OUTing the Past Dublin 2021 - I am and CAMP Project

The National Museum of Ireland, National Gallery of Ireland and Kilmainham Gaol Museum are delighted to present OUTing the Past Dublin 2021.

OUTing the Past Dublin 2021 The International Festival of LGBTI+ History on 21st – 27th March 2021, bringing LGBTI+ history to a wider audience in an exciting, inspiring and thought-provoking programme of online events.

We are joined by Bríd Murphy and Darren Collins who will be taking over the Museum's social media accounts to discuss the CAMP Project and the art installation tilted, 'I am'.

The CAMP project is a series of collaborative works created by Artists working directly and in collaboration with a number of different Irish Traveller groups and communities. The project iwas inspired by Travellers’ Journey/Mincéir Misl’d , a year long temporary exhibition at the National Museum of Ireland-Country Life. The commissioned art works expand upon the themes explored through the exhibition. The awardees were Gianna Tomasso, Louise Wallace & Brid Murphy, students of Postgrad & Undergrad programmes at Limerick School of Art & Design.

The core of the project was to create a series of unique art works that convey the identity and lived experiences of some Irish Travellers. The project was specially commissioned by the National Museum of Ireland - Country Life with support from Limerick School of Art & Design, Limerick Institute of Technology. The CAMP project is curated by Aideen Barry Artist and LIT Lecturer.

‘I am’ is a video and sound installation that resulted from the collaboration between Darren Collins, a Traveller and LGBTQI+ activist, and visual artist and LSAD undergrad Bríd Murphy. This work aims to address the challenges that arise from identifying with multiple minority identities and the complex dynamic of identifying as LGBTQI+ and Traveller. The project is an ambitious multiscreen video work with sound that conveys the lived experience of Darren Collins presented in a complex multiscreen video installation that temporarily in-CAMP’s itself as an intervention in the museum architect. 

Please note this content will be presented throughout the day on Friday, 26th March. Follow the Museum's social account for updates - Facebook, Twitter, Instagram
