Event Description:

‘Selfie: The National Self-Portrait Collection of Ireland’
with William Gallagher Art Historian
Friday 16th March 1 – 2 p.m.        Admission €5 ALL WELCOME
The traditional artist’s ‘self-portrait’ has come to be seen very differently in the age of the selfie, as many people now make a dozen self-portraits a day. What was once considered a privileged insight into the artist’s more private self is now viewed on a broader spectrum, from naked introspection to brazen self-promotion. At Limerick University, Ireland has an outstanding and almost unique specialist assemblage of 400 self-portraits by Irish artists, built over the last 30 years. This lecture will outline the range and development of the collection, and give a sense of its representation of Irish art besides other collections such as that of the Crawford Gallery.
