‘my comfort and my joy’ and The Artist’s Eye: Paddy Bloomer
To mark the final day of my comfort and my joy by Seamus Harahan and Thomas McCarthy, and The Artist’s Eye: Paddy Bloomer, curator and The Douglas Hyde Director Georgina Jackson will lead a walk-through of both exhibitions.
Jackson commissioned this latest solo show from Harahan and worked closely with the artist throughout the production period, accompanying Harahan and Thomas McCarthy to the Willie Clancy Summer School in Clare, where part of the work was filmed, earlier this year.
The walk-through will take approximately 30 minutes and there is no need to book a place – all are welcome!
