To mark the closing of The Narrow Gate of the Here-and-Now: Queer Embodiment, Eimear Walshe will read from recent texts in the intimate setting of IMMA’s Garden Galleries.

Incisive, personal, and charged, Walshe’s work reflects on how social history resonates in the sexual mores of the present time. Writing features prominently in Walshe’s practice, whether through video, publishing or performances, this event offers a unique opportunity to hear some of this work read aloud by the artist.

Texts featured include The Piper’s Grip (2021), commissioned by Mirror Lamp Press, and FUCK BOX (2020) commissioned by TULCA, Galway. Walshe’s readings will be accompanied by musicians Seamas Hyland and Djackulate.

Limited tickets available, booking essential.

Please note that the material in this event contains adult themes, sexual references and mention of Garda violence.
