The Douglas Hyde Gallery at Trinity College, Dublin is showing Alice Neel: Family, a selection of twelve paintings and nine drawings chosen by Jeremy Lewison on the theme of the family. The exhibition opened on 8 September 2011 and runs till 16 November. A catalogue accompanies the exhibition with an essay by psychoanalyst Adam Phillips.
Reviewing the exhibition in the Sunday Times Cristín Leach remarks: ‘Her exhibition at the Douglas Hyde captures the beguiling innocence and determination of childhood, and maps the relationships between the generations. It does all this without shouting, shocking or pushing any agenda other than its own motivation, which is to explore the complicated joy of family.’
Jeremy Lewison will be giving a lecture at Trinity College Dublin on 2 November at 19.00 on Alice Neel and the Photographic Image. To attend contact the Douglas Hyde Gallery.
