Living Canvas: Digital Art at Wilton Park
From November 28th through January 31st, visit Wilton Park on Dublin's Grand Canal for a special screening of seven of our poetry films, plus many more incredible film offerings.
IPUT's Winter Programme, "Focus on the Grand Canal and its Literary Heritage," brings together literature, art, and performance in film screenings open to all. IPUT's ongoing cultural initiative establishes new ways of exhibiting artworks in large-scale outdoor installations in Dublin’s city center. This winter's films include pieces by artists Sofia Crespo and Feileacan McCormick, Elaine Hoey, Padraig Cunningham, and others.
Our contribution to this event is Poetry on Film, our second set of films to be screened at Wilton Park. Visit to experience seven films directed by Matthew Thompson, from series produced with Poetry Ireland, IMMA, Druid, and Poet in the City:
