Naked Truth: The Nude in Irish Art. Over 80 works assert the existence of a rich history of the depiction of the naked and the unclothed body in the work and practice of Irish artists. This show presents the nude and the naked body as depicted by Irish artists, focusing on interconnecting themes of political allegory, domestic intimacy, gender politics, artistic training, censorship, sexuality and display. The exhibition features work ranging from historic Sheela na-gigs, to artists including Francis Bacon, James Barry, Dorothy Cross, Robert Fagan, Amanda Coogan, Mainie Jellett and Brian Maguire.
