New Threads: Acquisitions 2021
Cork City, Co. Cork
24 July - 5 September 2021
New Threads showcases more than 20 artworks that have recently come into public ownership, made possible though major acquisitions funding from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.

The exhibition’s title is inspired by one of the featured artworks, Ariadne’s Thread (2013) by Jennifer Trouton, which borrows from an Ancient Greek myth and suggests an escape from the fabled Labyrinth. The painting provides a curious entry point from which visitors may follow – or tease out – new threads of practice and meaning in the collection.

In total, 225 artworks by 39 contemporary artists have been added to Crawford Art Gallery’s collection in recent months, ranging from paintings, photographs, prints, and drawings, to sculptures, installations, digital film and sound works, textile and embroideries.
