Commissioned by The Model, Sligo for broadcast on RTE.
This video will be aired on national television over the duration of the exhibition.
This exciting exhibition brings together forty Jack B Yeats oils from a variety of public and private collections. Many of the works included have been rarely exhibited in Ireland in the past fifty years while others have never been shown publicly before.
Curated by the internationally acclaimed artist, critic and theorist, Brian O’Doherty (aka Patrick Ireland), and Emer McGarry, Curator of The Niland Collection, the show will concentrate on the arc of Yeats artistic practice from his early realistic works to the wildly romantic and apocalyptic visions of his later years. The show will feature work spanning a sixty-year period, from an early Sligo scene completed in 1895, to one of Yeats final works, completed in 1956 the year before he died.
The Outsider runs at The Model until 05 June. Admission is free.
