12pm  Courage to Refuse
Introduced by Shane Cullen and John Buckley

Courage to Refuse takes its name from a humanitarian resistance group in Israel. In 2006 four artists Katie Barlow, John Buckley, David Crawforth and Shane Cullen were commissioned by Beaconsfield Art Projects to present a collaborative work under the umbrella of the Culture & Conflict Group (established Chicago 1998). Courage to Refuse, the DVD, was first presented at Emily Tsingou Gallery, London as part of the exhibition A Selected State.

2pm Guerillere Talks (47 mins) and Liberty’s Booty (24mins)
Introduced by and Vivienne Dick and  Treasa O Brien

Vivienne Dick’s films have been screened at cinemas, museums and film festivals internationally, including Tate Britain, Moma and the Whitney in New York, IMMA in Dublin, and the Edinburgh and Berlin Film Festivals.  Guerillere Talks and Liberty’s Booty are classics from New Yorks ‘No Wave’ Counterculture era. Treasa O’ Brien  has worked closely with Vivienne in curating and positioning Vivienne’s work in and outside Ireland.

4pm Sugar (82 mins)
Introduced by Paddy Jolley and Daniel Jewsbury

A woman comes out of a refrigerator, crawls across the floor, opens the heating vent and exhumes a corpse - her own.  From this crisis point, Sugar tracks a journey into the vertiginous realms of the mind.
Dissolving the parameters between reality and psychosis, dream and delusion, Sugar descends into a labyrinth created through the arresting performance of Samara Golden.
