In conversation with Brian Maguire

Thursday 18 November at 5.30pm, Upper Gallery, Floor 1.

"There's beauty all around, and these guys are dying, but then there's airplanes going over [...] That’s why I make these paintings, to draw the line under that difference."

In 2019, artist Brian Maguire visited Dr. Greg Hess, Chief Medical Examiner for Pima County, Tucson, Arizona. Dr. Hess gave the artist access to some thousand visual records of migrant lives lost in the crossing from South and Central America and Mexico, into the United States. Selecting from this photographic source, the artist began a new series of paintings, acknowledging the many unidentified victims who undertook this perilous journey and resulting in REMAINS, Maguire's current exhibition at Crawford Art Gallery.

Join us for a live 'in conversation' event exploring issues of migration, displacement and human dignity at Crawford Art Gallery with Brian Maguire and Nuala Finnegan on Thursday 18 November. 

Professor Nuala Finnegan is head of the Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies at University College Cork.


Find information on the exhibition REMAINS - Brian Maguire, which runs until 9 January 2022, here.
