THE High­lanes will be the place to be this Fri­day for the open­ing cer­e­mony for Rita Duffy’s solo ex­hi­ition, Strength & Glory.

A con­tem­po­rary art project ex­am­in­ing the re­ceived ges­tures, sym­bols and props of Ir­ish life and draw­ing on artis­tic legacy such as that of Andy Warhol, Duffy presents ‘mul­ti­ple pro­duce’ in an ex­plo­ration of the Ir­ish lived ex­pe­ri­ence.

His­tor­i­cal, po­lit­i­cal and so­cial events are re­worked and pre­sented to the viewer as ir­rev­er­ent thought-pro­vok­ing ev­ery­day commodities - tins and jars are re­leased from the larder to ques­tion our cul­tural di­vi­sions and val­ues. All is ap­proached and pre­sented to reaf­firm and ex­am­ine the com­mon­al­ity of our es­sen­tial hu­man needs.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will open from 7.30pm - 9.00pm, Fri­day 20th July at High­lanes Gallery, and will be on dis­play dur­ing nor­mal gallery times un­til Satur­day Septem­ber 1st.
