Irish Art 1929-2020 edited by Catherine Marshall & Yvonne Scott

The Edge Of Europe Postcards From Mosney How to be a Model Citizen and Citizen featured in this publication

Irish Art 1920-2020: Perspectives on change edited by Catherine Marshall and Yvonne Scott, is a generously-illustrated book in which eleven authors examine different aspects of Irish art through the hundred years or so since independence. During this time, art in Ireland has borne witness to unprecedented social and political transformation, and this book of essays considers how some of the established perspectives in Irish visual culture were challenged and represented during this time.

Art in Ireland has been shaped by a range of factors – the country’s geographic position, post-colonial history, political upheaval, religious environment – and of course the complex interconnections both within and beyond the country, prompted by shifting patterns within society – identities, migration, technology, for example – as well as the artists’ evolving engagement with the wider world.

This is not a linear story; each chapter explores a particular aspect of art, how it reflected the interests of artists, the environments in which they worked both in Ireland and abroad, and how subjects and methods changed over time. The extensive richness of the last century or so, as well as the diversity, creativity and originality of the artists means that no single text can ever be comprehensive, and this one makes no such claims. Rather, his book, however, is a kind of map; it does not pretend to fully represent the entire narrative but may provide some useful clues to negotiating parts of it, or at least the basis for further exploration and debate.

Lanscape and Environment In Contemporary Irish Art – Yvonne Scott 2023

Anthony Haughey featured in Yvonne Scott’s new book. This book identifies a representative selection of compelling and intriguing artworks by a range of around one hundred of the most challenging and vibrant artists from, or working in, Ireland or whose work addresses Irish landscapes and environments. This field of representation has never been more vital and expansive than it is now in the first quarter of the twenty-first century in the face of climate change.

No Place Like Home, The Domestic in Irish Photography 20 July – 2 September 2023

No Place Like Home

The Domestic in Irish Photography

2 September – 2 September 2023

Michael, Mosney Direct Provision Centre © Anthony Haughey 2005

As a people with a long history of migration and dispossession, the notion of home is a deeply emotional one in Ireland. Although evoking a nostalgic sense of warmth and security, the lived reality of domestic life is often at odds with idealised representations.

This exhibition considers what ‘home’ looks like in Ireland today and how it reflects wider societal changes.No Place Like Home brings together work by leading established and early career artists who take us beyond the front door to reveal their experiences of home and domestic life, offering diverse perspectives on family, migration, mental health and economic disparity in Ireland.

This exhibition is being presented against the background of Ireland’s current housing crisis, with secure and affordable accommodation beyond reach for a large segment of the population. These artists propose new ways to visualise the complex realities of home and housing, placing these issues in a broader historical context, interrogating the distance between our notional ideas of home and the lived experience, and showing how the family unit is being redefined.

Hugh Lane Gallery and National Museum of Ireland, Portrait of a Nation: Art, Politics and the Anglo-Irish Treaty, 22-23 April 2022

Portrait of a Nation: Art, Politics and the Anglo-Irish Treaty

This conference, organised jointly by the Education departments of Hugh Lane Gallery and the National Museum of Ireland , takes its inspiration from the ‘Studio & State’exhibition, itself a collaboration between these two institutions, marking the centenary of the signing and ratification of the Anglo-Irish Treaty.

This conference aims to explore the intersection between art and politics in the context of the birth of the new Irish state. The event brings together a broad range of speakers – historians, artists, writers and curators – to share, discuss and debate themes from the background to the signing of the Treaty in London in 1921 to its legacy and impact on ordinary Irish people; from questions around memory and trauma to the role of the artist as witness to history.


11.45am – 1.00pm The Artist as Witness

Photo Museum Ireland, In Our Own Image: The Politics of Place, 25 June – 3 September

In Our Own Image: The Politics of Place

The third chapter of the Gallery’s year-long In Our Own Image exhibition programme, The Politics of Place is a landmark survey exhibition that undertakes a critical reframing of the way Irish life has been represented through photography. It addresses how photographers have engaged with one of the defining obsessions of our national identity – the notion of place.

For a people so often uprooted and dispossessed, the identification of Irishness with place, with home and the ownership of land, even with the state itself, carries incredible weight. The photographers in this exhibition use place as a way of speaking to and about national identity, the spaces and the landscapes we share, the ground that we hold in common and the boundaries that divide us.

By mapping these contested territories, they consider how the relationship between place and Irishness, broadly defined, has been transformed, addressing the profound changes that have reshaped Irish society over the last four decades, from the decline of the church to the impact of globalisation, through to ongoing crises around housing, migration, and the environment.

Moving away from traditional documentary towards more socially-engaged and inclusive ways of thinking about the medium, the selected works by emerging and established artists featured in The Politics of Place touch on the most pressing issues around Irish identity and history, coming to terms with the legacies of the past and facing the challenges of the future.

Authorship and Representation in Collaborative Filmmaking

Filmmaking is an inherently collaborative endeavour, yet authorship is firmly situated with the director. In filmmaking processes with community participants, where content is generated together, questions of authorship are more fluid. How do artists negotiate the ethical question of representation while managing aesthetic considerations within a collective process? This intimate workshop (maximum 10 attendees), delivered by artist Anthony Haughey, will examine questions of authorship and representation in community based filmmaking, facilitating group-wide discussion and sharing of the topics covered. Participants should have a project (in any art form) in mind to enable full participation. Access to the internet is required. This workshop is delivered in partnership with Sligo County Council Arts Service (Invitation to Collaboration Scheme).

How to apply

Submit a statement of interest as to why you wish to participate, including projects you wish to share (200 words max) plus a biography (200 words max) to with the subject line “Authorship and Representation workshop application”.  The deadline for applications is 12th November, 12 noon. Successful applicants will be informed on the 16th November.

Untitled: A Film Trilogy, Commissioned by Fingal County Council’s Infrastructure Public Art Programme




This trilogy of short films reflects on the impact of global migration from the point of view of young people in County Fingal with a particular focus on Balbriggan. This public art commission explores ideas of how cultural identities are formed and represented in the public realm. 

In this socially engaged production young migrant youth have collaborated and negotiated every aspect of filmmaking from script writing to film treatment and choice of location. At the end of this process the same young people assumed the role of non-professional actors as they claim ownership of the narrative. Each sequence and film follows a durational socially engaged method taking four months or more to complete. 

The films explore the concerns expressed by young multi-ethnic youth growing up in a time of rapid change in Ireland and internationally. The research for each film refers to historical antecedents from Civil Rights in the ‘60s to the most recent Black Lives Matter movement in 2020. Throughout this discursive process and dialogical encounters new discoveries are made and incorporated into each script. For example, in the short film Can You Hear Us Now? A group of school students generate a claim for equality within the context of xenophobic Europe. In this sequence the language and narratives of African slave, Frederick Douglas who traveled to Ireland in 1845 and performed many public speeches on emancipation and freedom were carefully and sensitively appropriated and reworked. The resulting displaced conversation between three young women from Lusk Community School evokes Brecht’s alienation effect to ‘make the familiar strange’ in order to provoke a social-critical audience response.

The second film is set in the drawing room of 18th Century Newbridge House in Donabate, once owned by Frances Power Cobbe who was an Irish writer, social reformer, anti-vivisection activist and a leading women’s suffrage campaigner. In this sequence a group of young women who call themselves My Sisters Keeper reclaim their own place in history surrounded by oil paintings of colonial masters.

In the final short a group of young men engage in a conversation about what is at stake for their generation as they reflect on the historical speeches and claims for civil rights and equality espoused by Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and many others. The film is also a homage to Samuel Beckett’s seminal play Waiting for Godot. Waiting is akin to a ‘permanent state of crisis’ where waiting for change to come is testing the patience of many generations of young people, especially in light of recent events and the Black Lives Matter global protests. 

The films are currently in post-production and will be completed and assembled together with a commissioned animated credits sequence to honour the 75 people who contributed to this experimental trilogy. There will also be a 48 sheet billboard film poster campaign. Each of the three films will be represented by a specially designed film poster by Detail Design.

Hidden Histories and Landscape Enigmas, Liz Wells, 2019

Photographers investigate places, research detail and explore ways of conveying some sense of the atmosphere and significance of particular environments. Photographs reveal that which can be seen, their stillness inviting attention to detail that might otherwise be overlooked. Yet landscapes may offer few clues or traces of people and socio-political histories that characterize sites yet are not necessarily marked visually. Pictures evoke personal and cultural memory through suggesting experiences of place that transcend the limitations of visual documentation. Critically reflecting on photographic engagement with battlefields and sites of execution, this paper considers pictorial strategies intended to unearth hidden histories. It evaluates photo-methodologies and approaches to story- telling deployed by artist-photographers seeking to reveal historical sediments and, through referencing that which is known but may not be perceived, to invoke reflection on legacies of conflict. Examples include: Bleda y Rosa, Battlefields; Chloe Dewe Matthews, Shot at Dawn; David Farrell, Innocent Landscapes; Ori Gersht, The Clearing; Anthony Haughey, Disputed Territory; Bart Michiels, The Course of History. It is suggested that, despite ways in which vistas veil histories and photographs prioritize the visible, through the inter-relation of research, reflection and aesthetic tactics photography can suggest hidden histories and offer insights into landscape enigmas.

CITATION: Liz Wells (2019) HIDDEN HISTORIES AND LANDSCAPE ENIGMAS, photographies, 12:2, 177-193, DOI: 10.1080/17540763.2019.1582434

Go Down Moses, Museum of Contemporary Photography Chicago, Jul 18 — Sep 29, 2019

I am showing work from the Disputed Territory series in a exhibition called, Go Down Moses a catalogue of the exhibition is available from MOCP. The exhibition includes luminaries such as Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Andy Warhol and Robert Adams.

Go Down Moses presents a reinterpretation of the MoCP’s permanent collection that can be understood as a visual tone poem of contemporary America, exploring elemental themes of movement, chaos, freedom, and hope. In doing so, Cole uses the photographic archive to interweave the past and present, suggesting an aesthetic approach to understanding the current psyche.

He writes: Questions of liberation tend to interleave the present and the past. What is happening now is instinctively assessed with the help of what happened before, and both despair and hope are tutored by memory. The old Negro spiritual “Go Down Moses,” beloved by Harriet Tubman and generations since, sought to link the black American freedom quest with the story of ancient Israel’s struggle to be free of Pharaoh’s bondage.

Through an intuitive sequence of photographs, in images soft and loud, this exhibition proposes a redefinition: that hope has nothing to do with mood or objective facts, but is rather a form of hospitality offered by those who are tired to those who are exhausted. More information available here

Crisis and the Visual Arts in Ireland, article by Pat Cooke in Études irlandaises, 40-2.


This paper explores contemporary responses to crisis in Ireland as refracted through visual arts practice. The key question that will be pursued is not the primarily philosophical one of “what is the nature of crisis?” but the situational one of “how might a sense of crisis manifest itself through the practice of a visual artist?” In attempting to answer this question it is hoped some light can be shed on other questions that appear to have gained greater urgency since the pivotal moment in 2008 when the economic ground shifted under the Irish people. Do artists have an obligation to engage with politics? Can some of the underpinning rationales for artist engagement, particularly in the field of relational aesthetics, empower artists to meet expectations that their work can, or should, be capable of decisive interventions at historical moments of crisis? A related objective is to ground a theoretical understanding of the nature of crisis in the evolution of an artist’s work, to gain some sense of its temporal manifestation in the life-long, everyday practice of making art.

