2nd June – 23rd June.  Preview Thursday 2nd June, 7pm-10pm

This art and architecture crossover exhibition explores the city of the past, present and future.  Local Artists explore the vitality, heritage and character of old and new Belfast. What is the city becoming? Are we protecting heritage adequately? And international artist wouder if cities are just becoming clones of one another, creating an endless high street existence…

There will be a series of events/talks/debates running throughout the duration of the exhibition to keep things interesting and hopefully answering some of the above questions. Details of which can be found below

Sharone Lifschitzs talk will centre on actions and projects created in cities such as London, Munich, Belfast and Tel Aviv-Jaffa. Lifschitz’s work unfolds as a progression of actions and interactions for which she is both choreographer and participant and through which the city becomes a ground for an encounter and the encounter becomes a tool for a reading of the city and creating interventions in its urban fabric. The talk traces several projects both completed and in progress.
