We seek to celebrate all things great on both the contemporary Irish and Norwegian art scene.
Irrgrønn is the greenish shade copper turns over time. The name was chosen as a reference to the recent convulsive period in Irish history. The country moved through a period of Celtic Tiger extravagance and ostentation, on to an economic crisis, and is now emerging as a more reflective society, just as copper begins as a shining, superficially alluring substance, decays with time, and finally emerges with a more complex and interesting colour: Irrgrønn.
Who we are Sam McManus and Claire Mc Aree are both from Ireland and currently live in Oslo. They care passionately about the arts in Ireland and are on a mission to ensure that Norway experiences the best of the country’s vibrant literary scene and to promote the exchange of ideas between the two countries.