The two artists I have engaged with to examine these questions, Deirdre O’Mahony and Anthony Haughey, were selected with a clear understanding that any number of other artists might just as equally have suited. The reason for the choice is that the author is familiar with the work of both over time and understands both, in variable ways, to be committed to exploring the interaction of political and aesthetic values in their practice.

Field Notes from the Border # 1 -3 Touring exhibition Gallery of Photography, RCC Letterkenny & Nerve Centre Derry

Field Notes from the Border presents new work by contemporary artists working along the border in Ireland. A series of cross border exhibitions and engagement programmes curated by Gallery of Photography respond to the anxiety raised by the prospect of the imposition of a hard border and the unfolding events brought about by Brexit. Field Notes from the Border #1 opens to the public in Gallery of Photography on Thursday 7 March at 2pm. The official launch and engagement programme will take place on Thursday 21 March. Exhibition continues until 7 April.

Anthony Haughey’s exhibition and film installations respond to the perceived imminent threat of Brexit to peace and stability in Ireland. New video works, photographs and texts reflect on Ireland’s ‘seamless’ border and consider how function, meaning, and effect are often in a state of flux. As WT Mitchell observes, it is ‘a process of human interventions, intersubjective relations and ideologies that determines our understanding of the landscape.’

Infrastructure Public Art Programme 2018 – 2021 Awards 9 new Commissions for Fingal

Announcement – Infrastructure Public Art Programme 2018 – 2021 Awards 9 new Commissions for Fingal

Press Release

Monday 25 June 2018

Fingal County Council’s Public Art Programme 2018-2021 announces 9 major commissions to line up of artists. Five of the nine commissions awarded under Infrastructure – Fingal’s Public Art Programme 2018-2012 were given to artists from Fingal.

The art programme which is predominantly funded through the Government’s Per Cent for Art scheme is valued at €400,000 and is co-curated by Fingal County Council’s Public Art Co-ordinator, Caroline Cowley and Independent Curator, Aisling Prior. In 2017, they conducted a countywide consultation to deliver the most appropriate creative brief for emerging artists to respond to which resulted in nine being awarded nationally.

There were almost 300 submissions to the open call and three selection phases have been conducted for the Infrastructure commissions. The selection processes featured  the expertise of curators, Aisling Prior and Caroline Cowley, academics, Declan Long and Valerie Connor, local public representatives and a range of specialist staff drawn from Fingal County Council’s Community, Heritage, Cultural and Planning departments. The selection processes resulted in nine commissions being awarded to some of Ireland’s most exciting and respected emerging and established artists, all of whom demonstrate an inspiring energy and unique imagination as to how they will make innovative and challenging artworks over the coming three years.

The nine commissions will unfold throughout the county under two categories: “Public Art Awards” and “Co-Productions”.

The “Public Art Awards” projects demonstrate a high level of artistic excellence, innovation and ambition for Fingal. The “Co-Productions” category includes artists who work collaboratively with specific Fingal community groups or a new community of interest.

A third aspect of the Infrastructure commissioning programme sees artists making artworks for and in the built environment. Internationally acclaimed artist Corban Walker will be making a sculptural installation for the landscaped areas in the new housing development at Hamilton Park in Dublin 15.

Artists selected under the “Public Art Awards” are John Byrne, Sarah Browne and Adam Gibney (Fingal) and under the “Co- Productions” category we selected, Declan Gorman (Fingal), Anthony Haughey and the Migrant Collective (Balbriggan), Michelle Hall (Blanchardstown ), Gareth Kennedy, Yvonne McGuinness (Malahide) and Aoife Dunne (Blanchardstown).

The commissions are across many contemporary artforms including theatre, film, virtual reality and digital art, performance, engaged and expanded practice and literature. Each of the art commissions will align with local communities in new and meaningful ways and will engage with current issues from across the county, to deliver a rich profile of Fingal as it is now.

Mayor of Fingal, Cllr Anthony Lavin said: “I’m delighted to see five talented artists from Fingal being included in the selection process for the Infrastructure Art Programme. It is a testament to the value of the supports developed and that have been put in place by the Fingal County Council’s Arts Office over the past number of years.”

Chief Executive of Fingal County Council, Paul Reid said: “Arts are an extremely important part to Fingal’s culture and identity. This programme is an investment into the talent and creativity that exists across our county and I am delighted to see it being supported and developed.”

Forum, Transcultural Dialogues, Rua Red and Civic Theatre 11-13 April 2018

Forum is part of a cultural diversity research project commissioned by Rua Red and Civic Theatre. Its objective is to explore the cultural richness of migrant communities living throughout South Dublin County. Envisaged as a stepping stone towards a long-term process of connection, collaboration and engagement, Forum invites community leaders and arts sector providers to engage in a series of transcultural dialogues to learn from each other in mutual exchange. Forum aims to identify barriers to access and provision that may exist or inhibit ethnic groups from originating or participating in art and cultural activities in South Dublin County arts venues. Central to this event is an understanding of cultural diversity as a plurality of identities, described in the UNESCO Universal Declaration on cultural diversity as ‘an adaptive process [with] a capacity for expression, creation and innovation’.

An Act of Hospitality can only be Poetic, Highlanes Gallery, Drogheda 2 May-30 June 2018


Samuel Laurence Cunnane, Stephanie Deady, Willie Doherty, Vanessa Donoso Lopez, Anthony Haughey, Dragana Jurisic, Ronan McCrea, Isabel Nolan, Mairead O’hEocha, Kathy Prendergast, Tamsin Snow & Sarah Tynan.

