Looking for some cultural education? A new exhibition opens in Dublin today, and it features some incredible Irish artists
A new exhibition, featuring some of the best of the year’s cutting edge Irish art, is opening to the public today until November 10.
Vue, the National Contemporary Art Fair at the Royal Hibernian Academy, will feature ‘post-street art’ pieces by Atelier Maser, the creator of the Repeal The 8th mural and three of the artists attached to his studio in Charlemont Street.
The artists behind some of the city’s most recognisable street art will feature their work in the exhibition, including Aches, behind the U Are Alive mural on Camden Street and the Savita Halappanavar mural which was painted at the Bernard Shaw Pub on South Richmond Street.
Peter Doyle, Stephen Burke, Gordon Harris, Peter Monaghan and Michael Craig are just some of the other artists whose work will appear at Vue.
Pharmacist-turned fine art photographer Aoife Shanahan will be making her debut at Vue with a series of Oxycontin-encoded photograms designed to show the destructive capabilities of the ongoing opioid crisis.
Cork Printmakers are the first print studio outside the capital to exhibit at Vue. The 12 artists involved will be producing a limited edition boxset portfolio of their collective work.
Vue, the National Contemporary Art Fair is open from 5-9pm on Thursday Nov 7, 11am-7pm on Friday, Nov 8, 11am-6pm on Saturday, Nov 9, and 11-6pm on Sunday, Nov 10. For more information see vueartfair.ie
