Pride Of Place. Growing up in Sheriff Street
Pride of Place is a multimedia project of photographs, backed by video, and based on interviews with some 50 residents of Sheriff Street by Maria McCrane.
One of the big hits of #thefivelampsartsfestival2022 this free exhibition returns on Thursday 1st December at the Central Bank of Ireland in North Wall Quay, Dublin 1, and is open weekdays from 10am to 4pm until Friday December 16th.
Pride of Place took three years to complete and evokes memories of of kind, resilient people who cared for each other, an evocation at odds with the pictures painted in tabloids and TV, inspired by Maria’s early years behind the counter in ‘‘Mattie’s” her family’s corner shop, described as an “Aladdin’s cave” by writer Peter Sheridan, which doubled as the unofficial community centre for generations of Sheriffers.
