Barbara Jennings talks to MARGARET BECKER about her 1916 exhibition on Near FM’s Northside Today with John Healy.
Almost fifty Printmakers from eight Printmaking studios around Ireland have accepted an invitation to participate in the project, which aims to create awareness of little known events or incidents during or around the time of the Easter Rising in 1916. Through a variety of organised events the artists were encouraged to research incidents and aspects of life at the time of the Rising and to create little prints in response to their research. The result is an eclectic mix of interpretations of both the brief and of the artists’ research. There is sure to be plenty of discussion and argument about some of these interpretations.
