22 June - 23 September 2018

In 2017, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts came together for the first time  to commission a significant  socially engaged artist’s project in Dublin.  The call for submissions was made through CAPP the EU Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme,  a transnational partnership with Spain, Ireland, U.K Hungary, Finland and Germany and co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. Following submissions from artists from all of the CAPP partners, Irish artist Seamus Nolan’s proposal was successful. One of Ireland’s foremost artists working in collaborative arts practice, Seamus Nolan’s project sees him investigating the idea of archive, deconstructing ideas on ‘heritage’ and engaging with the Traveller communities in Ireland  and Traveller activists and archivists. Seamus Nolan’s  exhibition at the Hugh Lane will comprise of archival material that forms the Irish Travelling People: a Resource Collection and which is  borrowed from the Special Collections of Ulster University.  This remarkable collection was originally created and built up by Eileen L’Amie during her time at the Ulster University.

Rachel Maclean: Just be yourself! http://www.hughlane.ie/past/2031-rachel-maclean http://www.hughlane.ie/past/2031-rachel-maclean The Hugh Lane is pleased to present the first solo exhibition in Ireland of Scottish artist Rachel Maclean, who creates fantastic visual narratives using green-screen technology. She parodies fairy tales, children’s television programmes, advertising, internet videos, and pop culture to examine identities, power dynamics and consumer desire. All of the characters are played by the artist, who transforms herself through extravagant costumes and make-up.

This exhibition includes Spite Your Face which Maclean exhibited at the 57th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia in 2017, representing Scotland+Venice 2017, curated by Alchemy Film and Arts in partnership with Talbot Rice Gallery and the University of Edinburgh. The film refers to the Italian folk-tale The Adventures of Pinocchio and offers a powerful critique of contemporary society and its underlying fears and desire. Spite Your Face is a tale across two worlds - with a bright, glittering and ordered upper world, and a warped, dirty, impoverished lower world - where the lure of wealth, power and adoration entices a destitute young boy into the shimmering riches of the kingdom above.

Maclean says of Spite Your Face: “With this film I set out to respond to significant changes in the political climate in the UK and abroad over the last 12 months - in particular the divisive campaigns in the lead up to the Brexit vote and the US Presidential election. These events have been central in heralding a new post-truth era, where politicians feel free to say what they want to help them gain popular support, with little regard for factual accuracy.”

Based in Glasgow, Rachel Maclean was educated at Edinburgh College of Art. Maclean graduated in 2009 and her work came to public attention in New Contemporaries later that year. She has since risen to significant acclaim, with major solo shows at HOME, Manchester and Tate Britain, 2016-17. Her work A Whole New World won the prestigious Margaret Tait Award in 2013, she has twice been shortlisted for the Jarman Award, and achieved widespread critical praise for Feed Me (2016) in British Art Show 8.

Doireann O’Malley: Prototypes http://www.hughlane.ie/past/2029-doireann-omalley-prototypes http://www.hughlane.ie/past/2029-doireann-omalley-prototypes Doireann O'Malley's film Prototypes brings together transgender studies, science fiction, bio politics, psychoanalysis, AI, and experimental music. She skilfully ties these to phantoms of modernist utopias, epitomized by the post-war architecture of Berlin, which serves as a dreamlike scenography for the main, protagonists' ghostly actions.
- Jury Statement, Edith Russ Haus fur Media Art Stipendium, 2016.

Prototypes is a multi-screen film installation by Berlin-based Irish artist Doireann O’Malley.

Prototypes I focuses on female to male gender transition and the intra-actions of bodies, objects and drives. It is set in The Interbau Project, a modernist architectural housing project built in Berlin in the height of the cold war.

Prototypes II & III follow a further exploration of trans embodiments with trans female protagonists, going further into computer generated dream landscapes.

The combination of film, CGI (computer-generated imagery) and Virtual Reality which O'Malley is developing in relation to the construction of trans bodies and subjectivities is an interesting layering of contemporary forms and complex identities in the digital age.

The work is the result of a collaborative methodology. Part one comprised research, reading and writing sessions with the main protagonists. These included Jungian dream analysis sessions with the psycho-analyst Andrés Ocazionez and Social Dreaming workshops with gender psychiatrist Eva Sophie Philipps. Monologues were written in workshops exploring trans subjectivity with the protagonists.

O’Malley’s work is a result of this exploratory methodology which generates new forms of knowledge, drawing on a wide range of feminist perspectives within queer theory, psycho-analysis, quantum physics, genetics, cybernetics and systems biology.

Prototypes I was made with the kind support of Stiftung Kunstfonds, Edith Russ Haus Stipendium: Lower Saxony Grant for Media Art, Xposed Film Festival Production Prize and 25P Cine Support. Prototypes II will be filmed in Berlin in spring 2018. Both parts will be shown as a five screen installation at The Hugh Lane in summer 2018.

