Art as Social Commentary

Image from the film Remains - Brain Maguire © the artist and Mark McLoughlin with bangbangteo, an independent documentary production company.

Brian Maguire’s new exhibition at the Crawford Art Gallery confronts migration at the US/Mexican border. We have designed a resource pack to support Senior Cycle students in exploring this exhibition and forming their own opinions. It is especially relevant to the leaving cert art appreciation question - Art as Social Commentary. 

The short film, REMAINS - Brian Maguire, offers a window into the artist’s working methods and his motivations. Brian is filmed in conversation with people intimate with the complexities of life at the US/Mexican border.

Visit the exhibition REMAINS - Brian Maguire from 17 September 2021 – 9 January 2022.


We are keen to support teachers and students, if you have a specific question about an exhibition, please feel free to contact us.
