This weekend is jam packed with cultural activities!
“Where is my Mind?” @Duke Street Gallery
Duke Street Gallery is presenting a solo exhibition by renowned musician and photographer Dave Hingerty. The exhibition is running from August 19th – August 29th. Through his photographs Dave Hingerty explores the concept of duality, the contrasting states of mind and engagement. Hingerty explores the idea of being physically present but mentally disconnected, lost in internal thought. Hingerty gives the viewer a unique insight into the realities of touring. His photographs present a behind the scenes viewpoint with often inmate and tender moments shared with fellow musicians and friends. The events take place through out the day and best of all, it’s free!
