Pre-Launch Performance: URGENCIES (2023)

16 Jan 23
Husk Bennett

As part of URGENCIES (2023), join us for a pre-launch performance with artist Husk Bennett.

For the performance, Husk is creating new work responding to the news headlines on 'Blue Monday', the 'most depressing day of the year'.

On Monday 16 January 2023, 1–4pm CCA is opening its doors during the install for visitors to see Husk making the new work. The work looks at the trivialisation of humanity by the media and capitalism and will remain on display throughout the exhibition.

URGENCIES (2023) will launch in full on Saturday 21 January 2023, 7–9pm.

Supported by the National Lottery through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Derry City & Strabane District Council.
