LUGHNASADH 2022 EXHIBITION
FÁILTE | WELCOME
Diarmuid Delargey and Manu Madeira are both political artists. They are also aware of the role of cultural discourses that speak through all art, and therefore they foreground such discourses unapologetically. While one speaks a resistance to extinction unabated by extractive industry and apathy, the other demands recognition and reimagining of racial regimes of representation and the “masks” of Whiteness that create violence against all Others: gender as well as racial. One is “about” environmental justice; the other is “about” social justice.
