The Unseen Shows Podcast: Episode 1 with Mark Garry

‘The Unseen Shows’ is a new podcast series by Visual Artists Ireland.

This podcast series features interviews with artists whose exhibitions are currently sealed behind closed doors, due to the closure of all cultural venues in mid-March, in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The first podcast in this series features an interview with Mark Garry, whose solo exhibition ‘Songs and the Soil’ opened at The MAC in Belfast in late January. This interview was conducted in in early-April via Zoom, just before the scheduled closure of his show.


A printed version of this interview, with installation images from the exhibition, will be published in the July/August issue of The Visual Artists’ News Sheet.

These podcast interviews will be published every two weeks on Soundcloud.
