Project Arts Centre, Cinenova, and aemi present: Long time we’ve been working / Tamall fada atá muid ag obair

Published date: 06 Sep 2023

Long time we’ve been working / Tamall fada atá muid ag obair is a new exhibition and public programme organised in partnership with Cinenova, a volunteer-run organisation preserving and distributing the work of feminist film and video makers, and aemi, a Dublin-based initiative that supports and regularly exhibits moving image works by artists and experimental filmmakers.

The programme includes films from Cinenova’s project The Work We Share – newly digitised films from the Cinenova collection addressing representations of gender, race, sexuality, health and community – and contemporary works from Ireland and beyond that have a resonance or rhyme with the historical works. The exhibition and public programme will feature works by Jay Bernard, Renee Helena Browne, Jacqui Duckworth, L. Franklin Gilliam, Onyeka Igwe, Rene Matic, Adriana Monti, Francis O’Mahony, Alice Rekab, S. Pearl Sharp, Sistren Theatre Collective, and Soft Fiction Projects within an exhibition space designed by Christopher McMullan.
