Elaine Byrne will take part in a group exhibition titled The Ocean After Nature curated by Alaina Claire Feldman and produced by Independent Curators International (ICI). The Ocean after Nature considers the ocean as a site reflecting the ecological, cultural, political, and economic realities of a globalised world through the work of twenty artists and collectives. In September 2017 The Ocean After Nature continues its international tour at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane. At every hosting site, a new work by a locally based artist is added to the exhibition in order to further contextualise the exhibition for diverse global audiences. Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane has invited artists Elaine Byrne and Philip Napier to contribute to the project, Byrne will be showing new sculpture works and a new video, commissioned by the Hugh Lane.
