We’re delighted to announce that The Douglas Hyde Gallery will reopen from Wednesday 12 May! Our current solo exhibitions by Yuri Pattison and Steve Bishop were only very briefly open in December and we’re looking forward to sharing the artists’ work with you.
Utilising video, sculpture, and online platforms Yuri Pattison’s work explores the political, material and social consequences of the rapid development of technology. His works move across platforms and materialities, connecting off- and on- line spaces. The exhibition comprises a series of newly commissioned artworks in an altering and immersive installation that spans across the two levels of Gallery 1. Working across sculpture, installation and film, Steve Bishop’s work often references the familiar or domestic. Through multi-layered environments, everyday objects are presented in their essence or abstracted, creating spaces which are non-places, in which things stand still and through a poignant absence, interior states and emotions emerge. Read more about the exhibitions on our website.
The safety of our visitors and staff is our priority. As before, visitors will be required to book online and capacity will be limited. We are fully compliant with the Fáilte Ireland Covid-19 Safety Charter for reopening and are keeping up to date with the Health Service Executive, Government, and Trinity College Dublin advice. If you have any questions or concerns about your visit, be sure to get in touch.
