24th – 26th August 2012
Belfast: Various venues

Household is an art event taking place in Belfast this weekend where artists will open up their homes and turn them into temporary exhibition spaces. A variety of activities will be taking placing including fine art, installation, performance, live music and discussions. The event is curated by Sighle Bhreathnach-Cashell, Eoin Dara, Ciara Hickey (current MA ACW student), Alissa Kleist and Kim McAleese. According to the organisers:

Household is an event that encourages audiences to re-negotiate the way in which they view and interact with art in the city. It offers an opportunity to experience new work in unrestricted non-commercial and non-institutionalised contexts by inviting members of the public into selected artists’ homes.

There is a large concentration of creative professionals living in South Belfast who have agreed to open up their households to showcase a variety of work – from fine art, performance and installation to live music, talks and discussions.

Household provides a supportive framework in which these practitioners curate their own homes, while simultaneously encouraging visitors to explore intimate domestic spaces in an accessible and exciting way.
