Exhibition Lecture: Reading the Landscape in Irish Art

Monday 11th June 2018 - Monday 11th June 2018
Join us for our next Exhibition Lecture Series, based around our Summer Exhibition, ‘Signals of Change’: Paintings from Crawford Art Gallery’s Great Southern Collection.
Monday, June 11th, at 1pm 
Throughout the twentieth century, landscape has been a major theme for artists as the Great Southern Collection demonstrates – and landscape continues to be an exceptionally  popular theme both with artists, with galleries, and with the public.  What is also evident from the Collection is the range in the way it is represented. This talk explores artists’ varying responses to the physical environment, how they communicate these responses visually, and how they can be read and interpreted in the context of landscape interests in general.
 
Dr Yvonne Scott is Associate Professor in the Department of the History of Art and Architecture, Trinity College Dublin, and Director of TRIARC, the Trinity Irish Art Research Centre. She has published widely on modern and contemporary art, and specialises in agendas in the representation of landscape and environment.
