Project Arts Centre announces The Wild, as part of Project 50, a season of work celebrating 50 years of Project Arts Centre.

The Wild is a celebration of the networks and communities, friends and co-conspirators, memories and visions of Project Arts Centre by the creatives and artists at the heart of our organisation.

It is a collaborative group show that will change, evolve and develop over time, as practices and art forms collide, collaborate, push and pull together and apart. Experiences and artworks will accumulate, and the show will shape-shift, grow and shrink at will.

The Wild’s varied, cumulative and unpredictable form alludes to the Anthropocenic idea of "the wild" as something that resides within us, that we are a part of, within the earth system, as opposed to something that happens outside the human experience of the world, the great wilderness out there beyond us.

A chaotic and episodic happening, The Wild has work bursting in and out of the gallery space, with ritualistic performances, accumulations, twice weekly performative readings and short-term residencies regularly punctuating the exhibition. The physical shape of the show also changes over the course of its duration.

Featuring the work of no less than 15 artists, The Wild brings together visual artists, theatre makers, dramaturges, musicians, writers, filmmakers, playwrights, dancers, broadcasters and lighting designers, creating temporary collaborations between individual practices and art forms, showcasing the depth and breadth of Project’s relationship with the creative community over the last 50 years. 

The Wild features the work of Eleanor Duffin, Dylan Coburn Gray, Megan Kennedy, Áine Stapleton, Sarah Jane Shiels, Seamus Nolan, Liv O’Donoghue, Barbara Knezevic, Oisín Byrne, Oonagh Kearney, Sarah Pierce and Vaari Claffey, Caoimhín O’Raghallaigh, Dylan Haskins and Bisi Adigun.
