The National Gallery of Ireland has three new exhibitions opening in October. ‘Uniform: A Collaboration with Jackie Nickerson’ brings together photographs selected from Nickerson’s series Terrain (2012-13), juxtaposed with paintings from the Gallery’s collection. The photographs, taken in southern African, are studies of individual agricultural workers and farmers carrying items associated with their work in a manner that obscures their faces and/or alters their figurative outline. ‘Hugh Lane (1875-1915): A Centenary Perspective’ marks the tragic death of Lane in 1915 and examines aspects of his life in collecting, commissioning, and donating art. ‘At a Glance: Portraits by John Butler Yeats’ presents a small selection of paintings and works on paper revealing the artist’s life-long passion for portraiture.
