This National Gallery of Ireland/Royal Hibernian Academy collaboration showcases women’s membership of the Royal Hibernian Academy from the election in 1923 of the first woman member, Sarah Purser, to the first woman President, Abigail O’Brien, in 2018. As part of the RHA bicentenary celebrations, the exhibition combines an historic survey of the past 100 years together with a presentation of work by current woman members of the Academy. 

While half of the artists represented in the exhibition are living, the other half span the decades from the 1920s. The exhibition comprises works in a variety of media, and involves an unprecedented use of Room 21, in which Irish art from the late 17th to early 19th century is usually displayed.

An exhibition organised by the National Gallery of Ireland and The Royal Hibernian Academy of Arts 

Curators: Dara McElligott Curatorial Fellow and Dr Brendan Rooney, Head Curator (National Gallery of Ireland); Dr Patrick Murphy, Director and Kate McBride RHA Registrar Collection and Exhibitions (RHA).
