Politics and art: Irish artist puts spotlight on migrant crisis
Date created :
FRANCE 24 meets artist Elaine Hoey, whose new exhibition opens at the Irish Cultural Center in Paris this week. Her main theme is for empathy, justice and solidarity around the migrant crisis as she tackles whether it really is a crisis at all. Hoey also tackles the rise of nationalism here in Europe and across the world. She says she wanted people to become immersed in the migrant crisis - an experience that they, particularly in her home country of Ireland, have perhaps not yet had.
