Mise Éire

Crawford Art Gallery, Emmet Place

Mise Éire (I am Ireland) addresses key questions of independence and partition, modernity and nationalism, censorship and exclusion. The exhibition, structured across two gallery spaces, presents a selection of masterworks and lesser-known treasures from the Crawford Art Gallery collection. Although derived from the Padraig Pearse poem of the same name, it is organised according to two phrases from W.B. Yeats: 'Romantic Ireland's dead and gone' and 'A terrible beauty is born'.

The exhibition showcases beloved and familiar works - including John Lavery's The Red Rose, Seán Keating's Men of the South, Muriel Brandt's The Breadline, 1916, and Rita Duffy's Segregation - alongside those by Mary Swanzy, May Guinness, Louis le Brocquy, Rita Donagh, Jack. B Yeats, Nano Reid, Gerard Dillon, and Regina Carbayo. Portraits of Éamon De Valera, Constance Markiewicz, Roger Casement, Kate O'Brien, and Frank O'Connor will also feature.

Curated by Michael Waldron
