Would you like an opportunity to introduce your friends and family to contemporary art? Three of Dublin’s most well-known city centre contemporary art galleries, the Douglas Hyde Gallery, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios and Project Arts Centre are joining forces to offer a guided walking tour that takes place across these venues. The tours introduce their current exhibitions to those who might not be so familiar with contemporary art and offer an interesting insight into the work for those who are. The whole tour will take about 60 minutes (approx.), with 15-20 minute tours taking place in each gallery.
Beginning at the Douglas Hyde Gallery, you will be introduced to new exhibitions by Luigi Ghirri and Aleana Egan. Visitors will then be guided to the next venue, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, where Programme Curator Rayne Booth will give an introduction to the group exhibition Display Show guest curated by Gavin Wade (with Celine Condorelli & James Langdon). Finally, the tour will end at Project Arts Centre, where you will be guided through the exhibition of work by Belgian artist David Claerbout.
We'll meet on Thursday 20th August at 1pm at the Douglas Hyde Gallery. Book a spot for your parents, friends, cousins, housemates and anyone who you think might like to learn more about the things you love.
