Signals of Change: Collecting Irish Art in the Twentieth Century

 

From Independence to the Celtic Tiger, Irish artists have signaled, through their work, changes in an Ireland that continued to shape, define, and redefine itself. In this talk, art historian and curator Dr Michael Waldron will consider selected works from the Great Southern Collection as an index of the traditions and innovations in Irish art of the twentieth century. This illustrated talk will include a reflection on collecting practices on behalf of the State (notably by the transport authority CIÉ – Córas Iompair Éireann), the history of the Great Southern Collection, and works by such artists as Gerard Dillon, Norah McGuinness, Nano Reid, and Patrick Scott.

Dr Michael Waldron is Assistant Curator of Collections & Special Projects at Crawford Art Gallery, Cork.
