Join us for the Opening of Desire: A Revision From the 20th Century to the Digital Age, an international group exhibition exploring the evolving role of desire in art and life. Master works from the 20th century sit alongside new commissions and contemporary work, tracing desire from the historical canon to present-day digital transformations. Artists in the exhibition include Matthew Barney, Frank Bowling, Lee Bul, Helen Chadwick, Dorothy Cross, David Douard, Marcel Duchamp, Tracey Emin, Justine Emard, Max Ernst, Awol Erizku, Cao Fei, Genieve Figgis, Ann Maria Healy, Elaine Hoey, James Joyce, Bharti Kher, Jonah King, Seiha Kurosawa, Yayoi Kusama, Rene Magritte, Eddie Peake, Tschabalala Self, VALIE EXPORT and others. This exhibition is proudly supported by Kildare Village.
There will be a special live response with singer Lisa Hannigan, as part of an ongoing collaboration with artist Dorothy Cross.
