Eithne Jordan: Mise En Scène, Part II

Crawford Art Gallery, Emmet Place

Thu 13 Oct 2022 - Sun 08 Jan 2023 (note: this event has already taken place)
10am
FREE


Coupled with Mise en scène, Part I at the Highlanes Gallery, Drogheda, this exhibition takes the form of an intervention in our beautiful and historic Sculpture Galleries.

Exhibited among the gallery’s collection of Canova Casts, Mise en scène, Part II comprises twenty small works by Eithne Jordan that respond to museum interiors in Ireland, France, and the United States.

This series of exquisite miniature oils on board is a new departure for the artist. As Jordan notes:

‘I like the idea of doing a show in a space where a conversation can happen between my paintings and works from the collection that are on display. Here there are all kinds of echoes and connections with the Canova Casts and the sculptures represented in my paintings…’
