Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts in Ireland, is delighted to announce that their proposal for a collaborative arts showcase to be held in Chicago during 2016 has been successful in the Culture Ireland International Culture Programme for 2016. Culture Ireland invited proposals from artists and presenters interested in participating in the 2016 International Culture Programme of the Government's to mark the centenary of 1916.

Organised by Create, with the support of Culture Ireland, (Re)Public will showcase the work of seven leading socially engaged Irish artists in different artforms. Create will bring the showcase to the Hyde Park Arts Centre, Chicago in autumn 2016. The exhibition, as well as a series of themed events, will engage with a number of socio-political themes, reflecting the complexity of 21st century Ireland and the richness of collaborative arts practice in Ireland today.

The artists taking part are: Seamus Nolan (Visual Arts) Dylan Tighe (Theatre/ Music) Marie Barrett/ North 55 (Visual Arts) Philippa Donnellan / Cois Ceim (Dance) Sean Taylor and Mikael Fernström / Softday (Sound Art) with curator/artist Megs Morley (Film/Visual Arts).

Hyde Park Arts Center in Chicago is a leading American cultural institution, and an ideal venue to demonstrate the place of Irish artists in a broader global collaborative arts context. Hyde Park Art Center welcomes 45,000 people annually and is an outstanding example of how an institution can develop its city’s artists while remaining accessible and relevant to its immediate community.
