Emma Wolf-Haugh brings her performance piece ‘Domestic Optimism’ to the Grazer Kunstverein Art Gallery in Graz. The work draws on gender, colonialism, the Irish-born designer Eileen Gray and the lesbian experience to subvert historical legacy using vernacular language and aesthetics. Wolf-Haugh is a visual artist and educator and has been artist in residence at IMMA since July 2019. Weaving together her past experience in theatre, installation, performance, publishing and collaborative workshop techniques, she develops work from a queer/feminist perspective.
Emma Wolf-Haugh: 24 September – 20 November
