Art of Protest

In the Art of Protest, artist and curator Dean Kelly has brought together a number of contemporary Irish and Irish based artists who have made social commentary, satire, political narrative, street art or campaigning graphics important, or even central, parts of their artistic output.

The show includes Brian Maguire’s extraordinary haunting imagery of war– devastated Aleppo and also features the work of Robert Ballagh, Jim Fitzpatrick, Áine Phillips, Ruby Wallis and Dolores Lyne amongst others.

Historian Catherine Corless will open the exhibition at 3pm on Saturday July 14th in The Kenny Gallery.
