The exhibition series is diverse in practice, from painting to installation, and each exhibition provides a unique voice.

Tá an tsraith taispeántas ag plé le téamaí éagsúla, ó phéintéireacht go healaín suiteála, agus cuireann gach taispeántas guth uathúil ar fáil.

This year Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane presents a series of exhibitions which have as their central theme The Artist as Witness in Society. The exhibitions contribute significantly to contemporary appraisals of historical and current political and social issues. Diverse in practice, from painting to installation, each exhibition provides a unique voice and illuminates the relevant role the artist plays as a witness in society.

The exhibition programme includes “High Treason”, exploring the life and death of Roger Casement, and 'Our Kind', a contemporary response to the events by artist Alan Phelan. These exhibitions provide a platform for a rich, special evening in-focus lecture series. The series will expand on the catalogue for these exhibitions, and will reflect on and consider: the role of the artist as a lens on society; Casement himself as a humanitarian; the historical context; the legal context of the trial; the black diaries; and the what ifs. Upcoming speakers in the series include Angus Mitchell, Sinéad McCoole, Jeffrey Dudgeon, Mr. Justice Donal O’Donnell, and Chris Clarke and Alan Phelan in conversation.

For 2016 Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane will deliver a rich and varied education programme that will expand on, delve deeper into, respond to and provide access points into our exhibitions programmes, the Gallery’s Collection and its unique position as a modern and contemporary art institution in Dublin city.

Cuireann Gailearaí Hugh Lane Chathair Bhaile Átha Cliath sraith taispeántas i láthair i mbliana arb é an téama lárnach atá acu ná an tEalaíontóir mar Fhinné sa tSochaí. Cuireann na taispeántais go mór le breithmheas comhaimseartha ar shaincheisteanna polaitiúla agus sóisialta, idir stairiúil agus reatha. Ag plé le téamaí éagsúla, ó phéintéireacht go healaín suiteála, cuireann gach taispeántas guth uathúil ar fáil agus tugann chun solais an ról ábhartha atá ag an ealaíontóir mar fhinné sa tsochaí.

Mar chuid den chlár taispeántas tá “High Treason” ina gcíortar beatha agus bás Roger Casement, agus “Our Kind”, freagra comhaimseartha ar na himeachtaí leis an ealaíontóir Alan Phelan. Cuireann na taispeántais seo ardán ar fáil le haghaidh sraith speisialta de léachtaí tráthnóna. Leathnóidh an tsraith amach an chatalóg le haghaidh na dtaispeántas seo, agus déanfar machnamh ar ról an ealaíontóra mar shúil ar an tsochaí, ar Casement féin mar dhaonnúlach, ar an gcomhthéacs stairiúil, ar chomhthéacs dlí na trialach, ar na dialanna dubha, agus ar na rudaí a d'fhéadfadh tarlú ach nár tharla. I measc na gcainteoirí sa tsraith beidh Angus Mitchell, Sinéad McCoole, Jeffrey Dudgeon, an Breitheamh Donal O’Donnell, agus Chris Clarke agus Alan Phelan i gcomhrá.

Le haghaidh 2016 cuirfidh Gailearaí Hugh Lane Chathair Bhaile Átha Cliath clár oideachais saibhir agus ilchineálach ar siúl, clár a chuirfidh lenár gclár taispeántas, le Bailiúchán an Ghailearaí agus lena stádas uathúil mar institiúid ealaíne nua-aimseartha agus chomhaimseartha i gcathair Bhaile Átha Cliath. Ina theannta sin, cíorfaidh an clár iad sin ar bhealach níos doimhne, freagróidh sé dóibh agus tabharfaidh sé deis do dhaoine iad a bhlaiseadh.
