‘Radical Actions’ curated by Linda Shevlin

RMIT Gallery
Building 16 344 Swanston Street, City campus, RMIT University, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia.

This year of commemoration of the 1916 Rising in Ireland will be a starting point for an international exhibition that is reflexive and responsive to the defining period around the Great War in an international context. It will look at how events in recent and distant history, attitudes to rebellion, revolution and agitation have formed societies and national identities, questioning the role of the artist in imagining future states and explore the impact this revolutionary period has had on Irish citizens.
