The Commission, Sculpture Dublin Lecture Series with Paula Murphy

The Commission is the third of a series of six lectures on public sculpture in Dublin. The lecture was streamed online on 26 March 2021.

This lecture, which was filmed in the City Hall, discusses the commissioning process – how a monument gets to be located in the city. The O’Connell Monument is used as a case study.

The lecturer, Paula Murphy, is a specialist in the history and theory of sculpture and has published widely on Irish sculpture. A UCD emeritus professor, she is a member of the Steering Group of Sculpture Dublin.
