Margaret Corcoran | Wexford Arts Centre

Wexford Arts Centre are pleased to present an online viewing room for A Further Enquiry – Love & Independence, showcasing recent work from one of Ireland’s most respected painters, Margaret Corcoran. 

The exhibition, held in the Highlanes Gallery this summer and due to tour to Wexford Arts Centre, presents three strands of work and reflects areas of focus in Corcoran’s practice over the last two decades from The Enquiry Series as she explores her relationship to art and history through the Collection of the National Gallery of Ireland; to a series exploring Bhutan and specifically since the 1970s where the country has compiled an index of happiness as a way of measuring social contentment; and the third series stemming from photographs taken in Rwanda which offered the artist inspiration to explore aspects of a country emerging from a long history of colonisation and conflict.
