Conor Horgan – Post-State
Opening Fri, 14 October
An acclaimed photographer and filmmaker, Conor Horgan began working on Post-State in 2020 as he travelled around Ireland, building a series of relevant images that articulate how he imagines the island might look if it were to no longer exist as a nation state.
Elizabeth Archbold in Conversation

This Must Be The Place – Ciara Roche Lecture
Thurs, 6 October, 5:30pm
This Must Be The Place is a new series of free public lectures here at the RHA that takes its title from the 1983 Talking Heads song, a song that was unusual in their catalogue as a love song to place and home. The series opens with a talk by Ciara Roche. Her paintings are restless and full of detail, they are an exploration of light & colour, they can be uncanny and sometimes off kilter – familiar places made strange.
