Locky Morris Retrospective

October 5 – November 13

First retrospective exhibition of Derry artist Locky Morris. Locky’s work has been exhibited widely – ‘Directions Out’ was shown at the Douglas Hyde Gallery in Dublin 1987, the British Art Show toured Britain in 1990, while ‘New North’ (1990) and ‘Strongholds’ (1991) both exhibited at the Tate Gallery in Liverpool, Kunst Europa in Germany, the XLV Bienalle Venezia, L’Imaginaire Irelandais in Paris, the Puffin Room in New York and the Ellipse Arts Centre in Washington in 2000. Throughout his career, his engagement with Derry City and its changing character has shaped his work, often showing in community centres and the street. For a number of years in the late nineties he concentrated solely on making music with his band, Rare. He has been the recipient of numerous awards including the Art for Architecture award from the RSA. This exhibition was in association with the Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast.
