About this Event

'Mapping the Magdalene’, talk with Alice Maher and Rachel Fallon

Sunday 23 October, 1pm

Lecture Theatre

We are delighted to have artists Alice Maher and Rachel Fallon in the gallery to discuss their monumental, collaborative, textile work The Map, which will be on display at the gallery from 18-30 October. The Map was originally exhibited at the Rua Red Gallery earlier this year, as part of the gallery's ongoing Magdalene exhibition series. Free, book here or come on day subject to availability.

Rachel Fallon is a visual artist who deals with themes of protection and defence in domestic realms and addresses the topic of motherhood and women’s relationships to society. Her work encompasses sculpture, drawing, photography and performance and is firmly rooted in the processes of making. As well as an individual practice, she regularly collaborates with other artists and collectives; including The Artists’ Campaign to Repeal the Eighth Amendment, Desperate Artwives, Grrrl Zine Fair and the Magdalene Series. The two disparate ways of working feed into one another and are therefore equally important parts of her practice. Her work is held in public and private collections including the Arts Council of Ireland Collection, The National Museum of Ireland and Muzeum Sztuki Nowoczesnej w Warszawie. She lives and works in Ireland.

Alice Maher is one of Ireland’s leading contemporary artists. Since the 1980’s her work has been working within the realms of nature and culture, subversion and transformation, mythology and memory. Her work involves many different media including painting, drawing, sculpture, print, photography and installation. Maher is a prominent figure in the feminist movement in Ireland. She was one of the founding members of the Artists’ Campaign to Repeal the Repeal the Eighth Amendment. Her work is exhibited in the Bones in the Attic exhibition.
