To celebrate visual artist Naomi Sex’s solo exhibition All This Surface and Silence at the Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA), a guided tour is taking place on Saturday the 2nd of December at 11.30am. This is a collaborative, cross-disciplinary one off event between the artist and architectural, local historian and tour guide Arran Henderson of Dublin Decoded tours.
The event will consist of a walk around Dublin’s South Georgian Quarter in the guise of a traditional walking tour and will feature a number of sites, images and ideas, some of which may directly or tangentially relate to, put into context or otherwise resonate with the themes and ideas contained in the show at the RHA.
The walk will include period houses (particularly those which touch on aspects of performance or display) as well as the exterior of a Church and the interior of the National Gallery, including a brief visit to a small selection of artworks, and a short stop inside a library.
The tour will be led by Arran Henderson and will be interspersed or counterpointed with observations from the artist and audience, and will conclude at the RHA gallery with a visit to the exhibition and a special performance of Car Dealing – Making Art, featuring actress Darina Gallagher.
Tickets for the walking tour are free and can be reserved by registering above. Places are limited, so early booking is recommended. All ages are welcome on this tour, although content will be aimed at an adult audience.
