Jesse Jones threw a spotlight on feminism and women’s issues with her work Tremble Tremble when she represented Ireland at the 57th Venice Biennale / La Biennale di Venezia, in 2017. Jesse Jones returns to Dublin with the Irish premiere of this timely work. Jones will transform Project’s Space Upstairs into a multi-media immersive installation work. The presentation of the work in Ireland is an Arts Council policy initiative, and is being made possible by a €64,000 investment by the state agency for developing the arts as part of its commitment to bring visual arts to Irish audiences.


The exhibition runs until July 18, 2018 and admission is free. For more information please contact: justine.harrington@artscouncil.ie
