Spotify Playlist: Shamrock Shake

The pseudo Irish boys are back in town! It’s March and you know what that means… tacky “Kiss me I’m Irish” shirts, terrible Leprechaun accents, and pints of Guinness because that’s the only Irish beer anyone knows.

Girls, grab your Guinness and a friend and have a therapeutic swaying sing-along to Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol! Lovers, you can kiss your S/O (whether he/she’s Irish or not) and listen to Breathless by The Corrs! Stoners, enjoy a healthy dose of Enya and......

As a comment on the dizzying self-voyeurism of our era, LA FUGUE amicably teases each of us for our narcissistic tendencies. In fact, Geneviève Thauvette’s interactive installation casts the viewer in a leading role, as their reaction to the work becomes an essential part of the project. As they approach the exit, the size of the tunnel shrinks and the viewer must get down on......
