Masterfully weaving together elements of documentary and drama, Citizen Lane delivers a vivid and captivating portrait of art collector Hugh Lane, one of the most fascinating and enigmatic figures in modern Irish history. Scenes depicting Lane's life, especially his efforts to build a gallery of modern art in Dublin and the controversy that followed his untimely death are interspersed with historical footage and interviews with scholarly experts such as art historian Morna O'Neill from Wake Forest University. O’Neill, who was a Fellow at the Center in 2012–13, is the author of the new book Hugh Lane: The Art Market and the Art Museum, 1893–1915. She will introduce the film and host a post-screening Q&A.

When faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges, a common human response is to fall into a resigned paralysis. Moving past this feeling of helplessness is a crucial step for the future of our planet. One of the first steps in the transition from frightened bystanders to impassioned advocates is to foster a personal kinship with the world around us. The artists in this exhibition explore relationships with nature in many ways, from meditations on what we have and stand to lose, to evidence of the impacts we have already made on our environment.
Exhibition Reception and Panel Discussion: Wednesday, March 27, 6:00–8:00 p.m.
