Exhibition. A collection of acclaimed work by Irish artistSeán Hillen will be shown for the first time in Dublin since the 1990’s. Best known for his Irelantis series, where competing myths and visions cohabit a deliciously witty montage, Hillen is one of the most significant artists of his generation.

As the Irelantis images have come to be seen as the most vivid and emblematic expression of the dreams and anxieties of the Celtic Tiger, his works from the ‘Troubles’ era, based on his own photographs, have become more widely-known internationally and are now studied as masterworks of the medium.

In this exhibition the public will get a rare opportunity to see several of the
delicate almost miniature original collages, together with a selection of a new definitive edition of archival prints.

12th February – 10th April 2010

Opening: Thursday 11th February at 6:30pm. Admission free.
