The Borrowing, Cootehill Library & Arts Centre, Co Cavan

Cootehill Library & Arts Centre, Cootehill, Co Cavan
The Borrowing is the result of a partnership between the Cootehill Library & Arts Centre and IMMA, which involved members and friends of the library and arts centre curating an exhibition of work from the Museum’s Collection. The exhibition comprises some 11 works selected by a panel of 13 curators.  The process began with a series of discussions and visits to IMMA.  The panel explored the curatorial process and the work involved in selecting, presenting and publicising an exhibition.  Artists include Louis le Brocquy, Caroline McCarthy, Paul Nugent, Paula Rego and James McKenna.
