An evening with Robert Ballagh, one of Ireland’s most recognised visual artists, in conversation with Marcella Bannon.

Robert Ballagh is one of Ireland’s most recognised, and recognisible visual artists. As well as creating iconic images across a range of media, Ballagh has always been socially and politically engaged. Through his work, and through his campaigning, Robert Ballagh has become a public figure who has consistently spoken out in support of causes and aspirations, both in Ireland and abroad. Often, his opinions have not chimed with that of official Ireland or with the zeitgeist, and for these reasons, Robert Ballagh is the Drogheda Arts Festival 2017 Dissenter. Building on Tony Clayton-Lea’s fascinating interview with Lian Bell (Waking the Feminists) last year, this year’s Dissenter will be interviewed by former Droichead Arts Centre Director, Marcella Bannon. Join us for a stimulating evening of discourse and debate, as Robert Ballagh discusses his work and his passions and how, as an artist, they co-exist and influence each other.
