European Summer Must-Sees: Dublin
Our final stop on our Summer art tour takes us to the Emerald Isle

Next up and our final stop in the summer series Europe exploration is Dublin. If you find you have used most of your days of annual leave, Dublin is far closer than other stops on our European tour, but still makes the perfect spot for a weekend getaway. The city is a lively hotpot of culture and creativity, all waiting to be washed down with a Guinness at the end of the day. There are plenty of galleries and museums to choose from in Dublin - we’re taking a look at some of the best exhibitions available to see right now! 

National Gallery of Ireland | Dutch Drawings: highlights from the Rijksmuseum | Open until the 6th November 

Gerard ter Borch the Elder (1583-1662): Girl Reading, early 1630s; Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.

One of our previous summer series articles focused on the Rijksmuseum. If you weren’t able to get to Amsterdam this summer, perhaps the National Gallery of Ireland is more within your reach these coming months! A new exhibition in the Print Gallery presents a rare opportunity to view drawings by Dutch masters such as Rembrant and Vermeer. The exhibition emphasises the importance of drawing to the Dutch masters and artists in general during the 15th century, demonstrating how drawing was a focal part of their painting development. The close study, using drawing, was an integral part of ensuring that the end painting was as realistic as possible. 

Photo Museum Ireland | In Our Own Image: Photography and the Social Gaze | Open until the 5th of November

Ciarán Óg Arnold, I went to the worst of bars...

Wander down the infamous Temple Bar to find Photo Museum Ireland. Currently on display is the fourth exhibition of the series ‘In Our Own Image’. Photography & the Social Gaze explores social change in the perception and identification of what it means to be Irish. Emerging artists and established artists alike come together to explore the most pressing issues around Irish identity and Irish history. By deliberating the past, the exhibition faces and challenges the future. This contemplation of social change allows the artists as well as their observers to engage in new ways of seeing ourselves and each other. We are invited to leave the place of the passive witness and reflect on the process of change within ourselves as it is lived, making this exhibition deeply personal.

Hugh Lane Gallery | Bones in the Attic | Open until 15th October

The Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin, Ireland. 

Women are still judged today by their familial ties. The exhibition wall text states that ‘The same female figures are still considered dangerous [today]: the single woman, the childless woman, the aging woman – all dismissed with fear, pity or horror.’ Bones in the Attic is an intergenerational exhibition comprising eleven arts who explore the societal issues that have posed a danger to women - and those that continue to do so to this day. Despite the sombre theme, the exhibition is also a celebration of everything that has been achieved in the feminist journey so far. We are on a road, not without its blocks, to autonomy, safety, reverence and understanding. The covid-19 Pandemic escalated the number and severity of victims of domestic abuse. This exhibition draws upon this specific violence as well as ancient Irish mythologies and histories, in order to meditate and question contemporary society as well as the historical narrative of feminine cognisance and its survival.
