Shell/Ter Artist Collective Exhibition at National Gallery of Ireland
July–November 2023 
Shelter will highlight new artworks created by the five members of the Shell/Ter Artist Collective (S/TAC). Diana Copperwhite, Allyson Keehan, Niamh McGuinne, Sharon Murphy and Geraldine O’Neill work in a variety of formats: painting, sculpture, expanded print and photography. Their work will be complemented by a selection of objects from the Gallery’s collection, and pieces by international artists whose work and practice resonates with the Collective. Using the Print Gallery imaginatively to show works that explore the idea of shelter, traditional methods of display will be expanded and disrupted to create a vibrant, thought-provoking exhibition. Curator: Anne Hodge
