Frank Bowling: Mappa Mundi

This exhibition is a stunning overview of the work of seminal British artist Frank Bowling. Through his ‘map’ paintings Bowling addresses issues of history and migration – like the mass movements of people, from colonial slaves through the ‘Middle Passage’ from Africa to South America, to socio-economic motivated migration. His work on geographic and human movement has special relevance in our time.

Tuesdays are free. Wednesday to Sunday is €5 concession for students.
24 March 2018 – 8 July 2018
