The LAB presents an exhibition curated by Isobel Harbison. ‘The Geneva Window’ is the name of a stained glass window by Harry Clarke depicting scenes from Irish literature written between 1900 and 1925. It had been commissioned by the Irish government in 1926 to represent the country in the League of Nations building in Geneva. Censored upon completion in 1930 for the literary extracts it depicted, it was never sent to Switzerland. Here, now, some of its many stories are extracted as metaphoric windows through which to look at contemporary art. Featuring works by Dara Birnbaum, Harry Clarke, Steven Claydon, Lewis Klahr, Mark Leckey and Elodie Pong.
