“Irish creative identity travels as easily as Irish people do … and we’re everywhere”—GEORGE BOLSTER

As part of the Opening Season in the New Irish Arts Center, we welcome our inaugural curator-in-residence, Miranda Driscoll, executive director of Solas Nua, Washington, D.C., and former director of Sirius Arts Centre in Cork, to help us bring to life the visual arts canvases within our theatre, atrium, ground floor, and interstitial spaces. Driscoll’s term includes curation of our opening group exhibition, The Space We Occupy, and a theatre- and building-wide installation, a consequence of ~, a retrospective of work by Maud Cotter.

We also welcome Dublin-based visual artist and curator Moran Been-noon, who will serve as guest curator for a yet-to-be-announced exhibition in 2023.
