For his forthcoming exhibition with Void, Maguire is developing a new series of paintings, large works which interrogate the international war on and for drugs, the violence of a destabilized state and the darkness that permeates borderlands and trade between wealthy and poorer nations.
This new work extends Maguire’s investigation into the nature of violence in Juarez, which started with his work with the mothers and families of the victims of Juarez.
In the lead up to the launch of ‘J’ACCUSE’ by Brian Maguire on Saturday 28 November, Void is pleased to present a number of public events. The Foyle Film Festival will screen ‘Blood Rising’, a documentary detailing Maguire’s portraiture and activism in the Mexican city of Ciudad Juárez in The Nerve Centre at 8pm on Friday 20 November. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with the Director Mark Mc Laughlin and Brian Maguire.
On Friday 27 November at 8pm, Void Engage presents ‘In the Absence of Justice’ a panel discussion with Brian Maguire and journalists Eamonn McCann and Ed Vulliamy. This event will be held in Void. All Welcome. Admission Free.
