Gifted from the artist following her Butler Gallery exhibition in 2016

This work first exhibited with us as part of the 2016 exhibition ‘Strangers: Film & Drawings’, and was kindly donated by the artist after the exhibition in April 2016.

This exhibition included continuous screenings of six animated films in three of the four galleries, with one gallery dedicated to drawings that were made in the development of the various films. Mostly realised in rich charcoal, these idiosyncratic drawings reveal McAdam’s range as a skilled multi-media artist. They also illustrate aspects of the far-reaching research the artist undertook to shape her material.

Trish McAdam makes narrative films in response to socio-political issues, personal encounters and artistic collaborations. She represents the outsider and embraces issues such as homelessness and political activism. Born in Dublin, where she lives and works. She studied in UCD, College of Marketing and Design, DCU and in 2011 received an MA in Visual Arts Practices from the IADT/Institute of Art, Design & Technology, Dublin. She has given talks and lectured on Film Studies in Dublin City University, Trinity College, Maynooth College, Oxford College and Oklahoma University. McAdam worked in photography, graphics and short films before making her first feature Snakes and Ladders in 1996. She has produced and directed documentaries for RTE and was the founding chair of the Screen Directors Guild of Ireland where she served from 2001-2007.
