Online initiative

Home from Home

Irish artists respond to the COVID 19 restrictions.

Sara Baume, Tinka Bechert, Martin Boyle, Brian Duggan, James L. Hayes, Kerry Guinan, Eileen Hutton, Julie Merriman, Doireann Ní Ghrioghair, Treasa O’Brien, Julia Pallone, Amanda Rice, Ciara Roche, Kathy Tynan, Mieke Vanmechelen

Home from Home is intended as a way to provide insight into the extraordinary situation of being confined to home during the COVID 19 pandemic. The selected artists were due to present work in the Glucksman this April as part of the exhibition HOME which is now postponed until later this year. 

Every Tuesday and Friday, we will share the response of a single artist and provide some additional information on their wider practice. The artists explore the shared challenges of being at home, the frustrations, boredom, anxiety, but also the capacity to reflect, create and connect.

Our building may be closed, but our team are online during gallery opening hours and we would love to hear from you through our facebook, instagram and twitter accounts. We also have lots of online activities if you want to get creative while you are at home.
