Arts Council

Arts Council of Ireland

Arts Council Collection showcase


For Culture Night 2021 the Arts Council will continue its proud tradition of showcasing a selection of works recently added to its extensive Visual Art Collection. The Arts Council Collection established in 1962 and comprising over 1,230 works of modern and contemporary Irish art.

The works on show from the Collection showcase the Arts Councils ongoing commitment to purchasing excellent and ambitious works of art which reflect the amazing standard of contemporary Irish visual arts practice and which both engage with and represent Ireland today.

As this year it will not be possible to welcome audiences to share these works in person at the Arts Council’s buildings in Dublin as we usually would, we have instead invited a few of the Collection’s most recently acquired artists to give some insight on their works and practice.

While the Arts Council itself is currently closed to visitors works from the Collection can be seen throughout the country as part of exhibitions and on long term display in public buildings such as hospitals, universities and schools.

Details of exhibitions including work from the Arts Council currently open to the public can be found below and please visit our website to learn more about the Arts Council Collection and to view the works online.