Inspired by a quote by Jacques Derrida, this exhibition curated by Linda Shevlin and Aoife Ruane seeks to present works that respond to themes of hospitality, identity, friendship and the multitude of journeys and conflicts encountered to attain them. In response to ongoing and globally transformational international events, Bealtaine, the national May-time festival celebrating creativity as we age has adopted the theme of hospitality, hosting and welcome as a broad and multi-layered festival theme. The deeper undertones to the principle of hospitality are underlined by historical interpretations of the concept, including Jacques Derrida’s philosophical work on the Ethics of Hospitality.

21st Century Ireland in 21 Artworks: Settlement, Anthony Haughey

In a new series of articles, critic and broadcaster Cristín Leach selects 21 artworks for RTÉ Culture that define Modern Ireland.

Number Five: Anthony Haughey – Settlement (2011)

Anthony Haughey’s photographs of half-finished houses and abandoned residential building-sites have a near-supernatural, spiritual glow about them. Shot in low sun, as part of a series entitled Settlement in 2011, these images capture empty homes sitting like unconsummated promises at the end of overgrown tracks edged by mounds of earth and rubble, cleared aside but never levelled.  A flare of light hits a window or gable end, suggesting a kind of poignant beauty, but what is really on offer is a bleak reminder of the physical and emotional residue of the Celtic Tiger building boom and bust. Ghost estates continue to haunt the nation’s notion of home. Haughey’s Settlement photos are images of hope and loss, what was done and left undone.

Anthony Haughey’s photographs of half-finished houses and abandoned residential building-sites have a near-supernatural quality.

INHABITING THE BAGEION: architecture as critique, a collaboration with Athens Biennale 2017

“INHABITING THE BAGEION: architecture as critique” comes from a collective that emerged from a developing relationship between Irish and Athenian-based artists, architects, urban thinkers and urban activists. We come from multiple fields in the arts but all share an interest in exploring alternative models of teaching, practice, and processes within architecture through exhibition and workshops involving a wider public. The project offers a response to current socio-political issues through architecture – and at the same time – explores the practice of critique itself. This spatial critique argues for alternative modes of knowledge and knowing (embodied, sensory, instinctual, gestural and performative) to enter into the field of critical and sensory discourse, and help shape a more responsive understanding of interpreting experience within a new mode of architectural critique.

The exhibition presents architecture as being part of a social and cultural collective process through a series of curated spaces over four storeys of the defunct hotel: Firstspace present’s alternative models of teaching architectural practice as a mechanism of social inclusion and new forms of social engagement. Secondspace presents a series of visual art films by prominent Irish and International artists (Anthony Haughey; Mark Curran; Lina Selander; Harun Farocki; Megs Morley and Tom Flanagan) where architecture appears to carry the burden of historic events in the absence of any human accountability. Thirdspace presents an ongoing ethnographic research project by Eve Olney that focuses on the agency of the architect within a participatory architectural process. The work centres on the relationship between an Activist/Architecture group, Urban React and the original inhabitants of a 1930s refugee housing block in Athens as a means of exploring the cultural value of habitation. Fourthspace is an open creative space of workshops and events led by Irish artist Seamus Nolan collaborating with Irish, Greek and Swiss squatters/activists/ artists/ architects/ musicians that explores Squatting/Occupation as a means of cultural and social production. During the two-week exhibition Nolan and his team will design and produce items of furniture from ‘Lists’ of requested items from occupations and squats around Athens and attempt to initiate ongoing programmes.

This exhibition is in collaboration with the Athens Biennale.

Exhibition Duration: 14th – 26th October, 2017 | 12:00 – 20:00
Fourthspace Workshops: 15th – 24th October, 2017 | 12:00 – 18:00
Venue: Bageion Hotel | 18 Omonoia Square, Athens

Post Picturesque: Photographing Ireland, Rochester Arts Centre, Minnesota 29 June – 10 September 2017

Post Picturesque: Photographing Ireland, Rochester Arts Centre, Minnesota 29 June – 10 September 2017

Ireland beckons tourists with its near-mythic rural beauty, even in post-Celtic Tiger, previous economically robust times. To many outside the island, Ireland’s identity continues to be entrenched in the romantic vision of idyllic, rustic people and places. Tourists are fed photos of bucolic green fields, stone walls, ruins, grazing beasts and cottages that perpetuate practices of the picturesque, which pushes the real, contemporary experience of Irish life out of view. Defying the inherent natural beauty of Ireland, Irish photographers embrace the challenge of representing a new, emboldened Irish identity through quizzical, charming, daring and truthful photography.

This exhibition presents exciting new work by cutting-edge Irish artists, created with critical intelligence, a keen sense of history, compositional vigor, and lively humor still deeply embedded in place.  Each artist grapples with the challenge of visually defining a landscape that retains many features of Ireland’s agrarian past, even its sectarian conflict, as well as more modern concerns of turbulent economic forces, farming methods, European Union regulations, real estate development, and lifestyle choices which effect Ireland’s rural experience and urban challenges.

Playing between the lines of picturesque and practical, Jill Quigley’s Rural Fluorescent series actively engages the abandoned, overlooked and unexciting, caught in the drama of the unexpected. Questioning the notions of beauty associated with representing landscape, Miriam O’Connor intercedes through whimsical display of the domestic, while David Farrell disrupts through digging into the dark history contained in the land. Paul Gaffney descends deep into the dark forest, entry to a hidden current of a Gothic underworld, mysterious and myopic, both beautiful and dangerous. Similarly, plunged into Paul Coyle’s painterly Lovely Water series, the viewer bounces on the waves, there in the same spot, Dublin’s famous Forty Foot cove, witness to change in light and form.  Anthony Haughey and Martin Cregg explore the sublime and beautiful potential of abandoned relics of Celtic Tiger overdevelopment. Two more photographers consider the living and working potential of everday alternatives created by women running farms in Anna Rackard’s Farmers and by new age, utopian seeking commune in the West of Ireland in Ruby Wallis’ Unfixed Landscape. The Irish picturesque, under the postcolonial critique, is associated with domination and control by outsiders. By  contrast, this exhibition celebrates Irish artists’ experience of their own land and their inventive approaches to picturing place.

