    Jaki Irvine’s new commission for IMMA ‘If the Ground Should Open…’ is presented for the first time on the occasion of the centenary of the historic Easter uprisings of 1916. This new work takes as a point of departure Irvine’s 2013 novel ‘Days of Surrender’, which focuses on Elizabeth O’Farrell and Julia Grenan. These were two of more than a hundred women who were ready to die or kill for the possibility of a different Ireland but whose stories were all but written out of official Irish history, consigned to the margins as the narrative was masculinised. This new video and sound installation uses their names as the ground of a score for 9 musicians. In this way they are performed and remembered, becoming part of the ground we walk on in 2016.

    LIVE EVENT: Tues 13 Dec 2016, Great Hall, €8 Online (booking opens 23 September 2016)



    To celebrate our 25th anniversary, Frith Street Gallery is delighted to announce the reopening of our original space at 60 Frith Street, Soho Square, where the gallery first operated in 1989. Since opening, Frith Street Gallery has emerged as one of the art world’s most interesting forces, instrumental in developing the careers of internationally renowned figures as well as supporting those at earlier stages of their career. The reopening of the space marks our achievements to date and our quarter century.

    Dublin Contemporary 2011
    6 September – 31 October 2011

    Dublin Contemporary 2011 is one of the most ambitious exhibitions ever staged in Ireland. Showcasing the work of more than 114 Irish and international artists, it is set to transform the city into a vibrant gallery. The exhibition includes Irvine’s film 56 Inch Fantasy.



    The LAB, Dublin, Ireland
    15 January – 27 February 2010

    Inspired by William Hogarth’s 1732 series of prints, A Harlot’s Progress, Jaki Irvine’s short film City of Women was shot on Dublin’s Foley Street, an area once notorious for its prostitutes. In Irvine’s work the presence of the women on the street at night is ambiguous as they respond to scenes depicted in the 18th Century print. Also included are six of the Hogarth etchings, on loan from the Irish Museum of Modern Art.

    Jaki Irvine will have a solo exhibition at Frith Street Gallery from 12 March to 30 April 2010.
