The relationship between Labour and Capital shifted irrevocably in 1913 in the Great Dublin Lockout, just as it is shifting today – whether through the directives that change the face of rural labour, or the lockouts of our time, or the marketplace which directed our lives without our even knowing, or that the spaces we think are public but are governed by restrictive rules, or how we perform in relationship to knowledge and the past – this is what A LETTER TO LUCY addresses, what these artists take on. 

This exhibition and other interventions in Public Spaces take place alongside other exhibitions marking the centenary of 1913 Lockout including: Limerick City Gallery of Art; Gallery of Photography, Dublin; Temple Bar Galleries & Studios; Belfast Exposed; Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane; CCA Derry Londonderry and other events (1913committee.com)
