Seamus Nolan: Traveller Collection at the Hugh Lane | Thursday 21 June  – Sunday 30 September 2018 | Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane

In 2017, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts came together for the first time  to commission a significant  socially engaged artist’s project in Dublin.  The call for submissions was made through CAPP the EU Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme,  a transnational partnership with Spain, Ireland, U.K Hungary, Finland and Germany and co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. Following submissions from artists from all of the CAPP partners, Irish artist Seamus Nolan’s proposal was successful. One of Ireland’s foremost artists working in collaborative arts practice, Seamus Nolan’s project sees him investigating the idea of archive, deconstructing ideas on ‘heritage’ and engaging with the Traveller communities in Ireland  and Traveller activists and archivists. Seamus Nolan’s  exhibition at the Hugh Lane will comprise of archival material that forms the Irish Travelling People: a Resource Collection and which is  borrowed from the Special Collections of Ulster University.  This remarkable collection was originally created and built up by Eileen L’Amie during her time at the Ulster University.
