TULCA Festival of Visual Arts
November 5–21, 2021
Curated by Eoin Dara, the 19th edition of TULCA Festival of Visual Arts will take place this November in Galway under the title there’s nothing here but flesh and bone, there’s nothing more.
Contributors to this year’s programme are artists, filmmakers, writers and poets:
Sophia Al-Maria, Claire Biddles, Renèe Helèna Browne, Miriam de Búrca, CAConrad, Mariah Garnett, Lauren Gault, Patrick Hough, Adrien Howard & K Patrick, Jasmine Johnson, Vishal Jugdeo & vqueeram, Stanya Kahn, Theodore Kerr, Sekai Machache, Mira Mattar, The Many Headed Hydra, Mícheál McCann, Tonya McMullan, Harun Morrison, Isobel Neviazsky, Laura Ní Fhlaibhín, Nisha Ramayya, Amanda Rice and Jay G Ying.
This project is an aggregate of many unwieldy things including wet caresses, soft affection, immortal loves, necessary resistance, quiet rest, careful togetherness, boundless longing, abiding loss, honeyed scents, close correspondence, vocal exaltation, enduring solidarity, unexpected intimacies, ecstatic whispers and deep tenderness.
there’s nothing here but flesh and bone, there’s nothing more will unfold gently across different sites in the city including the An Post Gallery, Galway Arts Centre, Columban Hall, 126 Artist-Run Gallery, Nun’s Island Theatre, and Pálás Cinema.
In addition to the exhibition programme, several of the voices listed above will speak through letters and written correspondence which will be gathered together to form this year’s TULCA publication. There will also be a public programme of performances, workshops, screenings and talks taking place throughout the festival.
