Detail from one of the amazing glass mosaics by Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian - she’s about 90 now, has had a long career. We were really lucky to catch the last day of the exhibition and did a lovely family workshop.

Do you by any chance have a wall in your house that looks something like this? Stacked to the ceiling with stuff? We bet you do. People of Dublin: we want your dirt. Over the next few weeks, we hope to acquire many collections of small things with a connection to Dublin. It could be 65 or 665 Dublin sweets, letters, or shells. Maybe you own a collection of matchboxes, business cards, confectionery, groceries, shampoos, bottle tops, body parts, toothpastes, passport photos or drivers’ licences. Among the collections already acquired by the museum is a set of tennis balls discarded by the dogs of Dun Laoghaire, 1997-2017. To apply, please send a photo and short description of your collection to muireann@littlemuseum.ie by 5pm on Friday, December 14th. ・・・ [Image description: a wall brimming with historical artefacts of all shapes and sizes.] ・・・ #littlemuseumofdublin #littlemuseum #dublinireland #dublinmuseum #irishhistory #dublinstagram #dublin #instadublin #discoverdublin #dublin 🍀 #wanted #submissionswanted #submissionsopen #submissions #dirt #detritus #stuff #collection #collections #collectible #stuff #collectors

Super Sunday for kids at IMMA
Thinking of Frida Kahlo at the V&A: I was so happy to see the exhibition on 9th November and deeply moved by it, just as I was deeply moved by a brief visit to Mexico City in 1981. Sad to say, I didn't visit the Blue House, but was organised into seeing much of the work of Diego Reverá. I was also profoundly affected by the deep devotion at the shrine to the Virgin of Guadeloupe Making up - Stories To breath New life Making up With tiny scraps Perplexed Not vexed Saddened A little Just a little Poco poco But still I think Of making up - With tiny fragments Of slubbed silk And every fine fabric magically transformed To the world of Chic And Leaning against The red Brick wall And the rags Always the rags To highlight Differences And make me know How much the rags, Now painting cloths, Have their place in the world And Every bit as much No! More! More Much more than The concoction On the catwalk Oh how the rags Can talk Let’s all wear rags for a day No! A week! Let's show 'em What Rag week Really means Wear the rags with pride Wear rags and smile With swags and swags of style Pure style And remember Every fine fabric From the Silk Road To the Old Bog Road To the field of flax Let the cloth of old Be treasured Like gold #mexicocity #victoriaandalbertmuseum #museumofmodernart #dublinmuseum #ulstermuseum #tatemoderngallery #fridakahlomuseum #emstathens #museoreinasofía #guggenheim_venice #museopicassomálaga #pompidoucentre #fundaciójoanmiró #lelouvre #musei_vaticani #stedelijkmuseum #basilicaofourladyofguadalupe , humbling
