EUROPE'S EDGE Ireland - The Artist and the Island - December 2010 Tromsø, the regional capital of northern Norway, was the unlikely venue for Irish Art's most recent exhibition Europe's Edge. In what was probably the largest ever showing of Irish contemporary visual art in Norway, the exhibition explored themes as diverse as the styles of the contributing artists.
The exhibition featured work by Brian Bourke, Maurice Caplice, Shane Crotty, Charles Cullen, Rita Duffy, Adrian McAllister, Dara McGee, Rosie McGurran, Jay Murphy, Mick O'Dea, Eamonn O'Doherty, Bernard Reynolds and Ger Sweeney.
Europe's Edge was held in conjunction with the 7th Biennial International Conference of the Nordic Irish Studies Network. The exhibition was launched by His Excellency Gerald F. Ansbro, Ambassador of Ireland on 2 December at the Tromsø University Library Gallery and ran until 13 January.
