    A solo exhibition by renowned Irish artist Brian Maguire opens today at the Rhona Hoffman Gallery in Chicago. War Changes its Address and Other Border Stories runs until February 13. Since the 1970’s Brian Maguire has approached painting as an act of solidarity. He operates a truly engaged practice, compelled by the raw realities of humanity’s violence against itself, and the potential for justice. Significant bodies of work over the last four decades includes the Irish Prison Paintings (1988-90), Favela Vila Prudente and Casa da Cultura for the São Paulo Biennial (1998), Femicide/Juarez (2009-12), and more recently the Aleppo Paintings (2017).

    Over the past 40 years Rhona Hoffman Gallery has built an outstanding reputation with a diverse programme which champions socio-politically engaged artists, both emerging and established. Rhona Hoffman Gallery has been celebrated for the representation and exhibition of marginalised voices and subjects in the art world.
