“We are so excited to be entering into the third year of Dublin Gallery Weekend with an action packed line-up of incredible events, tours and talks and a brand new map to help visitors find their way around. Dublin has such a wealth of incredible visual art organisations and it’s wonderful to work so closely with them all to curate a weekend with something for everyone. With DGW, we hope to open up the rich array of artists and arts spaces to both Dubliners and visitors, art connoisseurs and novices, young and old.” - Rayne Booth, founder and director of Dublin Gallery Weekend.
