Doris Salcedo’s Acts Of Mourning in Irish Museum of Modern Art


PODCAST: Going behind the scenes of a powerful exhibition tackling memorial and loss at the Irish Museum of Modern Art

I got the chance to visit the Irish Museum of Modern Art to hear about a major new exhibition of internationally-renowned Colombian artist Doris Salcedo. IMMA’s Claire Power walks me through the gallery as she shares the background behind the pieces and how each explore profound themes of memorial and loss. ‘Acts of Mourning’ brings together six bodies of work exploring how we remember and acknowledge victims of violence.
