Gal­way In­ter­na­tional Arts Fes­ti­val, Un­til July 30 Gal­way Arts Fes­ti­val’s com­mit­ment to the vis­ual arts is all the more sig­nif­i­cant when you re­alise the city is still with­out a per­ma­nent ma­jor gallery. This year’s ex­cel­lent pro­gramme in­cludes Brazil­ian-born Pacheco’s pleas­ingly dis­turb­ing fig­ures and prints at the former print­works of the Con­nacht Tri­bune. Given the cur­rent state of the world, her dystopi­anism feels very apt, and the venue is so great, it re­ally should be a gallery year-round. Mean­while, at NUI Gal­way, John Ger­rard shows four newly com­mis­sioned works in his sig­na­ture Real Time 3D. Any­one who caught Ger­rard’s Western Flag on Chan­nel 4 for Earth Day this year, should be a com­mit­ted fan. Go see.
