James Ó hAodha (IE), Pilvi Takala (FI).

The opening will be preceded by an artist talk with Rachel Maclean at 5pm, presented in partnership with the MA in Visual Arts Practices, IADT.

The exhibition will be officially launched by Cliodhna Shaffrey, Visual Arts Advisor with the Arts Council.

The show features works by International artists Oliver Laric, Rachel Maclean, Brenna Murphy, and Pilvi Takala; with newly commissioned interventions by Dublin-based artists Alan Butler, Mark Durkan and Eilis McDonald; and ephemeral events by Mary-Jo Gilligan and James Ó hAodha.

Playing with precarity, performance, and the virtual as real, Tonight, you can call me Trish invites artists and viewers to move through multiple states of being. This is an exhibition created through plural agencies at work; artists are artists, diviners, designers, mediators; audience is viewer, believer, conspirator, user; curator is conceptualist, choreographer, strategist, inputter. With all the bluster of a one-night stand, Trish rides on the energy of art's own glossy promise, in a mashed-up, smashed-up, post-decorative dissolution of illusion.

Tonight, you can call me Trish has been produced with kind support from Irish Art Courier and Kunstverein Düsseldorf.

The LAB Gallery is supported by Dublin City Council and the Arts Council.
