Locky Morris has exhibited both regionally and internationally since the mid-1980s. Morris’s work touches on a broad range of subjects, from the highly personal and familial, to the political. Renowned for his early work that explicitly dealt with The Troubles in Northern Ireland, Morris has also received acclaim for his quietly powerful and intimate work, infused with a dark wit.
Morris has presented solo shows at Naughton Gallery, Queens University, Belfast 2016; mother’s tankstation, Dublin 2010; and Mannheimer Kunstverein, Germany 2008; and recent group shows at The Mattress Factory Museum, Pittsburgh, USA 2017; the Museum for Contemporary Art, Belgrade 2014; and the Czech Museum of Fine Arts, Prague 2006. In 2016 Morris received the Irish American Cultural Institute’s O’Malley Award for Art.
Locky Morris’ residency is part of an exhibition and production residency partnership between EVA and IMMA for the 38th EVA International, 06 April – 27 May 2018. This programming partnership is a remote but integral segment of the biennial that takes place across various venues in Limerick from 14 April to 8 July 2018.
