on Wednesday's show....glorious music from the Opera Theatre Company preparing to perform at the Kilkenny Arts Festival, some of the greatest boxing movies of all time, titles on the longlist for the Man Booker Prize 2015 and Springsteen at Slane? Thin Lizzy at Dalymount Park? The Smiths at the SFX? - what's the best gig of your life?
The death was announced today, of the Irish painter and architect, Patrick Scott.
This sad news comes on the eve of a major retrospective of his work, due to open tomorrow.
It’s in two parts:
The first is in the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin and the second part, dealing with his later career, is in Carlow’s VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art.
Evelyn O'Rourke is joined by Aidan Dunne, the visual Arts Editor of The Irish Times, and author of a major book on the artist, entitled simply 'Patrick Scott'. Also on the line is Christina Kennedy, Head of Collections at IMMA who curated the exhibition.
