The art of Tarot poetics began in Renaissance Italy with Teo lo Folengo and his contemporaries, and since then poets including W B Yeats, T S Eliot and Marge Piercy have used the Tarot in their work. Curated by Liam Carson, The Tower features Dairena Ní Chinnéide and Helen Ivory reading work inspired by the Tarot cards, with on- screen projections created by Margaret Lonergan. On
his albums Desire and Street-Legal, Bob Dylan wrote a series of songs drenched in Tarot imagery, and a selection of these, transcreated by Gabriel Rosenstock, will be performed by Enda Reilly.

Presented in association with IMRAM Irish Language Literature Festival.
