Other Worlds explores artistic responses to the natural environment within the Irish context. Through the works of 20th-century and contemporary Irish artists, the exhibition invites us to consider nature not just as a reality we encounter but as an interpreted space that reveals the diverse perceptual worlds we inhabit. The works shown range from pure formal visuality, and treatments of nature as allegories for psychological and ideological themes. This speaks to the idea of engagement with the natural world as both an internal and external creation; a presented and represented space.

The works selected articulate lenses of scientific inquiry, folklore, and ritual. Through these past and present interpretations of the natural environment, the exhibition hopes also to direct us outward to forge our own connections with the living world.

The exhibition includes artworks from the Arts Council of Ireland Collection by Richard Ashrowan, Barrie Cooke, Laura Fitzgerald, Martin Gale, Tom Haran, Sandra Johnston, Vera Klute, Louis le Brocquy, Christine Mackey, Theresa McKenna, Aileen McKeogh, William McKeown, Maria McKinney, Miriam O’Connor, Tony O’Shea, Alan Phelan, Bennie Reilly, and Nigel Rolfe; Gary Coyle, Martin Gale, and Caroline McCarthy from the IMMA Collection; Dorothy Cross from the Kerlin Gallery; as well as recent and newly commissioned work from Donegal artists Cáit McClay and Éiméar McClay, Charlie Scott, and Celina Muldoon.

Curated by Early Career Curator in residence Daniel Nelis.

Supported by the Arts Council of Ireland, OPW Ireland and Donegal County Council.
