Institute of Modern Art and Brisbane Festival present

This has been dubbed the decade of centenaries in Ireland: 2013 marked 100 years since the Dublin lockout; this year is a century since the Easter Rising; and 2022 will be the centenary of the Irish Free State.

Reflecting on this historic timeframe, IMA Co-Directors Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh have curated a program especially for Brisbane Festival’s focus on Ireland: recent video works by artists from the Republic and North of Ireland that shift and destabilise accepted versions of the last 100 years of Irish history: Jesse JonesSeamus Harahan, Tom Flanagan and Megs Morley.

This event will also mark the launch of The Other North, the artist book by Dublin-based Jesse Jones, selected to represent Ireland at the 57th Venice Biennale next year.
