Kate Murphy: Probable Portraits traces the artist's interest in private thought versus public revelation, the validity of pop culture and the significance of family in our lives. Curated by Elise Routlege, the exhibition is installed across the ground floor exhibition space at SAM, this exhibition presents a series of video works including the artist's moving portrait of a mother's relationship with her children in Prayers of a Mother (1999); Britney Love (2000 and 2007) documenting an aspiring child pop star's journey into adulthood, and the bleakly funny and moving self portrait, Cry Me a Future (Dublin) (2006).
Curator's talk by Elise Routledge: Thursday 20 September 2013, 6pm
