100 Years of Change

The Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr. Joe Kavanagh speaks about the exhibition 100 Years of Change 

100 Years of Change is a project from The Glucksman, University College Cork that invites you to experience artworks in community spaces across the city and to reflect on the transformation of life in Cork since 1920.


100 Years of Change is a creative project that facilitates the touring of artworks to community settings and the presentation of a series of short films that commemorate the centenary of 1920.


The touring artworks from the University College Cork Art Collection explore themes including health, technology, housing, domestic living and women’s rights. Exhibited at locations that allow for safe and personal viewing, the contemporary artworks offer insights into the advances in city living and the lives of its citizens. 100 Years of Change features artwork from Colin Crotty, Casandra Eustace, Collette Nolan, John Halpin and Dara McGrath.


The Glucksman has also created a series of short films featuring artists, academics and historians that invite you to discover more about the artworks and the history of Cork city.

Cork City Council’s commemorative events encourage us all to reflect on our changing city and we invite you to visit your local community centre, encounter the artworks and watch the accompanying film.


The artworks and short films are on display at locations across the city at

Hollyhill Library, St Brendan's Community Centre, The Glen, Mahon Community Centre, Bishopstown Library and Ballyphehane/Togher CDP.
