Lewis Glucksman Gallery | Enter Stage Left | 13 April – 9 July |  Preview and Panel discussion: Friday 7 April, 3.30pm

In advance of our official opening at 4pm on Thursday 13 April, the Glucksman invites you to a preview and panel discussion accompanying our new exhibition Enter Stage Left: The craft of theatre in art. This panel discussion will feature exhibiting artists Lothar Götz and Aoibheann Greenan, and Professor Manfred Schewe (Drama & Theatre, UCC), discussing the works and themes that inform Enter Stage Left.

The theatre is traditionally seen as a space of storytelling and illusion, where the spectator surrenders to the narrative. In Enter Stage Left, various dramatic devices such as sets, props, lighting and script, are utilised by Irish and international contemporary artists in order to undercut this sense of artifice, following the playwright Bertholt Brecht’s conviction that: “the illusion created by the theatre must be a partial one, so that it can always be recognised as illusion.”
