Contemporary art and post-Troubles Northern Ireland

Since the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, contemporary visual artists have offered diverse responses to post-conflict circumstances in Northern Ireland. In his new book, launched in Paris this evening, art critic and lecturer Declan Long examines the work of artists who have reflected on the ongoing anxieties of aftermath through video, photography, painting, sculpture, performance and installation. Presentation of the publication will be followed by discussion with the audience.
