This first substantial exhibition of Italian artist Carol Rama’s work comprises of almost 200 works and comes to Dublin following exhibitions in MACBA, Barcelona, Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, and EMMA, Finland. Born in 1918 in Turin, Rama was never academically trained or explicitly faithful to any particular movement. Instead, she developed a body of work over seven decades that is as unique as it is obsessive. Belatedly recognised in 2003, she was awarded the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale.

Visitors are advised that this exhibition contains adult themes and some explicit imagery.

Also on the 23 March, join us for a curatorial introduction to The Passion According to Carol Rama

Curators Conversation

Wed 23 March, 6.30pm – 7.30pm / Johnston Suite / FREE

Curators Teresa Grandas (MACBA, Barcelona) and Paul B. Preciado (dOCUMENTA 14) explore how Rama’s work offers anarchic representations of female sexuality, gender and politics which allow an essential revision of avant-garde movements of the last century. Followed by the exhibition preview and opening party. This is a free event but places are limited. Book Now
