Emma Talbot: Exhibition Events

14 April 2021

We're delighted to share details of our programme of exhibition events to coincide with and complement Emma Talbot's exhibition Ghost Calls, taking place both online and at DCA.

For one weekend every month during the run of the exhibition, starting on Fri 30 April, we will stage an online screening of Emma Talbot's new animated film Keening Songs on DCA's Vimeo channel. Between 11:00 on a Friday morning until 18:00 on a Sunday evening in April, May, June, July and August, audiences can watch from home a short interview with Talbot introducing her practice and this new body of work at DCA, followed by a screening of Keening Songs

On Thu 27 May we will be celebrating the publication of Ghost Callsa new book published as part the exhibition. It contains newly commissioned writing by Helen Charman and So Mayer, as well as a conversation between the artist and DCA’s Head of Exhibitions, Eoin Dara.

Join us online via zoom to celebrate the launch of the book with an evening of conversation, readings and screenings hosted by Eoin Dara. The evening will include a screening of Talbot's newest animation work, a reading by Charman of her new poem Worm-Talk, and a reading by Mayer of their new experimental text Listen to the State of Us, followed by a wider conversation and Q&A. 

On Thu 24 June we will host an online conversation between Emma Talbot and Anne Tallentire, two artists who have known each other and respected one another’s work for over a decade.

Emma’s new body of work at DCA will be the starting point of a conversation around practice, research, art and exhibition making. The evening will be hosted by DCA’s Head of Exhibitions, Eoin Dara, and there will be an opportunity to ask both artists questions following their conversation together.

In July, we will host the latest online session of DCA's reading group, In the Evening There is Feeling.

Connecting to Emma Talbot’s work in the gallery exploring future landscapes after a cataclysmic world event, this session will introduce and discuss some excerpts from Nan Shepherd's book The Living Mountain, offering up an extraordinary account of walking through and living with the Cairngorm mountains in Scotland.

Finally, on Thu 5 August Eoin Dara will lead a Curator's Tour in the gallery where he’ll talk about working with Emma Talbot over the last two years to develop Ghost Calls.
