This September, Dublin Gallery Map launches the first ever Dublin Gallery Weekend, a new visual arts festival taking place in Dublin from Friday 11th to Sunday 13th September 2015. Dublin Gallery Weekend is supported by Fáilte Ireland, Dublin City Council and Temple Bar Gallery + Studios.
Over one weekend, contemporary art galleries across the city will throw open their doors and invite visitors old and new to experience the fantastic art on offer in Dublin art galleries. A series of special events, including exhibition openings, artist and curator talks, walking tours, late openings and workshops will take place over the weekend, and almost everything will be free of charge.
The wide range of events and exhibitions for all ages will be taking place across Dublin city in galleries such as IMMA, TBG+S, Nag Gallery, Science Gallery, Douglas Hyde, RHA, Project Arts Centre, NCAD and many more, featuring a range of Irish and international artists. Walking tours will showcase the cultural delights of areas such as Trinity, Parnell Square, Monto, The Coombe, St. Stephens Green and Temple Bar.
