The Wolfsonian FIU presents Harry Clarke and the Geneva Window

June 25

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until July 31 2024

Ongoing
The Wolfsonian–FIU @ 1001 Washington Avenue

Widely regarded as his most important and controversial commission, Harry Clarke’s stained-glass masterpiece, the Geneva Window, is again on view at The Wolfsonian–FIU. An internationally renowned Irish artist, Clarke was commissioned in 1926 by the newly independent Irish Free State to create a window as a gift to the League of Nations in Geneva. The completed window was, however, rejected—labeled too provocative and “unrepresentative” of the Irish people. This new installation sheds light on the life and times of Harry Clarke, the stories behind the window, and the consequences of cultural censorship.
