ODYSSEYS marks the centenary of James Joyce’s modernist masterpiece Ulysses, which was published in Paris on 2 February 1922. The exhibition offers an exploration of journeys through art, from Ancient Greece to 1920s Samoa, with a special focus on Joyce’s own often overlooked relationship with Cork.

Connecting with Joyce’s earlier novel, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916), the exhibition follows Stephen Dedalus’ journey to Cork and his semi-autobiographical experiences there.
