To celebrate its 60th anniversary, The Arts Council is working in partnership with four prominent Irish galleries: Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, The Model, Crawford Art Gallery and Limerick City Gallery of Art to produce a series of exhibitions as a major national showcase of works by over 100 artists from its collection.
The exhibition in The Hugh Lane is curated by Michael Dempsey and will present works from both the Arts Council Collection and The Hugh Lane’s own collection. It is entitled Seeing clouds for the first time. Invited artist Karl Burke will also feature with a new commission by the Arts Council for the installation. Seeing clouds for the first time will address floor/wall relationships and institutional framing as extensions of the abstract picture plane. The aim is to create dialogue between the experience, the reception, and the production of art – an indication of the continuity between the past and the present, between then and now.
