A touring exhibition from the Arts Council Collection* curated by Jennifer Higgie

The exhibition title is a quotation from the artist Walter Sickert, whose beautiful study of a woman from 1906.

The exhibition is accompanied by a full-colour publication that includes an essay by Jennifer Higgie and is available in the Gallery Reception for €23.00, with a selection of exhibition postcards for €1 each.

February 18 – April 9, 2016

Highlanes Gallery is delighted to present The Swing of the Sixties: Trinity’s College Gallery, curated by Richard Wood, graduate of Trinity College Dublin.

The exhibition features key Irish and international works by artists Josef Albers, Karel Appel, Patrick Collins, Barrie Cooke, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Micheal Farrell, John Hoyland, Robert Indiana, Cecil King, Roy Lichtenstein, Nano Reid, Patrick Scott, William Scott, Peter Sedgley, Camille Souter and Victor Vasarely.

During the ‘60s, Richard Wood was a Student Volunteer on 'The College Gallery' Picture Hire Scheme, founded by Genetics Professor George Dawson (1927-2004). To celebrate 55 years of the scheme, Lismore Castle Art Gallery and Trinity invited Richard to evoke the great energy sparked by direct engagement with modern art encountered by these first groups of students working with George, Anne Crookshank and Adrian Phillips, as they travelled the length and breadth of Ireland and often further afield, feasting on the effect of ‘the swing’ taking place in the visual arts.
