here-and-Now: Queer Embodiment' and as part of IMMA's contribution to the 'Outing The Past Festival' 2022. Taking place in IMMA’s Project Space, an active exhibition will showcase some of the work created with Fatima Groups United (Out South Central LGBTQ+ group). The exhibition will evolve further through our workshops and interactions with the public, artists, and performers.
