This year Culture Night at Nano Nagle Place will be both on site and online. Our fantastic museum will be open, including our wonderful ‘Changing Habits: 250 Years of Convent Life‘ exhibition.
On Culture Night, we will be launching an new exhibition of photographic portraits by Clare Keogh, exploring convent life in Nano Nagle Place today to complement “Changing Habits”.
In collaboration with Munster Literature Centre we will be sharing a video recording of Eileen Ní Chuilleanáin reading poems at Nano Nagle Place from her book, ‘The Mother House’, winner of the 2020 Irish Times Poetry Now Award.
We will be concluding our series of Heinrich Biber’s Mystery Sonatas in partnership with the East Cork Early Music Festival.
Violinist Caitriona O’Mahony will be accompanied by organist James Taylor to perform the Glorious Mysteries live on the night, while a virtual concert of the same will also be released via our website.
Cork Printmakers Inflorescence exhibition in The Print Gallery, Nano Nagle Place will also be on show. The exhibition explores themes of biodiversity, botany and ecology and takes inspiration from its location within the gardens of Nano Nagle Place as a historic site of contemplation and reflection.
