Kwaidan exhibition at the Ballinglen Museum of Art (Opening Night).

Kwaidan Exhibition – a touring exhibition by artists from Ireland and Japan – is coming to The Ballinglen Museum of Art, opening April 20th at 4pm – 7pm. The exhibition will be opened by Mr. Norio Maruyama, Ambassador of Japan to Ireland. Composer and performer Neil O Connor will present a short live performance entitled Yōkai – a sound installation inspired by the work of Lafcadio Hearn.

Kwaidan, by Patrick Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904), was first published in 1904. This exhibition features the works of 40 artists based in Ireland and Japan who have been inspired by these strange and ghostly tales. Their interpretations are presented through a diverse collection of contemporary fine art printmaking and photography.
