The Map by Alice Maher and Rachel Fallon, and We Are The Map by Sinéad Gleeson and Stephen Shannon at The Hugh Lane, 18 October to 30 October 2022.
The Map and We Are The Map was originally commissioned by Rua Red as part of the Magdalene Series, curated by Maolíosa Boyle, and resonates strongly with themes explored by artists in The Hugh Lane's current exhibition Bones in the Attic.
This special project The Map @ Hugh Lane Gallery, curated by Jessica O’Donnell Head of Education and Community Outreach, will be accompanied by a series of discursive talks by artists Alice Maher and Rachel Fallon as well as Rua Red director Maolíosa Boyle.
The Magdalene series at Rua Red features the work of five of Ireland’s leading artists Amanda Coogan, Jesse Jones, Grace Dyas, Alice Maher, and Rachel Fallon. They were commissioned by Rua Red in 2018 to create work in response to the history and legacy of Mary Magdalene and her association with the incarceration and institutionalisation of women, and to propose a new world uncurbed by religion, political, or societal doctrine. It is a world viewed through the lens of contemporary feminism and feminist theology.