The Politics of Images – FIF_BH 2017 – International Festival of Photography of BH

UNresolved video installation

Anthony Haughey Artist talk video during the festival 

The importance of understanding the role of images in political constructions is directly related to the possibility of criticizing and re-creating them. The emergence of more balanced symbolic systems depends on political and power relations, both ethical and plural. The Moving Images Program intents to reflect about the many creative possibilities presented by artists working with the nonstatic state of the image, in the intersection between photography, video, animation, animated GIF, cinema and new technologies. 
These works will be shown at the FIF-BH Main Exhibition 2017.

Post Picturesque: Photographing Ireland, Perlman Museum, Minnesota, March 3–May 7, 2017

Post-Picturesque: Photographing Ireland presents nine accomplished artists, resident in the Republic and Northern Ireland, who respond to the famously picturesque Irish rural landscape with new aesthetic and critical approaches. This ambitious exhibition, curated by Perlman Teaching Museum Director Laurel Bradley, introduces the following lens-based practitioners to American audiences — many for the first time: Gary Coyle, Martin Cregg, David Farrell, Paul Gaffney, Anthony Haughey, Miriam O’Connor, Jill Quigley, Anna Rackard and Ruby Wallis.

Anthony Haughey, photographer: “Ireland in Crisis”

Anthony Haughey, one of the nine featured artists in the Perlman Teaching Museum exhibition Post-Picturesque: Photographing Ireland, will launch the exhibition with Ireland in Crisis: Post Celtic Tiger Photography, on Friday March 3, 7 pm Weitz 236 with opening reception in the museum to follow.  Haughey is a distinguished photographer and teacher (at Dublin Institute of Technology) whose photographic and film work focuses on issues of identity, tensions around borderlands, and contemporary social, political pressures related to changing geography. This talk will illuminate his Settlements project, which explores the new “ruins” left behind after the collapse of the real estate market and the “Celtic Tiger” economic boom of the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Anthony Haughey brings an artist’s eye to the task of representing empty housing estates, which he says had become a “visual cliché of post Celtic Tiger Ireland.” By contrast with banal news images of “ghost estates,” Haughey’s ruins, produced between dusk and dawn, are rendered with rhetorical grandeur: “The combination of darkness, long exposures, and artificial light draws attention to the destruction of the natural environment, a direct result of overdevelopment. Stalled building activity stands frozen in time, a reminder of disastrous laissez-faire capitalism and planning legislation.”

Just as the compositions—glowing spectacles of forlorn residential clusters and jagged unfinished walls—are theatrical, Haughey’s accounts of prowling the terrain are full of drama and strange pleasure: “Climbing over these temporary walls and walking into the darkness instills fear and awe, a sublime terra infirma.” Ultimately, the photographer defines these abandoned sites as places of collective mourning. These landscapes are not simply “a recording of what is in front of the camera lens, [they are] a reframing of collective memory/history to encourage a critical dialogue with the spectator, where memory is inextricably bound with these violated landscapes, a constant and painful reminder of economic failure and future indebtedness.”

The dystopian sublime of Settlement could paralyze an audience with shock and awe. Haughey, though, suggests ways forward via a creative collaboration with architects and architecture students. Drawn proposals for repurposing such urban eyesores as the abandoned Anglo Irish Bank headquarters site in the Dublin Docklands are a call to action and community spirit: “It is our collective responsibility to reimagine how the ruins of the present offer a unique opportunity to reimagine how we want to live in the future.”

Periodical Review 20/16 Pallas Projects/Studios, 25/11/16—21/01/17

Periodical Review 20/16

20 years of Irish contemporary art: Four perspectives
Selected by Brian Duggan, Sarah Glennie, Jenny Haughton & Declan Long

Aquinas, Callan Workhouse Union, Nina Canell & Robin Watkins, Dorothy Cross, Willie Doherty, Douglas Hyde Gallery, Fergus Feehily, Four Gallery, Anthony Haughey, Patrick Jolley & Reynold Reynolds, Des Kenny, Aileen Lambert, Clare Langan, Metropolitan Complex, Michael McLoughlin, Isabel Nolan, Seamus Nolan, Emer O’Boyle, Margaret O’Brien, Deirdre O’Mahony

An artwork, like a book, is not made up of individual words on a page each of which with a meaning, but is instead “caught up in a system of references to other books, other texts, other sentences” †

Periodical Review is an annual survey of recent Irish art, selected in collaboration with invited curators from around Ireland. Not a group exhibition per se, Periodical Review is a discursive action, with the gallery as a magazine-like layout of images that speak (the field talking to itself). Each year, Pallas Projects invite a number of peers – artists, writers, educators, curators – to review and nominate a number of art practices, selected via an editorial meeting. Such a review-type exhibition within Irish art practice acts to revisit, to be a reminder, a critical appraisal and consolidation of ideas and knowledge; to facilitate and encourage collaboration, crossover and debate.

Periodical Review 20/16  – which coincides with 20 years of Pallas Projects – sees four invited selectors survey key events, exhibitions, moments and artworks from the past 20 years to the present. The chosen practices emphasise the recent developments in contemporary art in Ireland, a period of new engagement with international practices, an increase in visiting artists, curators and speakers, with Irish curators and educators taking up major positions overseas, and Irish artists being showcased around the world. The works display and demonstrate a new confidence and energy that emerged in the visual arts during the 1990s and 2000s, by individuals and institutions. A period that included the international conferences such as Cork Caucus, 2005; the emergence of redesigned spaces such as Project, Temple Bar Gallery & Studios, and The Model; international art fair profile for Irish artists through galleries such as Kerlin and mother’s tankstation; new major regional galleries such as The Glucksman and VISUAL; critical publications such as Third Text’s ‘Ireland Issue’ edited by Lucy Cotter, or Paul O’Neill’s ‘Curating Subjects’; and acclaimed Irish pavilions at the Venice Biennale.

