We are delighted to announce the re-launch of John Keane’s timely and poignant exhibition, now retitled Viral, as part of the continuing celebratory programming to mark the 50th Anniversary of Flowers Gallery.
John Keane is a renowned artist whose work addresses the most pressing social and political issues of our time. His sustained artistic inquiry into military and social conflicts around the world has extended from Northern Ireland to Central America and the Middle East, where he was commissioned as the Official British War Artist of the Gulf War.
The collection of paintings in this exhibition have been created over the last two years amid seismic shifts in the domestic and global political landscape. From conspiracy theories to data mining, Keane’s subjects span the evolving and influential world of information technology and the resulting network of alternative facts, misinformation and cyber warfare.
Our Cork Street gallery has reopened in compliance with the UK government’s Covid guidelines. We encourage you to make a booking before visiting.
