Visual arts project planned for Malin Head

A visual arts project set for Malin Head is one of seven art works this year funded in a new Arts Council initiative.

Latitude, by Marie Barrett, is a site-specific, visual arts project about identity in an era of shifting borders. The work will be presented as a film and a series of temporary sculptural forms at Malin Head and other cross-border areas where lookout posts are located.

The Arts Council has awarded more than €800,000 in total this year to the seven projects, as part of its “Making Great Art Work – Open Call” initiative.

“Collectively they represent the work of some of the most dynamic and interesting artists in Ireland,” Orlaith McBride, director of the Arts Council, (pictured) said of the selected work.
