The Oscar Wilde Temple: McDermott & McGough

Wednesday 03 October 2018Sunday 31 March 2019

The Oscar Wilde Temple is a wholly immersive work of art and secular space honouring one of the earliest forebears of gay liberation whilst commemorating contemporary LGBTQ+ martyrs and those lost to the AIDS crisis. The entirety of the gallery, a Victorian former chapel, has been dramatically transformed to create an environment that celebrates the Irish poet and author. Period wallpaper, stained glass windows, hangings and 19th century chandeliers and furniture adorn the space, evoking the provocative sensuousness of the Aesthetic Movement. David McDermott (1952) and Peter McGough (1958) have worked collaboratively since 1980.
