Culture Night: 'My Magnetic North' by Gary CoyleFriday 20 September 2019 | 7pm
What’s the fallout when you lose your magnetic north and you find yourself directionless?
Temple Bar Gallery + Studios Studio Artist Gary Coyle is a Dublin based Artist whose work embraces various media, including photography, drawing and performance. His previous productions At Sea (2009) and Death In Dun Laoighaire (2006) delved into his own personal reflections of his hometown. Sometimes funny, sometimes dark, his work traces the human narratives that connect us all.
Combining moving images, photography and spoken word, My Magnetic North explores one man’s observations of places, death, and the passing of time. Expertly weaving together stories and portraits that document the familiar, Coyle finds the beauty and resonance in the everyday with meditations that are at once intimate and poignantly universal.
As part of our Culture Night programme attend Gary Coyle’s My Magnetic North at 7pm on Friday 20 September. This audiovisual and spoken word performance explores the artist’s observations of places, death, and the passing of time. Booking Essential.

About Culture NightCulture Night is an annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. This year, it will take place on Friday 20th September 2019. On Culture Night, arts and cultural organisations and venues of all shapes and sizes, including the National Cultural Institutions, extend their opening hours to allow for increased access to the public. Special and unique events and workshops are specifically programmed at participating locations and everything is available free of charge.
Culture Night has grown from a relatively small scale cultural event staged only in Dublin in 2006 to the significant national cultural event it now is, with some 400,000 people visiting museums, galleries, historic houses, artists’ studios and cultural centres across the island. The initiative has captured both the public imagination and the enthusiasm of artists and cultural organisations.
