In Conversation with Jennifer Keating and Clare Gallagher

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


This public in-conversation-with between Jennifer Keating and Clare Gallagher marks the launch of Portraits of Irish Art Practice, a new book by Jennifer Keating that explores the space where aesthetic expression meets lived experience for Irish artists Rita Duffy, Mairéad McClean, Paula McFetridge and Ursula Burke.

The book contains portrait essays, interwoven with photographs, documenting each artist’s coming of age in Ireland and Northern Ireland, placed in the context of her emerging practice.

As individuals, their work considers infringements on human rights, systemic violence, gender roles and the negotiation of figurative and literal borders and boundaries. Together, they interrogate past and present conflict and emergence from conflict, locally and globally.
