MUSIC +MAKER seeks to travel a particular path of selected contemporary collaborations that have seen artists and musicians/composers come together in diverse ways. 

Complementary disciplines that enable the creation of new forms of knowledge ultimately assist us in understanding more about the world around us, and ourselves.  It is natural then, given their innate sympatico, that many collaborations and joint projects in which the visual and sound combine to form a coherent whole, have evolved from partnerships between artists and musicians.  From medieval manuscript to Lady Gaga +Jeff Koons’ ARTpop, arts and music collaborations are by no means a new singularity, but are increasingly infiltrating our collective psyche in subliminal or compulsory salable ways. MUSIC +MAKER here speaks both of collaboration and relationships that are sometimes ephemeral, sometimes augmented over years, but ultimately are created with a sincere poetic grace and mutual understanding.

Opened by Simon O’Connor, composer and Director, Museum of Literature Ireland