In looking at self-organised exhibitions, off-site projects, commercial gallery and museum shows over this 20-year period, Periodical Review 20/16 aims to share a spectrum of practices, creating dialogue and critical reflection to help develop and support Irish contemporary art as a whole; and to act as an accessible survey of contemporary art for a wider audience, showing an expanded experience of art practices from around the country.

Manifesto 2016


HD Video with sound, 18 mins 30 sec

Anthony Haughey 2016

“We need to go back and recover the promise of a real republic that would be built on citizenship and that would reject as outrageous in a republic the kind of radical individualism epitomised in that ugly statement of Michael McDowell’s that inequality is needed for the stability of society”.

– Michael D Higgins’, final Dáil speech, delivered on 25 January 2011, before his inauguration as President of Ireland.

Ireland’s 1916 Proclamation was written by a group of ideologically conflicted leaders of the Easter Rising, the most critical event in the shaping of Ireland’s modern history.  From this source sprang a War of Independence that culminated in the setting up of a twenty-six-county Free State and a six-county Northern Ireland within the Union. The political sovereignty hard-won over these years was enshrined in the declaration of a Republic in 1949. But that sovereignty was seen to be compromised following the economic crisis of 2008 when a troika of managers from the EU and IMF arrived in the Republic to oversee a financial bailout for the country. The centenary of the Rising occurs only three years after the troika’s departure in 2013, raising many difficult questions about how the country measures up to the dreams and aspirations in the 1916 Proclamation of Independence. The Proclamation was controversially a call to arms, with the promise of an egalitarian Republic that was never fully realised. A century later Ireland is the most globalised economy in the world. Manifesto raises important questions for so many people living in Ireland today forced to live in ‘a permanent state of crisis’ while multinational corporations maintain huge profits.

Four writers – Pearse, Connolly, Plunkett and McDonagh – were central to the Rising. This ensured that art and culture were at the heart of the vision projected for an independent Ireland. Manifesto invokes historical and contemporary literature to reflect that fact that the Easter Rising was also an important cultural revolution and marked the emergence of Modernism.

EXCAVATION Limerick City Gallery 23rd January – 13th March 2015














23rd January – 13th March 2015

Anthony Haughey is an artist who explores contested territories in Ireland and Europe. In a premier for Limerick City Gallery of Art, Haughey returned to Bosnia to make a new film. UNresolved reflects on the twentieth anniversary of genocide in Srebrenica. Haughey presents a haunting memorial to the victims of the Bosnian war of 1992-95. The title relates to the UN Security Resolution 819, passed on the 16th April 1993 declaring Srebrenica as a ‘safe’ area for Muslim refugees – the prelude to what was the largest act of genocide in Europe since the holocaust. Following Haughey’s earlier work in Bosnia, between 1998-2002, he gained exclusive access to buildings and atrocity sites in Serb controlled territory, areas that have hitherto been off limits. Breaking the silence of this film is a recording of eyewitness accounts of massacre victims collated from archives such as Human Rights Watch and also directly from people encountered on research visits to Bosnia, with accounts of resistance and survival, testimonies from young Dutch soldiers who were serving in Srebrenica and conflicting accounts from UN personnel and Serb military commanders. The film explores ideological and political narratives informing this emerging and contested history. As Walter Benjamin stated, ‘articulating the past historically does not mean recognizing it ‘the way it really was.’ It means appropriating a memory as it flashes up in a moment of danger’ (1990).

Soundings – Collective memories of the sea, Inaugural Exhibition at dlr Lexicon Gallery 13.12.14 – 24.1.15

Soundings – Collective memories of the sea
13 December – 24 January
dlr LexIcon Gallery, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin

dlr LexIcon this weekend celebrates the opening of its inaugural exhibition, Soundings, in its state of the art, brand new municipal gallery.

Soundings is curated by artist Michael McLoughlin with thanks to Dún Laoghaire RNLI lifeboat crewmembers. It features the work of six artists – Gary Coyle, Anthony Haughey, Emma Johnston, Sabina MacMahon, Julie Merriman and Lisa Reburn.

Introducing the exhibition, curator Michael McLoughlin said, “Soundings explores the relationships between Dún Laoghaire, the sea and its people through artworks, talks and workshops. It brings together six artists with connections to Dún Laoghaire who have investigated maritime histories, memories, testimonies and archives. Soundings talks, workshops and performances will offer further opportunities to explore and engage with the local maritime themes. Throughout this exhibition there are themes that ebb and flow between the work of the six artists — the connections between the local, the town and the port.”

Soundings events will feature a performance of Gary Coyle’s At Sea, a spoken word performance based on the artist’s daily swimming diaries and photographs (15 Jan), a special screening of A Tribute to Sound, a short film by Simone Corr which commemorates the decommissioning of the foghorn from our coastline (21 Jan) and Prospect, a video piece by artist Anthony Haughey exploring migrant journeys from sub-Saharan Africa to Europe (24 Jan).

To explore and celebrate Dún Laoghaire RNLI, the crewmembers have created a video piece and a series of photographs, these can be viewed in the project room of dlr LexIcon. There has been a lifeboat present in Dún Laoghaire since 1803 with the RNLI establishing a station in 1861. Today the RNLI operate two lifeboats in the harbour and in 2013 alone rescued 67 people.

