Over twenty-five years ago The Good Friday/Belfast Agreement was signed. Since then, a new generation has grown up in Northern Ireland with an outlook vastly difference to that of their parent’s generation. The Troubles are no longer the dominating political and cultural influence of their lives. The voices of this new generation of women are now coming to the fore as the post-conflict society slowly recovers after decades of violence and they provide striking examples of the new ideas, visions and voices of women in Northern Ireland.
Visions of the Future will feature Eimhéar Atkinson, Leah Davis, Shauna Fox, Hattie Godfrey, Holly-Mae Greer, June Hill, Trina Hobson, Santa Leimane, Stephanie Lindsay, Aimee Melaugh, Saffron Monks-Smith, Aimée Nelson, Amber Rossi and Irene Sweeney. The exhibition was curated by ArtisAnn Gallery, Belfast.
This is an exciting opportunity to see the works of these young and talented women artists at the start of their careers.
The Institute of Irish Studies is delighted to co-host this exhibition together with the Irish Cultural Centre Hammersmith. We are grateful for the support for this project received by the Government of Ireland via the Department of Foreign Affairs’ Strategic Diaspora Development Fund, and also by Ulster University.
