Additional Info

The venue does have wheelchair accessibility through its basement entrance.  Wheelchair accessible bathroom on site.  Several flights of stairs to O’Riada Hall therefore people with limited mobility/visual impairments should proceed with caution.


May the moon rise and the sun set is a new Glucksman off-site project by artist Richard Proffitt that transforms the interior spaces of the UCC Department of Music premises at St. Vincent’s Church into an uncanny, atmospherically immersive environment.

Curated by Chris Clarke, the installation exists as a place where the alternative spiritualities of counter-culture and sub-culture can develop and thrive. A transient midsummer offering, Proffitt’s installation will exist only in this edition, for this time in this space.

The installation will also host a series of accompanying events, including a spoken word performance by Richard Proffitt at 5.30pm, 14 June and a public conversation between Profitt and curator Chris Clarke at 1pm, 20 June.

Supported by an Arts Council Project Award and University College Cork.
