1916 Ireland in Contemporary Art

Remember Me © Alice Maher

12 May–13 August 2016

Commissioned by Larry Lambe, the exhibition will feature works by artists including: Alice Maher, Robert Ballagh, Rita Duffy, Michael Coady and David Lilburn.

Varying in scale and media, from painting to poetry, the only instruction the commissioned artists received from Lambe was that the work should be linked with any event of 1916 that affected Ireland, including the Easter Rising.

The commissioning process started in 2009 in order to allow the artist time to have a mature look and consider the commission over a generous time-span. The artists have also been invited to write in relation to their created work, which will be hung alongside each work offering the viewer an added layer of context and mediation.

The exhibition is created in partnership with the Toradh Gallery, Co. Meath and the Galway City Museum.
