'Analysing Cubism' at IMMA

A new exhibition opened at the Irish Museum of Modern Art last week 'Analysing Cubism'. It focuses on the Irish artists May Guinness, Jack Hanlon, Mainie Jellett, Evie Hone, Norah McGuinness and Mary Swanzy and also other European Modernists. Exploring the early decades of Cubism, the exhibition explores the Continental physical and social setting in which these artists worked in the 1920s and '30s. It runs until the 19th May.
