Patrick T. Murphy
Patrick T. Murphy is Director of Dublin’s Royal Hibernian Academy. The RHA is one of Ireland’s principal public arts organisations. Exhibiting contemporary Irish and international artists the RHA has a proud history of promoting the visual arts in Ireland since 1823.
Running the Royal Hibernian Academy means directing an institution that houses a major exhibitions programme, including the famous Annual. Patrick Murphy also oversaw the complete refurbishment of the building on Ely Place, reopening in 2009, with state of the art galleries, studios, a school and meeting rooms for the membership of the Academy itself.
