University of Ulster MFA Graduate Exhibition

This is the only reason I know I'm getting older. Year after year, I visit it and wish I had a creative talent. Alas, it isn't so, and you leave the exhibition feeling happy-sad that beauty is in such safe hands. Two Le Cool contributing photographers, Des Moriarty and Oliver Smith, are showing in this year's crop of MFA graduates. Des' project is a primary-plastic hued examination of processed food. It's gross, but shiny and fun, like a fifties themed diner. Oliver has gone into battle, documenting the youth of today in a pure, non-judgemental form, creating mist in the midst of the party. Leading commercial photographer Simon Burch has stretched his fine art chops with a US-based project, and Johnny Savage creates beauty out of dereliction. Bursting with Irish photographic talent, the Belfast course is earning its reputation as the course that separates the wheat from the chaff, so all the more reason to check it out. / Kate Coleman

Always Alone Together

From a group of nerdy teens who had never belonged before, to the redefining of a norm where having hundreds of friends is nothing unusual, Always Alone Together tells us the history of the internet and how those who were instrumental in its creation fundamentally changed how humankind interacts. Striking a fine balance of storytelling and history, this show blurs the boundaries between theatre, lecture and podcast and, in turns ubiquitous and bibliographic, tells us the meaning of what it is to truly connect to others. Cathal Maguire’s incredible research and emotive performance combine to form a piece which is as amazingly informative as it is emotive and poignant. Following an explorative stint in The Collaborations Festival in Spring, Game Theory is back with a re-tweaking of the beautiful and enlightening Always Alone Together. / Jack Gibson

Culture Night

It's Culture Life rather than Culture Night here in Le Cool. However, when it comes to showcasing and accessing the wealth of wonders in our city, this is a special starting and jump off point for novices and veterans. Doors are opened, tours arranged and everyone is ready to put their best foot forward with increasingly inventive collaborations. On our own doorstep. Dublin Ate sees three distilleries combine forces to showcase their emerging efforts under the umbrella of a food and drink celebration. The Irish Times is owing Merrion Square with a plethora of events on the street and in its basements. Dublin's oldest working charity The Mendicity Institution opens its doors to recreations while Arthur Fields' photos of Dublin will be projected around the city. Consume and subsume but remember culture is not just for tonight. / Le Cool Dublin

The Golem

Some of the most eerie and atmospheric horror movies ever made come out of the silent era so this fright fest based on the 1915 Peter Wegener and Henrik Galeen movie should prove suitably creepy for even the most hardened scream queen or king. It tells the tale of an eccentric antique dealer who tracks down an ancient statue known as The Golem, which was once brought to life to protect the Jewish people of Prague. However on waking the ancient creature from its slumber he discovers that it is not that easily controlled. With an original live music score and a visceral theatrical performance this is both a visual and aural feast and almost like a living silent film. If you enjoy feeling the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and a shiver run down your spine then you’ll love this. / Frances Winston

Dragana Jurisic YU: The Lost Country

Dragana Jurisic’s YU: The Lost Country guides the viewer through a pilgrimage, unfolding before them a myriad of lives and emotions onto the map of where Yugoslavia once lay. Throughout the series of photographs documenting new life and the remnants of past atrocities in the former conglomerate, Jurisic rhythmically inserts with almost Wes Anderson-like technicolour shots of her travel reading, where sprawling diary entries live in the margins telling of the encounters which shook, infuriated and moved her. Often filled with anger, these contrast against the awesome range of emotions captured in her photography, where domesticity, townsfolk, dereliction and grandeur sit side by side. The quest for her past runs throughout, borne from the jarring assertion that “Yugoslavia”, “Is there any such country?”, “No but that’s where I’m from.” / Jack Gibson

20,000 Days On Earth

If anyone's counting the days he's been alive, it's Nick Cave. And 20,000 was the perfect stop-off point for a documentary by visual artists Forsyth & Pollard (just FYI, I'm at 8998). The spine of the film is Cave's meetings with a psychoanalyst, and his complex archive of photos and memorabilia. We see him conduct an interview whilst driving a car (Kylie Minogue is in the back seat obvs) but they can't see each other's reactions, which adds an innocence, naivete and pathos to the exchanges. Forsyth & Pollard's first feature this may be, but their fine art work has been exhibited in the Tate and as products of Goldsmiths' golden 90s, they have quietly worked alongside the louder Chapmans and Emins of the art world, and have the confidence and skill that means the film surpasses the 'documentary' and becomes art in its own right. / Kate Coleman
