Mairead O’hEocha and Mark O’Kelly in conversation with Francis Halsall

Join Francis Halsall for a conversation with Mark O’Kelly and Mairead O’hEocha, two of Ireland’s most expressive and intuitive artists.

They will discuss the frames and landscapes of painting today, the contemporary conditions of painting, and the figure of the painter in a roaming, perhaps even unruly, conversation!

The conversation will be held within the exhibition of Mark O’Kelly’s Empireland.

Francis Halsall is course director, with Declan Long, of Masters Programs, Art in the Contemporary World at NCAD.

Mark O’Kelly is an artist based in Dublin, who has recently exhibited at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, EVA International, Lewis Glucksman Gallery.

Mairead O’hEocha is an artist based in Dublin, who has recently presented exhibitions with Douglas Hyde Gallery, Statements in Art Basel, Butler Gallery and mother’s tankstation.

Due to limited capacity in the gallery we will not be taking pre-bookings – audiences are welcome from 4.15pm for a 4.30pm start.
