There’s always a gazillion things going on around the country every day and night of the week so it’s inevitable that some stuff slips through the cracks. One of the events which doesn’t deserve that fate is the visit of Gavin Bryars to Dublin at the weekend.

The composer of “Jesus Blood Never Failed Me Yet”, “The Sinking of the Titanic” and other works appears in conversation on Saturday afternoon (June 6, 3.30pm) at IMMA as part of the Summer Rising event at the venue. Bryars will be talking with curator Rachael Thomas about his own work in relation to artist Etel Adnan, whose oil paintings are on show at the gallery at present. Admission is free and the event comes recommended.
