John Byrne: Would You Die for Ireland

The film work Would You Die for Ireland by the Irish artist John Byrne is being shown at IMMA in a collaboration with the Saint Patrick’s Festival. This work was commissioned for the Dearcadh exhibition at Kilmainham Gaol in 2003, as part of the Robert Emmet commemoration of that year. A humorous piece, it involves the artist conducting a series of impromptu interviews with pedestrians, which include the Taoiseach Bertie Ahearn, on the streets of Dublin. The work examines notions of patriotism and nationalism.

A publication will accompany the exhibition, produced by the Saint Patrick’s Festival.
