Reinterpreting 1913 Episode 3

In this series we look at the influence which the 1913 lockout had on a number of artistic disciplines.

In this episode, We talk to artist Cathy Henderson about the 1913 Tapestry project. We speak to Helen Carey (Limerick City Gallery of Art) and Dr. Anthony Haughey about the Troubling Ireland ThinkTank.

Throughout the programme, all of the above tackle the question of Art as a tool for revolution, both in historical and contemporary times.

Dr. James Curry tells us about the James Larkin statue on O’Connell street and The Near Drama Company perform an excerpt from James Plunketts 1955 radio drama “Big Jim”.