Opening day events on Saturday 13 December include a curatorial tour by Michael McLoughlin and crewmembers from the RNLI, a TOG workshop where participants will learn how to create and experience a Skull Radio, and families are invited to join in on the fun and help create a maritime frieze on the windows of the project room in dlr LexIcon.

Motivational Deficit… at the Crawford Art Gallery, Cork features the work of eight contemporary Irish artists, whom within their art-making practice have marked the pervasive nature of how recession and austerity has crept, and sometimes smashed, into our lives. The works in the exhibition, created within the last five years, offer an antidote to the phenomenon of motivational deficit* – the perceived public disaffection with political and social engagement – where society’s relationship with the governmental policies that controls contemporary society is perceived as externally binding not internally compelling. Motivational Deficit…comes together at a time when according to government and market led sources, supported by the media, Ireland is on the cusp of new economic growth. The works in the exhibition can be viewed as a set of markers which are both a critical response and a reminder in considering how to move forward from the particular set of socio-economic circumstances Ireland currently resides. Motivational Deficit… also asks if there is appetite to reconsider the overall system to prompt what lessons can we bring forward to quell the acceleration, crash and systemic failures of the Celtic Tiger and beyond….

Labour and Lockout, commemorating the Dublin 1913 Lockout at Limerick City Art Gallery

New work by Anthony Haughey

This Labour and Lockout exhibition at Limerick City Gallery of Art, proposes that we do best homage to the past by being in our present and considering our future. It also suggests that work – labour – is the subject of a changing world with complex implications for human relationships – where technology complicates the matter, looking at protest, rural and urban work, the questions of Ireland’s future, systems of ownership, public space, industrial geography, sites of crisis and power, citizenship and individuality. Information about the exhibition LCGA available  here

DISPUTE 1913 | 2013

Installation: photographs, wall text and red clay bricks

On December 15th 2011 the owners of Lagan Brick factory, in Kingscourt, County Cavan ceased production of domestic house bricks. This was due to a fall in demand following the global economic crisis and the collapse of Ireland’s overheated housing market. The workers were sacked without notice and the management refused to pay redundancy entitlements. The workers had more than 580 years service between them. They staged a dispute outside the gates of the factory. The lockout lasted for 272 days, the longest industrial dispute ever  staged in Ireland. It was finally resolved by the intervention of politicians and the Industrial Labour Court. Final redundancy payments to the workers was made in February 2013.

Red clay bricks are no longer produced anywhere in Ireland. On the final day of production one of the workers had the foresight to rescue some of the last bricks from the production line before they reached the kiln. Artist Anthony Haughey worked closely with the brick workers and documented the lockout. At the end of the lockout the unfired bricks were gifted to the artist to produce an art work dedicated to the struggle of the workers, their families and the community who supported them. The texts inscribed into the bricks reflect some of the key issues which emerged for the workers during the strike. The artist collaborated with sculptor Michael Kobuladze to produce the bricks.

Art & Activism: Dialogical Art Practice as a Form of Activism, The Lab, Dublin, May 9, 2013



Categories: News.


Taking a historical and thematic approach, Northern Ireland: 30 Years of Photography begins with the media imagery of the Troubles that compelled photographers and artists to intervene in the flow of press photography that dominated a global, visual portrayal of Northern Ireland in the 1970s. From this response, and influenced by wider, international trends in contemporary photography, an engaged and often polemic aesthetic emerged, individual to each photographer but also shared across diverse photographic practices. With the Peace Process in the 1990s a new dynamic entered the scene which required photographers to think about the social and political past and future of Northern Ireland, and which also offered new opportunities for exhibiting and publishing work.

While presenting an analysis of its broad aesthetics, the exhibition also questions the extent to which the theme of conflict has dominated our view of Northern Irish photography. The photographers presented in the exhibition have formulated their visual language and its way of seeing Northern Ireland from wider photographic influences and from the gradual acceptance of photography as a gallery-based art form.

A year of haunting and ghosts in Irish art – but the only direction left is up

Weekend Section The Irish Times – Saturday, December 24, 2011,

Anthony Haughey’s photographs of ghost estates

A lot of the interesting visual art this year seemed to concern the liminal spaces at the edges of towns and cities, Patricia Burns’s Hinterland paintings at the Triskel in Cork (published as a book by Gandon) being an outstanding example. But the most potent images are probably Anthony Haughey’s extraordinary sequence of photographs of ghost estates and abandoned building projects. Captured in the very low light of day’s end, they glow eerily with what Wordsworth called “the light of setting suns”, giving them the mythic feel of ruins from a lost civilisation. Though, in this case, “civilisation” may not be quite the right word.

Settlement at The Copper House Gallery, Dublin, October 25 – November 29, 2011

Settlement charts the fallout from the collapse of Ireland’s ‘property bubble’, a result of the overheated Celtic Tiger economy. For this exhibition Anthony Haughey has created an installation in Fire’s new Copper House Gallery, which reflects the financial, ecological and domestic impact of Ireland’s economic collapse. His installation will incorporate a collaboration with some of Irelands architects – in association with DIT Department of Architecture and Urban Design, NAMAlab, UCD School of Architecture and Mahoney Architects – who have proposed visionary plans for abandoned and half-finished buildings currently littering the landscape. These architectural proposals will form part of the installation in the gallery and will also be viewable in their site- specific context by using a freely available smartphone app (QR reader) to scan a QR code fixed to the hoardings of various NAMA building sites around Dublin city.

