Arts Insight Episode 6 - Joe Caslin and MayKay
Joe Caslin is a street artist, activist and teacher who is best known for his beautifully rendered drawings which engage directly with the social issues of modern Ireland.
MayKay is is an Irish musician, DJ and presenter known as the frontwoman of Fight Like Apes and Le Galaxie, and also as presenter of the legendary Irish Music programme Other Voices.
Recently they have been collaborating on a project called "Reset" with Rua Red and Contact Studio. They began earlier in the year with a project called "Resilient/Resilience" which was part of Creative Ireland's Cruinniú na nÓg programme. This exhibition can currently be seen in Gallery 1 in Rua Red. "Reset" is the final phase of the work, a companion piece that will be installed outside Rua Red and launched with a documentary short as part of Culture Night 2020. MayKay is also releasing her first solo single as part of this, it will premier on Friday 18th September in the film. At the time of this conversation, however, the plan was very different. Then 2020 intervened, and new restrictions meant that they had to adapt. You can hear the podcast here, and be sure to keep an eye out for updates from:
