2022 marks 100 years since James Joyce’s modernist novel Ulysses was published in its entirety.  To celebrate this fact we have invited 18 visual artists to each make an original print, responding to one of the 18 episodes in the book.  Each print will be limited to just 18 copies, with three of these available as a box set of the complete exhibition, accompanied by a commissioned text by Nuala O’Connor, celebrated author of Nora. O’Connor’s book, published in 2021, imagines Joyce’s home life, through the eyes of his wife Nora Barnacle. The book was chosen as this year’s read for One Dublin, One Book initiative.

Joyce’s famous novel has inspired many different artists since its publication: writers, musicians and visual artists. This exhibition gives 18 printmakers the opportunity to create a work using an episode from Ulysses as a starting point. The resulting prints, in a wide variety of techniques, illustrate how art of the past inspires art of the future. A line from Nuala O’Connor’s text alludes to that continuum:

‘We loop into infinity, eating ourselves and each other, the end in our beginning and the beginning in our end’.

The exhibition is curated in collaboration with Anne Hodge, National Gallery of Ireland along with Peter Brennan and Mateja Smic of Graphic Studio Gallery.

Kelvin Mann, Andrew Folan, Fiona Kelly, Yoko Akino, Monika Crowley, Tom Phelan, Kitch Doom, Vaida Varnagiene, Robert Russell, Niamh McGuinne, Elke Thonnes, Shane O’Driscoll, Louise Leonard, Jean Bardon, Daniel Lipstein, Matthew Gammon, Dermot Ryan, Clare Henderson & Nuala O’Connor.
