The idea of collective identity is explored at The Shuttle Hive, a new exhibition at the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks.

Where spring saw marching, movement and major public commemorations, centennial reflections have taken on a new mood as the year draws to a close.

Now, we’re encountering quieter, more meditative conversations and collaborations, a highlight of which is a new exhibition curated by Alison Conneely.
