In a new strand of programming, the Museum presented some of today’s most prominent younger generation international artists, all exhibiting for the first time in Ireland. Working with the Museum’s curators, each artist addressed individual exhibition spaces. The resulting works encompassed painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and video, and range from a radio-telescope for the courtyard by Honduras-born sculptor Paul Ramirez Jonas to a wall drawing by Yukinori Yanagi, one of the leading figures in contemporary Japanese art.
English artist Gillian Wearing studied at Goldsmiths, University of London, and Chelsea School of Art. Since the 1990s Wearing has challenged ideas of public and private, confession, self-exposure and voyeurism through the documentation of ordinary people in her practice. Wearing received the Turner Prize in 1997. She has exhibited extensively, including solo exhibitions at the Serpentine Gallery, London; Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf; and the Musée Rodin, Paris.View Artist
