CURATOR

O’Connor has been organizing, selecting and hanging exhibitions of art for over twenty five years. More recently she has curated exhibitions dedicated to Irish artist Seán Keating in which she addressed the complex contexts in which he worked. This project began in 2009 with an exhibition titled ‘Seán Keating in Focus’ at the Hunt Museum in Limerick, followed by two shows in 2012, ‘Seán Keating: Contemporary Contexts’ at the Crawford Art Gallery, Cork (13 July-27 October) and ‘Seán Keating and the ESB: Enlightenment and Legacy’ at the RHA Gallery Dublin (6 September-21 December 2012) (sponsored by ESB). Exhibitions of work by Irish contemporary artists and curated by O’Connor are in the planning stages – news will be posted on the ‘News and Events’ page.
