Gallery Staff There are many welcoming and friendly staff in the gallery who can help us. When we have questions we can ask the person at the information desk, or any of the gallery staff. We can ask them questions about the gallery and they will help us find an answer. If we can’t find our family or friends we should ask the person at the information desk or a gallery staff member to help us.

Getting Around Once we are inside, we can explore the exhibition. The exhibition is held in Gallery 1 (ground floor) and in Gallery 2 (first floor). Gallery 2 is not wheelchair accessible.

In the Galleries When we go into the galleries where the artworks are displayed there are a few important things to remember 1. Stay with your group. 2. Do not touch the artworks. 3. No running. 4. No eating or drinking. 5. Respect other visitors and talk quietly.

The Exhibition: The Uncertainty of History:

Remembering Eileen Quinn This is a solo exhibition by Bernadette Burns. Bernadette Burns’ multimedia art practice focuses on memory and change, on how there are many strands and versions of a story rather than a single factual truth. The paintings, sculpture, audio and artist's books in this exhibition grew from a diary entry by her grandmother Tessie Burns referring to the shooting of Eileen, her younger sister in 1920. This exhibition explores family memory as a valid addition to the canon of history.
