The Women – Sculpture Dublin Lecture Series with Paula Murphy

The Sculptors is the fifth of a series of six lectures on public sculpture in Dublin. The lecture was streamed online on 28 May 2021.

This lecture, which was filmed in the City Hall, examines the role of women in public sculpture in Dublin, a practice that was largely male-dominated until the mid-twentieth century. The career of sculptor Gabriel Hayes 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.
