Networking Day 2019: Hammad Nasar and Mary McCarthy


In the context of the Decade of Commemorations and how Ireland’s struggle for independence played out very vividly in Cork, we chose to close Networking Day 2019 with a discussion about the notion of commemoration and the symbolic role of public art. We were joined by Hammad Nasar, initiator of Let Our Statues Speak project, to reflect on questions of memory and whose history gets written in or out of the urban fabric in broader processes of commemoration. Hammad was in conversation with Mary McCarthy, Director of the Crawford Art Gallery.
