Abstract

Re/Dressing Cathleen: Contemporary Works from Irish Women Artists documents an exhibition of the work of 13 contemporary Irish women artists at the McMuIlen Museum of Art, Boston College, USA,in October-December 1997. It presents a series of essays by critics and theorists mainly from Boston College (with Irish writing by Medb Ruane of Ireland's Sunday Tribune and Angela Bourke of University College, Dublin), and interviews with selected artists. Since the exhibition was developed with reference to the 150th anniversary of the worst year of the Irish Famine of the 1840s, a compilation is appended of 'American letters' sent by Irish emigrants to America at that time. The publication contains 44 colour and black/white images of the art work exhibited. JENNIFER GRINNELL & ALSTON CONLEY (eds), 1997. Boston, McMuIlen Museum of Art, Boston College and Cork, Cork University Press. pp. 144, ISBN 0.9640153.8.2, £14.95 (pb)
