Beyond the Pale:The art of Revolution continues until 25 June
Beyond the Pale:The art of Revolution continues until 25 JuneBeyond the Pale: The art of Revolution an exhibition curated by Anthony Haughey, Pat Cooke and Aoife Ruane.

The exhibition offers a contemporary reflection on The Easter Rising of 1916, perhaps the most critical event in the shaping of Ireland’s modern history. From this source sprang a War of Independence that culminated in the setting up of a twenty-six-county Free State and a six-county Northern Ireland within the Union.

Four writers - Pearse, Connolly, Plunkett and McDonagh - were central to the Rising. This ensured that art and culture were at the heart of the vision these men projected for an independent Ireland. It is entirely appropriate, therefore, that artists would seek to make a reckoning between the dreams of revolution they espoused and the realities of contemporary Ireland.