Amanda Dunsmore: Keeper http://www.hughlane.ie/past/1956-amanda-dunsmore-keeper http://www.hughlane.ie/past/1956-amanda-dunsmore-keeper Marking the 20-year anniversary of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement—a major milestone in the evolution of peace in Northern Ireland—Keeper presents artist Amanda Dunsmore’s social and political portraits that reflect specific points in history from the late nineteenth century to the present day. The artist’s methodology is grounded in her interest in issues of social and political change and this body of work stems from her time as artist in residence at The Maze and Long Kesh Prison from 1998.

Dunsmore’s exhibition includes silent, 20-minute video portraits of key political figures involved in the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement, providing unique new perspectives on familiar, high-profile figures. These include John Hume and David Trimble, who were jointly awarded The Nobel Peace Prize in 1998 "for their efforts to find a peaceful solution to the conflict in Northern Ireland", and whose portraits will be exhibited for the first time at The Hugh Lane.

Alongside these portraits will be works acknowledging the role of Mairead Corrigan Maguire, Betty Williams and Ciaran McKeown who founded the Peace People, a cross-community grassroots movement of citizens dedicated to ending the sectarian strife in Northern Ireland. Maguire and Williams shared the 1976 Nobel Peace Prize.

Other works in Keeper expand this theme of portraiture and its role in social and political life and further reflect on the formal and informal processes through which memory and history are made. These include Billy's Museum (2004), a filmed record of a collection of items relating to various individuals, incidents and occurrences made by Prison Officer Billy Hull in HM Prison Maze. A new artwork entitled The People's Portraits 1899-1918 will also be shown. It comprises 100 printed portraits taken from late nineteenth and early twentieth century glass plate negative prison photographs.

Amanda Dunsmore works in art processes that explore representations of societal transformation through contextual portraiture and social historic projects. Over the past 25 years she has exhibited widely in Ireland and internationally and her artworks can be found in private and public collections.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue featuring essays by Senator George Mitchell, Amanda Dunsmore, Fionna Barber and Cillian McGrattan.

"Dunsmore's beguiling and occasionally astonishing works beg you to examine this recent history through prisms of legacy and age." - Hilary A White, Irish Independent

Monday 9 April, 5pm

Special Lecture: Senator George Mitchell, The Good Friday Agreement: A Personal Reflection

Permanent Collection http://www.hughlane.ie/whatson-collections/301-permanent-collection-2009 http://www.hughlane.ie/whatson-collections/301-permanent-collection-2009 Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane houses the foremost collection of modern and contemporary art in Ireland. Established in 1908 by Sir Hugh Lane and his supporters with Dublin Corporation the collection has grown considerably with acquisitions  in both traditional art forms and new media. The gallery has benefited from significant bequests including Lady Lavery Memorial Bequest 1935, Francis Bacon's Studio 1998, Sean Scully Collection 2005 and gifts from including The Friends of the National Collections of Ireland, The contemporary Irish Arts Society as well as from individuals. The gallery's collection is an invaluable reflection of movements and initiatives that have occurred from the time of the Impressionists to today including superb works acquired from the ROSC series of exhibitions which occurred between 1967 and 1988. Recent acquisitions include Perceived Lightness by Liam Gillick, Black Atlas Series by Kathy Prendergast and Climate Shit Drawing by Yinka Shonibare.

In 2008 the gallery celebrated its first centenary with Hugh Lane: 100 Years exhibition which saw the return from National Gallery London all 39  paintings from Sir Hugh Lane's 1917 Bequest. They hung together together with the original collection for the first time since 1913. Over 80,000 people visited during the course of the exhibition.  In 2015 the gallery commemorated the centenary of the death of Sir Hugh Lane with the exhibition Sir Hugh Lane: Legacy and Loss. In 2016 as part of the commemorations for the centenary of the 1916 Rising, the gallery launched a themed programme Artist as Witness with selected displays from the collection.

Sean Scully Gallery http://www.hughlane.ie/whatson-collections/184-sean-scully-gallery http://www.hughlane.ie/whatson-collections/184-sean-scully-gallery As a result of an ongoing collaboration with Sean Scully, who like Francis Bacon was born in Dublin, the gallery is honoured to be the recipient of a gift of seven paintings, promised since the mid-1990s and presented by the artist in 2006.  These paintings form the second permanent installation in a dedicated gallery in the new wing, located just off Gallery 12.  This gift from Sean Scully, a superb exponent of abstract art, provides a mainstay for the varied exponents of non-figurative painting in the collection; his practice is singular in its illumination of contemporary concerns in abstract expression.

