TROUBLES ART TOURING EXHIBITION: THE MARKET HOUSE, MONAGHAN
On display at The Market House, Monaghan until 22nd February 2020
As part of an 18 month tour, the Troubles Art exhibition has now arrived in Monaghan, crossing the border to the Republic of Ireland for the first time. Drawn from the art collection at National Museums NI, the Troubles Art exhibition provides a broad representation of responses to the Troubles by a range of artists from Northern Ireland and beyond. The subjects, themes and meanings of the works are diverse and offer the perspectives of the artists themselves.
The exhibition explores a range of themes which are universal to conflict – such as suffering and loss, violence and destruction, imprisonment, sectarianism, traditions, territory, and life in the midst of turmoil. The unique perspectives of artists themselves offer opportunities to consider the Troubles and their effects in ways other than through history and politics.
