About The Event

Join us for the book launch of Clare Gallagher's latest book 'The Second Shift', and a conversation with her and Mirjami Schuppert (independent curator).

"The Second Shift is the term given to the hidden shift of housework and childcare primarily carried out by women on top of their paid employment. It is physical, mental and emotional labour which demands effort, skill and time but is unpaid, unaccounted for, unequally distributed and largely unrecognised.

Hidden in plain sight and veiled by familiarity and insignificance, the second shift is largely absent from photographs of home and family. This work is an attempt to recognise the complexity and value of this invisible work. It is a call for resistance to the capitalist, patriarchal and aesthetic systems which ignore it."

The event will take place during Late Night Art, which runs from 6pm-9pm, where you can view our two current exhibitions 'Eleven Voices - Psychogeography, Belfast' in Gallery 1, and 'Sixteen' in Gallery 2.
