Housing (exhibition)

Housing (exhibition)

For several years, Art Arcadia and Liverpool Irish Festival have mapped exchanges between Liverpool and Derry.

This time, we have linked three artists, around the concept of ‘A Doll’s House’, as originally masterminded by Ciara Finnegan (Heemstede, the Netherlands). Working collaboratively with David Jacques (Liverpool), Anne-Marie McKee (Derry, NI) and Ciara Finnegan, the artists will consider space, location and care. At the time of writing the final exhibition piece remains unknown, but whatever is created will be shared at The Reader, complete with literary suggestions. A house within a mansion.

To read more about the different artists and their approach to ‘A Dolls House’, visit: artarcadia.org/housing/

The work is part funded by Derry City and Strabane District Council and Arts Council England and delivered in partnership between Art Arcadia (Derry) and Liverpool Irish Festival, hosted by The Reader.
