'Dressing Our Hidden Truths' Opens At The National Museum Of Ireland

: 03/26/2019 - 12:29

The artist behind a new exhibition at the National Museum of Ireland says it was 'emotional' trying to address the issues being depicted.

'Dressing Our Hidden Truths' takes a look at life in institutions such as mother and baby homes, Magdalene laundries and industrial schools.

The exhibition will officially open to the public from tomorrow, and will be at the Museum at Collins Barracks in Dublin until May 2020.

Alison Lowry says it was tough putting it together - considering the nature of the issues that were addressed:
