On Friday 16th July Temple Bar Gallery & Studios reopens with a new exhibition, Bran New Brains by Sonia Shiel. I quite like the concept of turning the process of creating the final work into a performance in itself. Could be interesting.
Friday also sees the opening of the already-acclaimed new film Inception. Just be careful not to read too much about it - this is a film that could be ruined by spoilers.
On the subject of films, on Sunday 25th July Filmbase will present the winning short films from this year's Galway Film Fleadh in the Light House Cinema in Smithfield. The event is called 'Best of the West'. If you think short films are dull and arty, have a look at the description of Action Evader. Nice!
