Born in Cork in 1956, Dorothy Cross is one of the most respected artists working internationally today. Over the past few years she has devoted increasing amounts of time to the development of large-scale public events and projects, most memorably the IMMA-commissioned, Nissan Art Project, Ghost Ship, an ethereally illuminated light-ship which haunted Dublin Bay for a number of weeks in 1998. Cross has participated in numerous group shows internationally including the 1993 Venice Biennial where she represented Ireland; the 1997 Istanbul Biennial and the 1998 Liverpool Biennial. She also took part in the ground-breaking 1994 exhibition Bad Girls in the ICA, London, and the CCA, Glasgow; the 1998 exhibition Mirror Images: Women, Surrealism and Self Representation, which was shown at MIT List Art Center, Boston; Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami; and the San Francisco MOMA. Her work is included in the collections of IMMA, the Norton Collection, Santa Monica; Art Pace Foundation, Texas; the Goldman Sachs Collection, London; and the Tate Collection, London, among others.
Selected works from the show will travel to CAC, Malaga, Spain.
A large publication accompanies the exhibition with essays by Marina Warner, writer and critic, Enrique Juncosa, Director, IMMA, Ralph Rugoff, Director of What If, Institute of Contemporary Arts, San Francisco, USA and Patrick Murphy, Director, Royal Hibernian Academy.
