artists & participants
The new show ‘Visions – Spectacular Art from the Ulster Museum’ will feature major Irish artists of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries including Nathaniel Hone, Roderic O’Conor, Walter Osbourne, Sir John Lavery, Jack B Yeats, Paul Henry, Gerard Dillon, Louis Le Brocquy, Robert Ballagh and Hughie O’Donoghue. One of the museum’s newest acquisitions, Ghost Story by Turner Prize Finalist Willie Doherty, will be on display for the first time as part of an exhibition exploring contemporary Irish art.
The British and international highlights include work by JMW Turner, LS Lowry, Francis Bacon, Jean Dubuffet, Karel Appel, Bridget Riley, Gilbert & George, Graham Sutherland and Patrick Caulfield.
A new publication by the Ulster Museum’s Curators of Fine Art, Dr Eileen Black and Anne Stewart, detailing 100 of the best Irish works of art will be launched alongside the exhibition.
Tim Cooke, Director of National Museums Northern Ireland, says: “This new exhibition will build upon the success of the Sean Scully retrospective in re-establishing the Ulster Museum and Belfast as a venue for exceptional art exhibitions.”
