Opening: Tues 09 Sept, 6pm
Screening: Tues 09 Sept, 9pm
Exhibition: 09-20 Sept 2008
This exhibition tells the story of the Irish writer James Joyce (1882-1941), one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. International in his vision and impact, but always spiritually rooted in his native city of Dublin, Joyce could be said to represent the spirit of modern Ireland.
“John Huston and the Dubliners” will be screened at 9pm on the night of the opening.
“At its core, though, Ulysses is a book about the heroism of daily life. Some of the parts of the book that seem obscure are only so because we are not used to such familiar things being shown to us in such vivid and honest ways.”
In conjunction with the Irish Embassy.
