Dublin Biennial 2012


June 15 - June 24, 2012

Something fresh and exciting is happening in Dublin this Summer.

The inaugural Dublin Biennial Pop-Up, a free, independently funded, artist led, International Contemporary Art Exhibition, will be showcased in an 10,000 sq. ft. space at The Point Village. The Artists were selected to showcase works that have a diverse and widespread appeal to a large audience.

This exciting new Pop Up exhibition will run from June 15th - June 24th, with a Gala opening on Bloomsday, June 16th from 1-3pm officiated by The Lord Mayor of Dublin Andrew Montague.

The brainchild of artist Maggie Magee, she describes the Dublin Biennial Pop-Up as a celebration of art in all its forms and facets. “I am excited about opening the doors to International artists. The Dublin Biennial will create a dynamic showcase for International and Irish art, and I hope that it will become a mainstay of the Dublin's cultural events calendar for many years. One can only imagine the huge benefit economically, culturally and in terms of International exposure the Biennial effect holds for Dublin and Ireland."

The 55 International Artists selected to exhibit represent 20 countries: Austria, Armenia, Brazil, Croatia, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Holland, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Korea, Malaysia, Norway, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the USA.

Among the International artists participating will be Yoko Ono (USA) and Brazilian Artist Christina Oiticica, American Artists, Ellen Rothenberg and Anne Wilson, and Polish artist Jacek Tylicki.
