Megs Morley Biography

Megs Morley is an independent curator and moving image artist whose projects primarily deal with how social and political situations are represented in art, and with strategies of artistic resistance that include self-organisation, intervention and collectivism. Most recently she was the Curator in Residence for Galway City (2014) where she developed a year-long public research programme ‘The Para Institution’, (www.parainstitution.ie) and in 2015 she curated the Galway Plastik Festival of artists moving image, entitled ‘A State within a State’ featuring Harun Farocki, Duncan Campbell, The Museum of Non-Participation, Lawrence Abu Hamden, Rabih Mroué and many more.

Morley was the curator of ‘After the Fall’; the 2011 Tulca Contemporary Art Festival where she developed a city-wide international exhibition and programme including over 40 national and international artists spanning over 8 exhibition venues, new commissions, residencies, talks, live events, screenings, performances and professional workshops that queried artists responses to the overlapping contexts of economic collapse and social and political upheaval, by interrogating received forms of knowledge, imagery and power and by challenging the politics of representation, commemoration, historiography, narrative construction, identity and memory formation in a world after the fall.

In 2012 Morley developed “Lines of Sight” – an exhibition of 12 moving image artists including Artur Zmijewski, Yael Bartana, Roee Rosen, and Avi Mograbi – during a residency in the Israeli Digital Art Centre’s Digital Moving Image Archive in Tel Aviv, Israel, for EVA International 2012 curated by Annie Fletcher. ‘Lines of Sight’ focused on artists that utilise the documentary form, in an attempt to expose the relationship between the camera’s role in mediating social conflict, political situations, traumatic memory, history and knowledge.

Previously, Megs worked as public arts officer for Galway City Council (2008-2010) where she commissioned a series of significant multi-disciplinary and participatory public art projects across Galway City. In addition she is the curator of the Artist-led Archive, a project documenting over 80 Irish artist-initiatives from the 70s’ to the present (www.theartistledarchive.com) and is an advisor to the 126 Gallery, and to the National Visual Arts Library in Dublin. She lectures on the Curatorial module in the Huston School of Film & Digital Media NUIG and is curating the first solo exhibition in Ireland of the US artist Amie Siegel in TBG&S in 2016.

Yeats 2015 is Launched

December 4, 2014 in Events from the Arts Sector, Uncategorized

 Yeats2015 Launches with an Open Invitation to Every Citizen in Ireland to Celebrate One of Our National Cultural Icons

Funded by the Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht as part of the Decade of Commemorations; Yeats2015 offers a unique opportunity to celebrate Ireland, through the prism of one of its most renowned literary icons.  A year long programme of cultural and artistic events is planned to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Irish Nobel prize-winning poet William Butler Yeats. 

This is the first time that Ireland will honour any one individual in this way.  

An internationally renowned poet and playwright,  Yeats was cited by the Nobel Academy in 1923, as having  ‘given expression to the spirit of a whole nation.’ He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in December 1923, the first Irish man to do so.  His love of Ireland and of places in Ireland that were of particular inspiration to him such as Sligo, Galway and Dublin will also be celebrated as part of the programme.

 Ahead of the launch, Minister Heather Humphreys said:

“Yeats2015 promises to be a very exciting and engaging year long programme of events to celebrate the life and work of WB Yeats.  As Ireland’s first winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, and through his role in the Literary Revival and the founding of the Abbey Theatre, Yeats has left a rich legacy, which has had a huge impact both in Ireland and internationally.

“Yeats2015, with its keen focus on education and engagement, will allow us the opportunity to reflect on the Ireland of 100 years ago and reflect on the period surrounding the formation of our nation state.  Yeats was a provocative social commentator and I am looking forward to hearing from members of the public in the coming months on how they want to commemorate this major event in our history.

“I hope the Yeats celebrations will encourage people to rediscover his great work and to reflect on this fascinating period in our history.”

Yeats was a key figure in Irish life and history – engaged, committed, and curious – and the Yeats2015 programme will be both about celebrating his achievement and creating new art and memorable experiences in that passionate and creative tradition.  Yeats2015 is a journey, physical and imaginative, in which all the varied events and places are linked.

The Yeats2015 programme will showcase the creative and cultural vibrancy of contemporary Ireland.   The year-long celebrations will include Yeats Day (June 13th) and feature exhibitions, performances, festivals and events across all the artforms throughout the island of Ireland.

Speaking at the launch, Chair of Yeats2015 Senator Susan O’ Keeffe said,

Every facet of Irish society is being invited to participate in this year long celebration.   Already there has been a considerable response.  Our National Cultural Institutions, including the National Library, National Gallery and The Abbey Theatre are all programming Yeats themed exhibitions and events in 2015. “

O’Keeffe concluded by issuing the following invitation: 

Any organisation holding a Yeats themed event in 2015 is also being invited to submit their event through www.Yeats2015.com which is also being launched today.  The website contains information on existing and new events taking place next year and will make it easy for people at home and aboard to experience Yeats in 2015.”

Key programme highlights include a worldwide celebration of Yeats Day on June 13th, an exhibition of John Yeats paintings at the National Gallery, a celebratory music and poetry weekend of events at the National Concert Hall, an expanded Yeats Summer School in Sligo, theatre and dance performances at national arts festivals and widespread literary and poetry events throughout the year.  The National Library will host a series of events at its award-winning exhibition, the Life and Works of William Butler Yeats, as will the Galway City Museum and The Model in Sligo.

International programme elements will include a series of events in London, including a poetry event at the British Library in London, exhibitions at Ireland’s embassy network and at international library locations facilitated by the Department of Foreign Affairs.  Tourism Ireland will also run an international campaign to increase awareness of Ireland’s great literary heritage, the places that inspired Yeats and in Ireland’s national Yeats 2015 celebration.
