Creative Dundee

ECHO + Cicely Farrer

Venue: DCA // Date: 21 February // Time: 6pm // Tickets

Echo is an evening event of multidisciplinary presentations in response to Lorna Macintyre and Margaret Salmon’s exhibitions at Dundee Contemporary Arts, with invited guest Cicely Farrer.

A longstanding part of the exhibition programme at DCA, Echo is designed to throw new light on the works displayed in the galleries by inviting other artistic voices into the building to respond to each show.

As part of this instalment, they have invited writer and curator Cicely Farrer to respond to the current exhibitions. Farrer is currently experimenting in script-writing using recollections and re-imaginings of dialogues from previous art projects. Using these techniques, she will write and perform new work especially for Echo.

In advance of this response, there will be opportunities for other voices to present ideas. In past events, participants have presented a wide variety of new and existing works that they have made in response to, or think is relevant to, the work/themes in our exhibitions. These have included drawings, sculptures, short films, poetry, text readings, dance, music, and performance.

If you would like to share your creative response to the work on the show, please submit a short proposal (no more than 300 words) to by Mon 4 February 2019.
