The Cork Quarter Block Party festival’s second round of acts has just been announced, following on from their announcements before the Xmas break.
Also added to the bill – the return of zero-commitment choir The Sing Along Social, Cork hip-hop legend Stevie G’s Vinyl Love night, and Bum Notes Dragaoke.
The live art portion sees the addition of absurdist third-wave feminist performance piece SNAKE TALK, and a DJ set/performance in The Rave Space, assembled by UK performance artist Will Dickie, while the street art/public engagement bill is added to with Alternative Routes, a sculptural installation on Coleman’s Lane; Volxkuche, a community dinner party, and circus artist Darragh McLoughlin’s live performance in the now-former Dunnes’ Stores shopping centre, exploring the space and with it themes of the current property and rental crises.
All happening February 3rd-5th on North and South Main Streets, Cork.
An ongoing project (started by artist Levee) at an underpass connecting the 1 train to the L at 14th street and 6th Avenue in New York city.
Subway Therapy, where people are invited to add their own messages of positivity and hope, actually predates the Trump election/ alt-rightpocalypse but has become especially relevant since.