Seamus Nolan: Traveller Collection at the Hugh Lane http://www.hughlane.ie/outreach-projects/past/2179-travellercollection2 http://www.hughlane.ie/outreach-projects/past/2179-travellercollection2 Seamus Nolan: Traveller Collection at the Hugh Lane

22 June - 23 September 2018

In 2017, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts came together for the first time  to commission a significant  socially engaged artist’s project in Dublin.  The call for submissions was made through CAPP the EU Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme,  a transnational partnership with Spain, Ireland, U.K Hungary, Finland and Germany and co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. Following submissions from artists from all of the CAPP partners, Irish artist Seamus Nolan’s proposal was successful. One of Ireland’s foremost artists working in collaborative arts practice, Seamus Nolan’s project sees him investigating the idea of archive, deconstructing ideas on ‘heritage’ and engaging with the Traveller communities in Ireland  and Traveller activists and archivists. Seamus Nolan’s  exhibition at the Hugh Lane will comprise of archival material that forms the Irish Travelling People: a Resource Collection and which is  borrowed from the Special Collections of Ulster University.  This remarkable collection was originally created and built up by Eileen L’Amie during her time at the Ulster University.

Seamus Nolan: CAPP Commission 2017 http://www.hughlane.ie/outreach-projects/past/1699-seamusnolan http://www.hughlane.ie/outreach-projects/past/1699-seamusnolan Artist Seamus Nolan is the recipient of the prestigious CAPP commission with Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and Create.

We are delighted to announce that Seamus Nolan has been successful in the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) Open Call for a socially engaged commission. This is a very significant commission in the collaborative arts sphere in Ireland. It has resulted from a successful collaboration between Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, located in Parnell Square and is supported by the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) a transnational programme co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. The applications, from across the CAPP network of partners, were of particularly high calibre with forty-one artists submitting diverse proposals in cross disciplinary artforms. This exciting commission will run from 2017 to 2018 and sets out to encourage meaningful and in depth engagement with communities of place and of interest as well as the distinct architectural, socio-political and cultural landscape of the North Inner City of Dublin.  Seamus Nolan’s proposal to investigate the idea of archive, deconstruct ideas on ‘heritage’ and engage with both communities of place and of interest, involving Traveller activists and archivists, stood out in terms of concept and imaginative power.

Barbara Dawson, Director Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane “We are delighted to work with Create and Seamus Nolan on this great commission. One of Ireland’s foremost artists working in collaborative arts practice, Nolan has presented a powerful and thoughtful proposal focused on the Traveller community. Working with the community, Paveé Point, archives and archivists, the artist will go beyond any single reading of identity and heritage in a contemporary re thinking of established histories, memories and communities”

Ailbhe Murphy, Director of Create “We are delighted that Seamus Nolan, one of Ireland’s leading collaborative arts practitioners, has proposed this very timely and relevant socially engaged project. With a focus on archive, identity and history in relation to the Irish Traveller community, Nolan will work with a number of collaborators to re shape and re work ideas about what ‘heritage’ and memory can be. We are really looking forward to working in partnership with the Hugh Lane on this exciting commission.”

Seamus Nolan, artist “I am really pleased to have the opportunity through this commission to examine basic notions of representation and community building in relation to Traveller past and heritage. The commission will support the coming together of cultural practitioners, activists and archivists in an exploration of contested histories.”

Martin Collins, Pavee Point added: “With the recognition of Traveller ethnicity it is important to explore how Traveller culture and identity can be integrated in an inclusive way into all aspects of Irish life. Pavee Point welcomes this opportunity to continue to develop innovative and imaginative approaches and looks forward to working with artist Seamus Nolan.”

Dublin's Culture Collects http://www.hughlane.ie/outreach-projects/past/1675-dublinscultureconnects http://www.hughlane.ie/outreach-projects/past/1675-dublinscultureconnects Dublin's Culture Connects: The National Neighbourhood

The National Neighbourhood spans the Dublin City Council region, and for the first time brings together the Public Libraries, the area offices, the City Arts Office and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, in partnership with National Cultural Institutions (The Abbey Theatre, The National Museum of Ireland, The National Library of Ireland, The National Gallery of Ireland, The National Concert Hall, The Chester Beatty Library, The National Archives and The Irish Museum of Modern Art).

The core value is the public and cultural community working together, connecting Dubliners in significant ways on projects that are relevant to their expressed concerns. Each project has evolved from a series of conversations and are harnessing the appetites of particular groups for cultural engagement.

These programmes focus on creating space for experimentation, modelling new partnerships and testing ways of working. The results will be documented and used to inform future programmes in Dublin communities. #DCCNeighbourhoods
