Radical Archaeologies features Irish art practices that consider and create complex topographies inviting viewers to reflect on social, environmental and political issues often buried, or elided into the contemporary landscape of our island. In partnership with the IRC COALESCE/INSTAR+ Irish Peatland Archaeology Across Time project, the exhibition's public programme will promote discusson and awareness of the ways in which culture, climate action and sustainability are interlinked.
Radical Archaeologies: Unearthing Landscape in Contemporary Irish Art is supported by The Arts Council Ireland, University College Cork, IRC COALESCE/INSTAR+ project funding and private philanthropy through Cork University Foundation.
