“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.
Highlights of the weekend include the launch of Rodney Graham’s much anticipated exhibition ‘That’s Not me’ at IMMA; a special music event inspired by Detroit electronic music duo Drexciya at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane; a series of artist talks at the new talks space upstairs at AIB Grafton Street; and a family art workshop at the LAB gallery inspired by their exhibition ‘Futureproof’.
Visitors can pick up the Dublin Gallery Map with full schedule and listings at one of 50 locations across the city or on the Dublin Gallery Weekend website.