The photographs in Settlement are produced in the half-light between sunset and sunrise. The combination of darkness, artificial light and long exposures draws attention to the destruction of the natural environment as a result of over development. In this ongoing series, these ghost estates are recast as eerie ‘monuments’ – testament to the end of Ireland’s gold rush and the resulting cost of unregulated growth and institutionalised speculation. More recently, Pyrite was discovered as a component of hardcore under the foundations of more than 20,000 new homes in north Dublin and Co. Meath, resulting in serious structural damage. Pyrite also known as ‘fools gold’ is a tragic but fitting metaphor for this exhibition and the demise of Ireland’s speculators.

Troubling Ireland, Dublin City Centre, 12–23 September, 2011


Anthony Haughey | Think Tank

Troubling Ireland public hearing

September 10, 2011





















Troubling Ireland poster campaign

12th–23rd Sept 2011, Dublin City Centre

12th–19th Sept 2011, Leitrim Sculpture Centre, Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim

Troubling Ireland public hearing
Friday 16th September, 2–4.30pm
Liberty Hall, Dublin 1

In 2010, the Danish curatorial collective Kuratorisk Aktion was commissioned by the Fire Station Artists’ Studios in Dublin to frame and convene a think tank for artists and curators in Ireland. Drawing on their expertise and experience in social, political and cultural activism, and in colonialism and postcolonialism, Kuratorisk Aktion conceived the idea of ‘troubling’ Ireland. The think tank would provide a critical, aesthetic and discursive platform for socially engaged practitioners in which received notions of Irish identity, history and politics, and Ireland’s relationship to global capitalism, would be probed and unravelled. The chosen participants were Gareth Kennedy and Sarah Browne (as collaborative partnership Kennedy Browne), Anthony Haughey, Anna Macleod, Augustine O’Donoghue, Susan Thomson and Helen Carey.

Over the course of a year, from September 2010 to May 2011, five meetings were held in cities of social and political significance, north and south of the border: Dublin, Manorhamilton (Co. Leitrim), Belfast and Limerick. In each location, different problematics were engaged: British plantation economy and class relations, Ireland’s colonisation and division, the Celtic Tiger boom and bust, and possible paths to a more convivial and equitable future. These meetings comprised presentations, readings, screenings, walks, lectures and discussions, and concluded in summer 2011 with a collective decision to launch a Troubling Ireland Campaign, beginning with a public poster campaign and website in September 2011 and ending with a major exhibition in 2013.

Running from 12th—23rd September 2011, the poster campaign presents seven posters mounted around Dublin city centre, and related sites, as well as Leitrim Sculpture Centre, Manorhamilton (runs 12th—19th September 2011). Each poster is an initial response from the think tank participants to the concept of ‘troubling Ireland’, ultimately inviting viewers to also partake in the act of ‘troubling’. The poster campaign is accompanied by this website, which in addition to presenting the ideas behind each poster and their producers, includes a reflection on the think tank process by cultural geographer Bryonie Reid. To coincide with this poster campaign, the think tank organises a Public Hearing in Liberty Hall, Dublin on Friday, 16th September 2011, from 2–4:30 pm, where the audience is invited to discuss the think tank’s aims with its participants. Admission is free and all are welcome.

The campaign will end in 2013, when participants of the think tank will exhibit work arising from sustained individual engagements with the theme in a major travelling exhibition.

Heaven & Earth – recent developments in Irish photography

Heaven & Earth – recent developments in Irish photography

The Gallery of Photography, Dublin, presents a showcase projection exhibition ‘Heaven & Earth – recent developments in Irish photography’ at the New York Photo Festival 2011. Featuring the work of two of Ireland’s leading photographic artists Anthony Haughey and Jackie Nickerson. The projection installation can be viewed at Smack Mellon, Plymouth Street, DUMBO, May 11-15 2011.

About the presentation:
Anthony Haughey adopts a rigorously socio-political approach to landscape. In ‘Disputed Territory’, he explores the social, cultural and political stakes involved where two different states – and at least two different communities – perceive the same landscape in very different terms. Themes of dislocation and discontinuity are further explored in ‘The Edge of Europe’, an evocative portrayal of the complex relationship between the depopulated landscape of the West of Ireland and the Irish Diaspora on the East Coast of America. Haughey’s projection exhibition includes his most recent, ongoing project, ‘Settlement’ which charts the aftermath of the collapse of Ireland’s ‘Celtic Tiger’ economy. The banks foreclosed on developer’s loans, all building projects across the state ceased and more than fifteen years of unprecedented growth came to an abrupt end. Now there are more than 620 ‘ghost estates’ and thousands of unfinished houses throughout Ireland. Through Haughey’s lens, these eerie ‘monuments’ are a testament to the end of Ireland’s gold rush and the resulting cost of unregulated growth.

Jackie Nickerson’s acclaimed body of work FAITH is the result of three year’s work during which she gained unprecedented access to Ireland’s enclosed religious orders. Starkly beautiful, the work delivers a unique insight into the spiritual life of religious communities. As Nickerson states: “Although the visual language is based on extensive research into religious art and Christian symbolism, this is only the beginning of the technical aspect of building the images. The emphasis is on the concentration of commitment and the resultant physicality of both the sitters and their environment. It goes beyond any specific Christian ritual and can be an example of any life based on total commitment to spirituality”

New publication: ‘STATE’ Susanne Bosch & Anthony Haughey




Published by Project Press, a division of Project Arts Centre, Dublin STATE documents a series of interrelated projects by Susanne Bosch and Anthony Haughey which explore the phenomena of migration and migratory culture in an attempt to trace and map out their respective specific contested spaces. The artists have worked together since 2006, both collaboratively and individually with migrants in Ireland (north and south), wider Europe and North Africa. Their creative investigations are based on the premise of a principal situatedness of art in place and community and its connectedness through dialogic exchange. They employ a range of strategies, from direct engagement with migrants to provocative public interferences, which expose the structures of power that impose vulnerability and marginalization on individuals. Their work has been exhibited widely internationally and their individual art works are represented in numerous public and private collections.
