CURRENT EXHIBITION: 'Spaces of Sound and Radio Spaces'

Opening Reception: Friday 14th November at 5pm

O Keeffe’s latest exhibition Spaces of Sound and Radio Spaces explores the sonification of memories. The work stems from a research PhD, which examined, in part, how the soundscape of the 1950s and 1960s, including music and the radio, played a significant role in shaping Dublin teenagers’ social lives, as well as their experience of urban space.  Her current practice examines the natural and mediated construction of urban soundscapes both as an art practice and as an object of social theory.  Previous works deal with sound design and representations of sound as physical presences within architectural and exterior spaces as well as ‘historical spaces’ preserved through the radio and its early use.  All these sonic investigations have evolved to include imagined spaces, the sonic spaces of communities, as well as environmental ‘soundscapes’ shaped by top down approaches to urban design.  More Info

Gallery opening times -  11am-4pm.
Thursday to Saturday - Doors open at front of house.
Tuesday and Wednesday - Go first to central reception at the side of the building.

Exhibition runs until Sat 29th November.
