Danny McCarthy has been presented with a Cork Person of the Month award to mark his pioneering work in sound and performance art over the decades.

Danny, who lives in Midleton and grew up in Mallow, was one of the very first in Cork to use sound as an art.

He founded The Quiet Club group, with Mick O’Shea, and they have performed in China, Japan, the United States, Canada, and most European countries.

He originally studied at the National College of Art & Design, and was a founding director of Cork’s Triskel Arts Centre, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. He was also a founding director of the National Sculpture Factory and is a director of the Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh.

“Danny’s body of work over the years has been enormous. He continues to make art and curates numerous exhibitions and projects around the world,” said Cork Person of the Year awards organiser Manus O’Callaghan.
