Events – Belfast


27 July, 7pm

Dance history is at the heart of Panayiotou’s lecture-performance Dying on Stage, incorporating a wide range of readings, video clips and archival material, and an interlude by dancer Jean Capeille addressing the concept of “tragic irony”.

Inspired by Rudolf Nureyev’s lavish 1991 staging of the classical ballet La Bayadère, choreographed while his health was critically deteriorating, Dying on Stage is a romantic meditation on the impossible theatrical representation of death. Exploring various literal, metaphorical, symbolic deaths, and playing dead on stage, Panayiotou examines the vicious relationship between the spectator, the actor, and the characters trapped in the action.

30 June to 24 September

Side Steps These Ferried Measures Rise is the first major institutional exhibition by Belfast based artist Bill Saunders, who works primarily in sculpture. In this exhibition, Saunders considers the very site where artwork is made — the profound “thinking space” that is the studio — as a source of inspiration for his work.

30 June to 8 October

A Dream and an Argument represents a major new body of work by Edinburgh-born, Belfast based artist Dougal McKenzie. It brings together key elements of McKenzie’s practice: an interest in history and storytelling through images, and an investigation into whether it is possible to represent these as ‘memory’ in painting.

A Dream and an Argument | Dougal McKenzie at ...





30 June to 19 August

In the years following the death of Hungarian artist Emese Kudász, her son Gábor Arion Kudász catalogued her entire estate and photographed it to secure her fast-fading trace in time, so as to establish a guide to the workings of memory. The method of the photographic research disrupted the order of things she had created, the context that surrounded her and was distinctively her own. Through these cracks hidden aspects of her personality emerged, together with a previously unrealized coherence among her objects; it is no longer possible to tell whether these had existed before or were only the result of the intervention.

Whatever has been in the ground for a long time, say archaeologists, has probably found its best place there. What they mean is that while the excavation may promote knowledge, an important part of the context preserved under the layer of ground is lost when disrupted. The central conflict Kudász faces in his Memorabilia is that on one hand excavation and the documentation of the past serve understanding, on the other hand they accelerate the process of disintegration.

Memorabilia | Gábor Arion Kudász at Belfast Exposed


7 July to 4 August
Opening Preview: 6 July, 6-9pm with a performance by Eoghan Ryan at 7.30pm

Catalyst Arts is delighted to present VIEWING COPY, an exhibition of work by artists Eoghan Ryan and Vivienne Dick alongside The Radical Film Archive and a newly commissioned text by Maeve Connolly.

This project is driven by an exploration into the hierarchical economy and circulation of video in artist moving image practice, directly referencing the particular and peculiar status of the ‘Viewing Copy’ within the market of contemporary art and its continued covert resistance to contemporary capitalism. The project considers the physicality of the screen and materiality of video formats as a framing device for autobiographical content, brought into focus as a measure and mediation of subjectivity, with the potential for generating alternative representations and a shared cultural, collective memory.
