Ireland at the Movies: Costume in Irish Cinema 1987-2015

14.08.2015 –
27.09.2015
9.30am – 5.00pm

The Little Museum of Dublin

Open 7 days. Late opening until 8pm on Thursdays.

This exhibition explores costume design in Irish cinema from the iconic My Left Foot to more contemporary productions like Calvary, Garage and Song of the Sea. Incredible exhibits have been sourced from the private collections of costume designers, directors and actors who have preserved these costumes as personal mementos and culturally significant items. 

 

Exploring the costume design methods and sources used, including vintage shops, costume makers, tailors and family heirlooms to name but a few, this unique exhibition positions costume as a fundamental tool which helps the actor inhabit his or her character, as well as signalling time and place within the storyline.
