Talamh agus Teanga: Land and Language in Contemporary Irish Art

January 25th to May 18th, 2024


Talamh agus Teanga engages the Irish language in contemporary creative practice to reflect on our interconnected worlds. Through visual art, dance, film and performance, these Irish artists ground their work in the ethos of fite fuaite, the Irish phrase meaning, “interwoven or inextricably connected.” Their artistic practices reflect on the deeply interconnected and dynamic relationships between people, language, land, and sea. This exhibition gathers artists engaged with land-based practices who are both native speakers as well as learners of Irish in a celebration of the rich history and vitality of Irish language, culture, and art.

This exhibition is supported by the Florida Humanities Council, the Florida Department of State, the FSU Council on Research + Creativity, Culture Ireland and an Emigrant Support Programme Heritage Grant through the Government of Ireland’s Global Irish Program.
