Crawford Art Gallery, Emmet Place

Sat 23 May - Mon 28 Dec 2020
10am
FREE


Cork, its city and surrounding countryside, has for centuries benefited from the natural maritime haven that is its harbour. Among the largest of its kind in the world, Cork Harbour has been a porous site of settlement and migration, commerce and trade, fortification and incarceration, and holds deep cultural and economic relevance.

Largely drawn from Crawford Art Gallery’s own extensive collection, the exhibition will include works by Willem Van de
