An exhibition by an artist you have never heard of. 

Ira Dean disappeared at sea in 2009 while making her final artwork. She vanished completely. But was it an accident? A tragedy? A hoax? The mystery has haunted her partner, Jan Kavanagh, for the last decade in her search for clues in the surviving artworks. Join her as she introduces us to the life and work of Ira Dean.
