Brain Drain with Anathema opening today at 6 – Incubation Space 6 – 10pm (D01 N5H6).
Brain Drain is a loose term used to describe the substantial emigration or migration from countries. The result of this actionhas been the loss of expertise, and Ireland has a lon history of brain drain as a result of colonialism and financial crises; conflict and hunger. Someone who we know is moving away every week.
Pertinent to this project is creative Brain Drain, in which the artists exhibiting and exploring this theme have acknowledged the factors behind the phenomenon, whilst not disparaging Ireland as a creative inspiration and landscape.
