Carrer Pou de la Figuera 16. 08003 Barcelona

In English. Limited space. Reservations: [email protected]

Irish artists Ruth Clinton & Niamh Moriarty will present their work as part of a two-week residency in Barcelona and their approach to the extraordinary story of The Pilgrim (narrated here) – an 18th-century Barcelona merchant who ended up living his last sixteen years in penance in the Irish town of Askeaton. They will be accompanied by the project co-curators Michele Horrigan and Sean Lynch from Askeaton Contemporary Arts who will highlight some of their recent programmes.

The Pilgrim is a pilot exchange programme linking Barcelona with southwest Ireland, Latitudes with the organisation Askeaton Contemporary Arts, and Ruth Clinton & Niamh Moriarty with Catalan artist Eulàlia Rovira, who hosts this event in her studio.

Supported by the Irish Arts Council’s International Residency Initiatives Scheme 2022.
