“’The Joyce Effect’: Joyce in the Visual Arts”.

Christa-Maria Lerm Hayes

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    What is it that James Joyce has moved visual artist readers to do? The essay begins with an appraisal of trems such as influence, inspiration and effect to describe this.It also summarizes some findings from my "Joyce in Art" book, presents new work as case studies, in order to investigate the complex relationships between artworks and Joyce's literature.A particular focus are exhibitions that seek to present this work. What questions arise from the interdisciplinary copetence ideally asked of the viewer? What are the institutional frameworks? In this essay, I was able to reflect on the experiences with the "Joyce in Art" exhibition and look ahead to more hybrid exhibition formats that I saw developing in curatorial practice.
