'Revenants' by Kevin Mooney

Kevin's new exhibition Revenants, curated by Sarah Kelleher, opens in the Courtyard Galleries at the Irish Museum of Modern Art this Wednesday 30th November.

Revenants assembles a significant body of recent work by Cork-based artist Kevin Mooney. Bringing together paintings made between 2016 and 2022, Mooney’s practice visualises under-explored areas of Irish history.

As a colonised nation, there are large gaps in the record of our art history and material culture caused by poverty, famine and mass migration. Mooney’s work reconsiders these lacunae and reverse-engineers the ‘lost’ visual culture of this Irish diaspora, imagining it as a mutant absurdist folklore, and, in the process opening up thorny questions about cultural influence and transformation.

Revenants is curated by arts writer and a Government of Ireland Scholar, Sarah Kelleher.
