You’re invited to the gallery after hours, as we explore the human pursuit of PERFECTION - a pursuit that is obsessive and deceptive, yet we chase if for fear of appearing imperfect. But is imperfection what sustains life and creates diversity and difference?

This Culture Night, we’re keeping the lights on to give you after-hours access to a world of impeccability soundtracked by live music, a battle of the bands, a theatre installation driven entirely by robots and a few surprise activities to help you prepare for a night of exploration.

In the Paccar Theatre, IN PURSUIT OF THE PERFECT PRESENCE  will feature a diverse panel of speakers: Alex Calder, Ciara Mahon, Autumn Brown and Kristina Kapanova; each bringing their own convictions and narratives social media, curating the perfect presence and its effect on our notions of perfection.

While in the Café, The Big Romance residents Island Times and Rousita Moulin will go head to head until the late hours, expect a unique collection of records spanning multiple genres and every corner of the globe. The Big Romance is a new vinyl bar in North Dublin serving a line-up of craft beer, cocktails and great music on an audiophile hi-fi soundsystem. 

Culture Night is an all-island celebration of arts, heritage and culture. Returning for its fourteenth year, Culture Night 2019 will take place on Fri Sep 20th, with hundreds of free events taking place in venues across Ireland.
