Mark Dion: Our Plundered Planet. 

4th April – 1st September 2019

Hugh Lane Gallery is delighted to present the first solo museum exhibition in Ireland by US artist Mark Dion entitled Our Plundered Planet. This exhibition addresses the serious and topical issue of global warming and the resulting consequences for our planet. Dion presents a critical discourse on the relationship between nature and civilisation and reveals his long-standing interest in and knowledge of the earth’s eco systems. Informed by his studies of ecology, botany and ethnography, he invites us to take a hard look, not only at the natural environment, but also at our inherited philosophical ideas about nature.
