LCGA are delighted to facilitate tours of Aideen Barry's exhibition By Slight Ligaments on Thursday 16th December 2021. This is to coincide with and celebrate the opening of the exhibition, which will run at the Gallery until 13th February 2022.

Due to COVID 19 restrictions, LCGA can only accommodate a maximum of 10 persons in the Gallery at one time.

A slot (45 mins) can be booked by completing the form above. Tours can be booked at the following times: 2pm, 3pm, 4pm and 5pm. Artist Aideen Barry, Curator Sarah Searson, and LCGA Director/Curator Úna Mc Carthy will be in attendance to lead groups around the exhibition, and answer any questions.


By Slight Ligaments is Aideen Barry's most ambitious exhibition to date and the culmination of several years’ work. It includes film, sound, drawing, digital animation and several specially commissioned collaborations with artists, designers and craft workers. The exhibition is curated by Sarah Searson, one of Irelands leading independent curators. Barry’s approach has been to think about the various spaces in LCGA as a body of nervous systems. The title of the exhibition By Slight Ligaments comes from Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein, emphasising the exhibition as a body of parts, stitched together through the collective talents of Barry and her many extraordinary collaborators. Included are writer Sinéad Gleeson; harpist, Aisling Lyons; composers and musicians, Fiona Sheil, Stephen Shannon and Cathal Murphy; and Canadian Inuit performer RIIT ᕇᑦ. Barry has also commissioned work from leading designers, Margaret O’ Connor, Tropical Popical and master carpenter, Charles Perpoil.
