Curated by Miranda Driscoll, Irish Arts Center Curator-in-Residence

In a multi-media activation of the public realms of 726 11th Avenue, six artists representing the breadth and depth of contemporary Irish visual arts use installation, photography, print and drawing, as well as paint and plaster—the physical materials of the building’s renovation—to mark the opening of the New Irish Arts Center and invite the viewer to consider the space we occupy during our short time on Earth.

Artist talk: March 30, 6pm ET, 2022
Reservations to attend the artist talk coming soon.
