“The absence of justice demands this act.” —Brian Maguire

Fergus McCaffrey is very proud to present the gallery’s first exhibition of works by the critically acclaimed Irish painter Brian Maguire (b. 1951). The exhibition opens on Thursday, March 5, with a reception for the artist and continues until April 25.

Since 2010, Maguire has worked regularly in the Mexican city of Juárez—the murder capital of the world—where more than 5,000 people have been butchered by drug cartels over the past six years. The exhibition includes fourteen large paintings completed between 2012 and 2014 that address the Mexican drug war.
