Alice Maher: My Empire of Dirt
Celebrated Irish artist Alice Maher will give a talk on her work, which explores issues of identity, embodiment, and the meeting of myth and everyday experience.
Alice Maher is one of Ireland’s most celebrated artists, recognized for her experimental use of non-traditional and vernacular materials; for her explorations of embodiment and identity; and her incorporation of a range of literary, folkloric, mythical and art historical material together with various kinds of ‘low’ and frequently despised contents. Her work is held in numerous national and international collections, and she was the subject of a recent retrospective at the Irish Museum of Modern Art (Alice Maher: Becoming, 2012). Maher is represented by Green on Red Gallery, Dublin.
