Back by popular demand, Harry Clarke – Darkness in Light (2003) screens in parallel with MYSTERY & IMAGINATION, our annual exhibition of Harry Clarke watercolours.

Featuring expert contributions from Nicola Gordon Bowe, Peadar Lamb, Ciarán MacGonigal, James Scanlon, and Alan Titley, this documentary presents the remarkable story of a singular Irish artist and the collision between Church, State, and Art in the early twentieth century.

Documentarian John J. Doherty examines the life of Clarke and the controversial nature of his work, culminating in his clash with the conservative Irish Free State over his “offensive” masterpiece, the Geneva Window. Visually spectacular and poetically told, Darkness in Light is a fitting showcase of Clarke’s unique and haunting vision.’
