02 Oct. 2010 – 10 Jan. 2011
Drawn from The Niland Collection, the exhibition Flight explores the way in which artists from the collection have represented otherworldly beings or used mystical visions in their work.
The exhibition celebrates the way in which artists have given free flight to their imaginations and indulged in visions of angels, gods, saints, warriors, and fairies. On the other hand Flight will consider the way in which artists have drawn on classical and biblical imagery to present nightmarish allegories of the political or social disarray of their own times.
This exhibition features many of the collection’s most popular artists including Jack B Yeats, Louis le Brocquy, Patrick Hall and George (AE) Russell.
