Dermot Seymour: The Bloated Inability to eat Flags, September - October 2005
Dermot Seymour: The Bloated Inability to eat Flags, Selected Works 1983 - 2004
MCAC is honoured to launch this mini-retrospective of Belfast-born artist, Dermot Seymour. Internationally acclaimed painter and draftsman, he has exhibited all over the world. The work of Seymour can often be described as surreal but also possesses a definite sense of realism.
This retrospective brings together both a personal and social diary of change, development and altered perceptions of the artist’s visual landscape. The exhibition also serves as both a powerful social commentary and celebration of one of Northern Ireland’s great visual artists.
This is the first of four exhibitions commissioned by MCAC. The series is entitled ‘Inverting Conventions’ and is supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland Lottery Fund.
There is an accompanying exhibition catalogue, with essays by Irish columnist Susan McKay and Queens University, Belfast, Sociologist Jim Smyth.
Catalogue available from MCAC reception: £5
