Event description
Robert Ballagh speaks on his history of creating profound, accessible pieces of art.

About this Event

In the early 1970s, artist Robert Ballagh received his first major commission with a series of eighteen panels for the Five Star Shopping Centre in Clonmel. These pieces by a pioneering Irish artist, that observe and chronicle Irish people of the period as they stand and observe in a heightened realistic setting, had a profound effect on a generation of Clonmel people, informing their visual references as well as the sense of place they felt towards their environment. The availability of the work in the mall of a shopping centre made it a startlingly democratic and accessible piece of public art.
