ABOUT PROCESSIONS 2018

Thousands of women and girls from across the UK will walk together in public processions on Sunday 10 June, forming a living portrait of women in the 21st century and a visual expression of equality, strength and cultural representation. PROCESSIONS celebrates the fight for suffrage and expresses what it means to be a woman today.

Text and textiles are at the heart of the project. In the months leading up to the processions, the public are taking part in a nationwide creative programme of banner-making. In a series of special commissions, 100 artists are working with community groups across the country to deliver expressive banners and iconic artworks that echo the artistic practices of the women’s suffrage campaign and yet are grounded in women’s experience today. PROCESSIONS also uses the history of female suffrage to inspire women to vote and stand for office.

Free Bus departing from the GTG to the Millennium Court Arts Centre for the opening of Antenna: Sinead McKeever

A Free Bus will run between Belfast and Portadown on the evening of the opening – 2nd February 7pm – 9pm. Leaves Belfast from Golden Thread Gallery at 6.45pm. Returns from Portadown at 9pm.

McKeever’s practice is process led. She exploits the possibilities of found industrial and domestic materials, examining the balance between materiality, form and decorative surfaces.  McKeever’s new work inhabits and investigates boundaries, edges and awkward spaces, her sculptural objects are often found in corners or unexpected places such as ceilings, windows and corners. The play of light and shadow are important to the artist, her pieces creating strips of light through shadow and reflection, often edged with colour, these playful bands promote investigation of spatial occupation and application, creating presence.
