Irish Art in Practice: Women’s Work?

April 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The Irish American Heritage Center, in partnership with the Consulate General of Ireland, Midwest, presents Irish Art in Practice. Join Jennifer Keating, Ph.D. as she brings us through the world of Irish arts and artists, and the living applications and impressions it makes on the world around us. Jennifer Keating  is a Senior Lecturer and the Writing in the Disciplines Specialist in the William S. Dietrich II Institute for Writing Excellence. Most recently, she served as Assistant Dean for Educational Initiatives in the Dietrich College for Humanities and Social Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. She brings an educator’s perspective to this fascinating series.

Women’s Work? – Presented in-person, and via Zoom, April 21st, 7:00pm CST

Irish Art in Practice: Ursula Burke, Rita Duffy, Mairéad McClean and Paula McFetridge, the forthcoming book by Jennifer Keating, explores contemporary artistic practice in Ireland.  In Women’s Work we will view key examples of each artists’ work as we consider their individual concerns and contributions to contemporary art in Irish and international contexts.  In addition, we will mine the influence of embodiment:  what features of gender emerge in each artist’s work?  What concerns pertaining to women in Ireland come forward in their practice?  What features of masculinity or gender fluidity are explored or interrogated?

Register here for the in-person presentation of Women’s Work? in the Library at the Irish American Heritage Center.
