2008, Dennis and I curate Underground. The exhibition takes place in Road Records, an independent store and a hub for Dublin’s music scene. We rent the basement and fill shelves and vitrines with ephemera – private collections, limited editions, and artworks. Documentaries, CDs and vinyl are available to view and listen to. A playback of a cassette recording is scheduled. We organise some screenings, and an on-line auction of Northern Soul records and a live band rehearsal are streamed into the exhibition space: the process of preparation made public as a performance...Underground fixed transient moments. From fragments, it formulated one (necessarily) incomplete and partial view of music culture and activity in the city. Road Records closed in July 2010.
