Perspectives: Where is Irish Art Now? with Eithne Jordan

Perspectives is a series of talks exploring one question or idea from the point of view of different artists, writers, critics and curators.

Eithne Jordan (Dublin, 1954) was a founder member of the Visual Arts Centre, a co-operative studio space for artists funded by the Arts Council and Dublin Corporation, and subsequently taught painting at the National College of Art & Design. She lived and worked in West B erlin from 1984-1989, and since 1991 has been living and working between Ireland and France. Her work has been marked by an increasing involvement with figuration, through paintings exploring interiors, landscape, still life, and more recently, with images of industrial and urban environments. In these shifts of subject matter there is an engagement with the formal demands of the genre, and an exploration of the tradition of painting. 

Perspectives is a series of talks exploring one question or idea from the point of view of different artists, writers, critics and curators. The current series invites artists to discuss their relationship to Ireland and Irish art history in their individual practices. Perspectives: Where is Irish Art Now? has been developed in conjunction with the exhibition From Highwood to Home: Highlights from a Private Collection, and is generously supported by Cork Institute of Technology / Crawford College of Art & Design.
