Memento Civitatem | Alice Maher and Jamie Murphy

National Gallery of Ireland

Memento Civitatem is a new collaborative work by visual artist Alice Maher and book artist Jamie Murphy. It is the first artists’ book to be commissioned by the National Gallery of Ireland, and has been specially designed for its display at the Gallery. Maher and Murphy were invited to create an artists’ book in response to the Gallery’s archives of artists who lived through the social and political developments commemorated by Ireland’s Decade of Centenaries.
