One of Ireland’s foremost artists working in collaborative arts practice, Seamus Nolan’s project sees him investigating the idea of archive, deconstructing ideas on ‘heritage’ and engaging with the Traveller communities in Ireland.
In 2017, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts came together for the first time to commission a significant socially engaged artist’s project in Dublin.
The call for submissions was made through CAPP the EU Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme, a transnational partnership with Spain, Ireland, the UK, Hungary, Finland and Germany, and co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
Following submissions from artists from all of the CAPP partners, Irish artist Seamus Nolan’s proposal was successful. One of Ireland’s foremost artists working in collaborative arts practice, Seamus Nolan’s newest project sees him investigating the idea of archive, deconstructing ideas on ‘heritage’ and engaging with the Traveller communities in Ireland and Traveller activists and archivists.
Seamus Nolan’s exhibition at the Hugh Lane will comprise archival material that forms the Irish Travelling People: a Resource Collection, and which is borrowed from the Special Collections of Ulster University. This remarkable collection was originally created and built up by Eileen L’Amie during her time at the Ulster University.
