After a very successful outing at Dublin Castle in April, we’re back in the big gaff in the heart of the capital on Saturday June 30 for another event.
As the hugely successful Coming Home: Art and the Great Hunger exhibition draws to a close at Dublin Castle, this discussion will look at the dark art around tragedies and disaster. How does art capture the horror of these situations? Is the role of the artist to document what has occurred or produce another perspective? How does the work impact not just on the audience but the artist as well?
The panel: Niamh O’Sullivan (Professor Emeritus at National College of Art and Design and curator of Coming Home: Art and the Great Hunger), Gillian O’Brien (historian at Liverpool John Moores University and dark tourism specialist), Brian Maguire (artist whose work is featured in the exhibition) and guests
The details: this discussion will take place at Dublin Castle on Saturday June 30 at noon. Tickets are now available here.
