Placing Home: Hidden Stories
WHEN & WHERE
O’Donoghue Centre, NUI Galway 15–28 July, 11am–6pm Late opening to 8pm Thursday–Saturday. Free
Sarah Hickson is a photographer whose practice explores the relationship between people and place, often focusing on the role of the arts from a wider social or humanitarian perspective. Much of her recent work explores themes of migration, displacement and transition. Her GIAF 2018 show Sounds Unseen captured life in the ‘Jungle’ refugee camp in Calais. The Festival has commissioned Hickson to work with people who have lived or are living in direct provision in Galway. This project commences this summer with Hickson’s work in progress exhibited here. The results of the project will be fully realised with an exhibition premiering during GIAF 2020.

Following a collaborative residency with researchers from the Centre of Astronomy, NUI Galway, Brenan, Cassidy, Manifold and O’Brien present new work which interrogates contemporary approaches to astronomical research in collaboration with four scientists in NUI Galway. This exhibition is part of the Royal Astronomical Society’s 2020 bicentennial celebrations [RAS 200]. This is the only project in Ireland to join four others from the UK that have received RAS 200 Awards to support astronomy and geophysics projects. July 2019 also marks the 50th anniversary of the first person to walk on the moon. Curated by Maeve Mulrennan and Prof. Andrew Shearer.
