NWCI Legacy Project: Representations of Women & Work
“STILL, WE WORK, features commissioned works by artists Anne Tallentire, Miriam O’Connor, Sarah Browne and Vagabond Reviews. Devised to explore contemporary representations of women and work, the artists were commissioned by the National Women’s Council of Ireland (NWCI), with project curator Valerie Connor.
After exhibitions in Dublin, Galway and Cork between 2013 and 2014, the exhibition toured Ireland in 2015, with five further curators working in Letterkenny, Callan/Kilkenny and Limerick, supported by an Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaion Visual Art Touring Award and touring partner venues and local authorities.
Through the exhibitions and additional programming, the aim was to spark new connections and reveal common cause among artists, activists and other communities of interest by exploring issues affecting women and work increasingly characterized by casualization, low pay and precariousness.”
