Double Estate is a group exhibition that considers the human form through a selection of over fifty works from the OPW State Art Collection across print, painting, photography and sculpture. These are offered against the historical backdrop of William Pearse’s figurative sculpture from the collection at St Enda’s and Patrick Pearse’s writing on physical archetypes. A 64 page full-colour catalogue, designed by Oonagh Young will accompany the show. This includes essays by Brian Crowley (Collections Curator, Pearse Museum & Kilmainham Gaol) and Davey Moor and will be available free-of-charge throughout the run.
