CURATOR’S TOUR WITH PAUL PIERONI
Nov 11, 2017 3:00pm - 4:30pm talk/event
Curator Paul Pieroni leads a tour of the exhibition Putti’s Pudding.
 
Pieroni will discuss key contexts and narratives within the exhibition, which centres on ‘Putti’s Pudding’, the collaborative artist’s book and ‘final project’ by American writer Cookie Mueller and her partner, Italian artist Vittorio Scarpati. Published in 1989, the same year both died from complications related to AIDS, it pairs drawings by Scarpati with writing by Mueller.
 
Reimagined as an exhibition at Studio Voltaire, Putti’s Pudding features forty–five original felt–tip pen on notepad drawings made by Scarpati when he lost the ability to speak, accompanying texts by Mueller, and a public programme of talks, readings, screenings and performance.
The event is free but due to high demand booking is recommended.

Oct 3, 2018 - Mar 31, 2019
Twenty years in the making, The Oscar Wilde Temple is a wholly immersive work of art and secular space honouring one of the earliest forebears of gay liberation whilst commemorating contemporary LGBTQ+ martyrs and those lost to the AIDS crisis.
 
The entirety of the gallery, a Victorian former chapel, will be transformed into a celebration of the Irish poet and author. Period wallpaper, stained glass windows, hangings and 19th century chandeliers and furniture adorn the space, evoking of the Aesthetic Movement.
 
Free and open to the public for six months – to all faiths and non–believers alike.
