Eugeen Van Mieghem: Port Life
Audiences can experience the works of acclaimed Belgian artist Eugeen Van Mieghem for the first time in Ireland this year, through an exhibition depicting the vibrant life of the Port of Antwerp at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane.
Eugeen Van Mieghem: Port Life is a fascinating visual account of the pulsating life of a working port at the beginning of the 20th century. Van Mieghem’s work represents a social history, exploring themes of migration, globalisation, port society, the working community, and, the life of the artist – themes that resonate with Dublin as a port city.
Exhibition supported by Dublin Port Company.
