The Bystander Effect: Alison Lowry

Golden Thread Gallery are delighted to announce Alison Lowry’s upcoming exhibition in the Project Space, ‘The Bystander Effect’. The culmination of two years of research, The Bystander Effect examines the role that we, as a society, had in allowing an ‘architecture of containment’ to develop in Northern Ireland. Within the exhibition, the term ‘architecture of containment’ describes the physical infrastructure and systems used to incarcerate women and children in eighteenth and nineteenth century Ireland, including Industrial Schools, Children’s Homes, Mother and Baby Institutions and Magdalene Laundries.

Across and In-Between: Suzanne Lacy

Golden Thread Gallery is delighted to be premiering the installation of Suzanne Lacy’s Across and In-Between in the summer of 2021, presented in association with Ulster University. Co-commissioned and presented as a work-in-progress for the closing season of 14-18 NOW and the Belfast International Arts Festival; the project amplified the voices and experiences of border residents during Brexit negotiations through words, imagery, sound and performance, providing them an opportunity to reclaim the landscape around them.
