Jane Humphries, From Subversion to Celebration: The Emergence of a domestic avant garde in contemporary Irish Art, Journal of Post Graduate Research Trinity, 7, 2008, 36-54
Journal of Post Graduate Research Trinity 7
Although the domestic has been critically observed in relation to British artists in the
1990s, it has not been considered cross-culturally in terms of Irish artists.1
Considering many female Irish artists were coming of age in the 1990s, as part of a
newly enlightened media-aware generation, conscious of feminist ideas and changing
attitudes towards women both in Ireland and internationally, this paper argues that
consequently, the domestic, as a subject-matter or material culture, became the vanguard
for a ‘domestic’ artistic movement to develop.
