Carolee Schneemann in "What We Call Love: From Surrealism to Now" at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin

August 19, 2015

Hales Gallery is pleased to announce Carolee Schneemann's inclusion in What We Call Love: From Surrealism to Now at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin (IMMA). IMMA is the home of the national collection of modern and contemporary art in the Republic of Ireland. 

 

Curated by Christine Macel, Chief Curator at Centre Pompidou, with Rachael Thomas, Head of Exhibitions at IMMA, What We Call Love features almost 200 works including Schneemann's Infinity Kisses II (Vesper) (1990-98). What We Call Love explores how the notion of love has evolved within the 20th century. How have seismic sociological changes concerning sexuality, marriage and intimacy, alongside developments in gender issues, affected the way we conceive love today? How does visual art, from Surrealism to the present day, deal with love and what can these artistic representations tell us about what love means in our contemporary culture?
