Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane has the foremost collection of modern and contemporary art in Ireland and is believed to be among the first galleries of modern art in the world. The Gallery is also significant for its association with the Nobel laureate W.B. Yeats. The Gallery's prodigious collection which includes works by Renoir, Monet, John Lavery, Walter Osborne, Roderic O'Conor, Mary Swanzy, Norah McGuinness, Seán Scully and Francis Bacon, spans an enormously fruitful period in modern and contemporary art and these lectures will offer opportunities for exploring insightful perspectives on landscape, figuration, portraiture and abstraction.

The lectures will discuss the Gallery's magnificent stained glass artworks by Harry Clarke; the Francis Bacon studio; sculpture by artists including Edgar Degas, John Kindness and others; socially engaged and political art; Irish artists abroad; women artists in the Hugh Lane's collection as well as an opportunity for viewing Impressionist masterpieces in the Gallery spaces.

The course will be delivered by Jessica O'Donnell, Head of Education and Community Outreach at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and experienced and knowledgeable art historians from the Hugh Lane's lecturers: Jessica Fahy, Anne Cormican and Sarah Dunne-O'Connell.

The Cripple of Inishmaan

Gaiety Theatre

Martin McDonagh's work is known and loved by both theatre and film audiences alike. The Cripple of Inishmaan is set on the small Aran Islands community of Inishmaan (Inis Meáin), off the Western Coast of Ireland in 1934, where the inhabitants are excited to learn of a Hollywood film crew's arrival in neighbouring Inishmore (Inis Mór) to make a documentary about life on the islands. 'Cripple' Billy Claven, eager to escape the gossip, poverty and boredom of Inishmaan, vies for a part in the film and to everyone's surprise, the orphan and outcast gets his chance… or so some believe.

This is What Happened

Civic Theatre

Did your dad ever give you lollipops for good behaviour? Would you like me to give you a lollipop now? Would you give me a lollipop now? A trippy triptych of verbal warfare, media spin, and shocking talk-show showdowns. Disarming and alarming This Is What Happened is an unflinching interrogation of objectification. Presented by the highly acclaimed Civic Theatre Company Theatre in Residence, The Corps Ensemble in collaboration with one of The Civic's Associate Artists for 2019: award-winning poet and one of Ireland's most provocative emerging playwrights, Adam Wyeth.
