This exhibition explores the development of modernism in Ireland beginning in 1920, a period of political turmoil in this country and ends in the modern Ireland of 1960. It will contrast the traditional ‘Irish School of painting’ of the male dominated RHA favoured by de Valera and the new Irish Government to that of the European influenced art that was being championed by women artists such as Mainie Jellett, Evie Hone and Norah McGuinness amongst others through the Dublin Painters Society and the IELA exhibitions.
Between 1923 and 1931, Dublin Castle’s State Apartments were transformed into courtrooms and temporarily housed the first sittings of Ireland’s Supreme and High Courts. This exhibition – which includes some unique images of the Castle – shows how these rooms were and profiles some of the main judges who worked there at the time.

Have you ever chased a rainbow? Or wondered what it would be like to stand in one?

It’s 2001, the world has changed irreparably and somewhere in the middle of Ireland a girl ﬁghts for the meaty role of Mary of Nazareth in the school nativity. This is a show about righting a wrong and looking like you want it enough. Pull up a pew, light a candle and listen to someone who doesn’t know what they’re talking about for an hour.
