Sean Scully at Hodges Figgis

22 July, 2.30pm

Kerlin Gallery is pleased to announce that the internationally renowned Irish artist Sean Scully will give a reading from his latest book, Inner: The Collected Writings and Selected Interviews of Sean Scully at Hodges Figgis, Dublin. The reading will take place on Saturday 22 July at 2:30pm.

 

Inner (2016, Hatje Cantz) compiles almost 200 texts that provide a unique perspective on one of the most engaging artistic imaginations of the past half century. The publication varies from brief reflections of compressed eloquence to essay-long mediations on artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Giorgio Morandi and Mark Rothko. Scully’s writings are distinguished by a brutal lyricism and the effortlessness of their aphoristic turn of phrase.

 

This event is the third in a series of readings, following on from celebrated appearances in New York and London. The talk is free to attend, but places can be reserved by emailing events@hodgesfiggis.ie.

 

Address: Hodges Figgis, 56-58 Dawson Street, Dublin 2
