Ekphrasis: Writing & Art
led by Dr Stephen Sexton, in collaboration with the Ulster Museum
Through a series of workshops and discussions, students develop new work in response to artworks from the Ulster Museum's Collection. They have exclusive access to collection files, and the expertise of Anna Liesching, Curator of Art at the Ulster Museum. Their new work is published, and performed at special gallery tours alongside the artworks themselves.
This annual project builds on the long history of interdisciplinary dialogue between writers and artists in Belfast. The poems sit permanently in the corresponding collection file, contributing to the ongoing story of the artwork.
