Launch of Raymond Watson’s ‘Hands of History’ Exhibition followed by talk by the artist

8 September 2023 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This unique artwork, a sculpture in bronze and granite, captures a momentous event in Irish history, the Good Friday Agreement. It features bronze casts of the actual hands of the nine political leaders who, in 1998, negotiated the Agreement. This will launch at 6 pm on Friday, followed by a talk by Raymond Watson at 7 pm. In his talk, Raymond will talk about the process of crafting the work and its continuing significance. We are grateful to the artist for allowing us to show the work as part of a weekend focused on the Agreement. The exhibition will run up to and including Sunday 10th September, however, it will not be open to the public on Saturday from 3 pm onwards to accommodate the Good Friday Agreement Panel Discussion Event.
