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.

Starting at The Douglas Hyde Gallery, where Gallery Assistant Rachel McIntyre will give a short tour of Dukkha, a group show featuring artists Aleana Egan, Jaki Irvine, Fergus Feehily, Sam Keogh, and Paul Mosse, as well as give some background information to the early 20th century Irish silent films on show in Gallery 2. Rachel will then walk the visitors to the next venue, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, where Assistant Curator Sophie Behal will give an introduction to the exhibition The Sophisticated Neanderthal Interview by Nathaniel Mellors. Finally, visitors will be led to Project Arts Centre, where they will be treated to a guided tour of the exhibition The Centre for Dying on Stage #1 by Assistant Curator Emer Lynch. This exhibition features work by Karl Burke, Dina Danish, Dan Graham, Krõõt Juurak, Christodoulos Panayiotou and Meggy Rustamova.

We'll meet Tuesday 9th September at 12 noon 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.

After the tour we will head to Mochaland Café for a special lunch offer just for walking tour attendees.
