Over the past 14 years, the Glucksman has been privileged to show many ambitious site-specific works by Irish artists. DOUBLE TAKE: Collections and Context looks back to some of these innovative moments within our exhibition history by recreating displays by artists who are also represented in the UCC Art Collection. From dramatic gallery interventions to intimate moments of architectural response, art installations from previous Glucksman exhibitions are now shown together with the artist’s work from the UCC Art Collection. In doing so, DOUBLE TAKE invites viewers to consider how we see and understand art in different contexts. The significant presentation of Brian O’Doherty’s works in the Sisk Gallery is part of a larger focus on the artist’s work generated through the One, Here, Now restoration project at the Sirius Arts Centre which is on display in Cobh throughout 2018. DOUBLE TAKE is funded by University College Cork, the Arts Council of Ireland and private philanthropy through Cork University Foundation.
