Naked Truth: The Nude in Irish Art (13 July - 28 October, 2018)

This major exhibition surveys the nude and the naked body as created and depicted by Irish artists. Focusing on interconnecting themes of political allegory, domestic intimacy, gender politics, artistic training, censorship, sexuality and display, the exhibition features work from historic Sheela ni-gigs to artists including Francis Bacon, Dorothy Cross, Robert Fagan, Amanda Coogan, Mainie Jellet and Brian Maguire.  

Curated by William Laffan and Dawn Williams
