As millions across the globe, we at Pallas Projects/Studios have watched in horror at the onslaught against the Palestinian People and Territories being played out in front of us With modest determination we have decided to help raise funds for much needed humanitarian aid in the region: choosing Medicines San Frontiers and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East

Medicines Sans Frontiers, the Nobel Prize winning organisation, was founded in 1971, to speak out, to overcome borders to offer medical aid, and to deliver independent neutral and impartial aid internationally while going ‘where the patients are’ They are currently

working around the clock providing life saving vital medical care in Gaza in the face of immense challenges.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East began operation on 1st May 1950 and is unique in its commitment to one group of refugees and has contributed to the welfare of four generations of Palestinians. Its remit was to prevent conditions of starvation and distress, and encompasses many humanitarian services including primary health care, camp improvement and emergency response

Pallas Projects/Studios (founded 1996) is a not-for-profit artist-run organisation which operates artists studios and a year-round programme of artist-centred projects aimed at a wide audience

Our Pallas for Palestine Fundraising Exhibition is significant to us and we believe it would be of great interest to those with a passion for art and humanitarianism. 75% of funds will go directly to the aforementioned charities, with 25% covering materials and labour for the artists who so generously provided their works for this exhibition and fundraiser

We’d like to thank The Digital Hub for hosting us at The Bank.

The Digital Hub is located at the heart of the historic Liberties area of Dublin city centre It provides high-quality workspace and support to small businesses in the technology and creative sectors, social enterprises, artists and craftspeople.

They include the Smart D8 initiative, which seeks to improve the health and wellbeing of Dublin 8 citizens through collaborative demonstrator projects, Beta, a new international arts and technology festival, and The Liber8 Music Project, run with BIMM Institute

In addition to overseeing and running the campus and its activities, The Digital Hub is also responsible for the careful management of an extensive property portfolio, which includes many buildings representative of Dublin 8’s industrial history Eight of these buildings have already been converted into usable spaces with The Bank at The Digital Hub being the latest repurposed space; from a former Bank of Ireland to a versatile venue for the creative and business community Further information is available at: www thedigitalhub com or on X: @TheDigitalHub

Paul McCarthy

Photograph, pigment print

50 8 x 71 12 cm - 20 x 28 inches

SALE PRICE: €2000

"Paul McCarthy took this photo of Shane MacGowan in December 2003, to accompany an interview I did with him for the Sunday Times the following day. It’s a striking portrait, markedly different from the rascally images normally associated with the famously hedonistic singer. Instead, as he peers into Paul’s camera, MacGowan appears wistful, regretful, even slightly haunted.

On one level, there is a simple explanation for his demeanour. At the time, Shane was separated from his girlfriend (and later wife) Victoria Mary Clarke, speaking openly about missing her during our interview. The bleak setting can’t have added to his jollity: he was staying at a hotel in Howth, marooned in the middle of a deserted golf course in deepest winter. Though he was articulate and funny throughout our conversation, there was no mistaking MacGowan’s sense of longing for the woman who anchored him, a feeling reflected in the photograph.

But there’s something else at play too, speaking to the strain of sadness and loss that runs through MacGowan’s music In Shane’s melancholic gaze, Paul sees a personification of the Portuguese concept of Saudade, an indefinable feeling of loneliness and yearning associated with the country’s Fado music, but which also underpins so many of MacGowan’s greatest songs If it was a side of the late singer’s personality that could be heard in his songwriting, it was very rarely seen, but Paul’s elegiac portrait captures Shane perfectly Mick Heaney, 2024"
