Curators Lecture / Sean Kissane - Mary Swanzy, Voyages

“Book Now Saturday 3 November 2018, 1.00pm /  Lecture Room, IMMA 
Seán Kissane, Curator, Exhibition discusses the major restrospective Mary Swanzy, Voyages, at IMMA. This is the first retrospective exhibition on the work of iconic artist Mary Swanzy since1968 and offers a major review of Swanzy’s work, demonstrating her early mastery of modernist styles, her wide travels, and idiosyncratic feminism -  themes to be later addressed in a series of talks that reappraise Mary Swanzy’s varied painting practice and its significance within the wider context of modernist developments in Ireland.

Advance booking is essential. 

This talk is programmed in the context of the exhibition Mary Swanzy, Voyages, 26 October 2018 - 17 February 2019. This IMMA initiated exhibition aims to reintroduce our audiences to this artist’s extraordinary achievements and reinstate her as a Modern Irish Master. A fully illustrated monograph accompanies the exhibition with text by Seán Kissane and a biography by Liz Cullinane. The exhibition is presented as part of the IMMA Modern Masters Series.
