William Crozier, Departure from the Island, 1993
IMMA will present a major retrospective of the Scottish-born, Irish artist William Crozier (b. Glasgow 1930, d. Cork 2011) in 2017. Best-known in Ireland for the lyrical landscapes he made close to his home in West Cork from the mid-1980s, this exhibition will present these familiar works against a backdrop of his early work inspired by the Existentialist movement and the anxieties of the post-war period.
The exhibition will be shown sequentially across the two venues with Crozier's later works from 1985 showing at West Cork Arts Centre (15 July – 27 August 2017) and his earlier works shown at IMMA (13 October – 31 December 2017). Both exhibitions are curated by Sean Kissane (Curator, Exhibitions, IMMA).
