Research output: Non-textual formArtefact

Abstract

A public lecture at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, 05.12.2018. Louise Wallace discusses themes of gender, interior space, domesticity and women’s labour that characterise some of the most definitive works comprising of the IMMA exhibition Mary Swanzy, Voyages (16.10.2018 - 17.02.2019). Wallace positions Swanzy’s oeuvre within the developments of Modernism and the avant-garde’s liking for travel. Swanzy’s feminine gaze is read alongside the contemporary concerns of female painters working today. This talk was programmed as part of a series of public events aimed at reintroducing Irish audiences to this artist’s extraordinary achievements and is part of the IMMA Modern Masters Series.
