Award Profile

Grantee will pursue an exciting education curatorial project up to 12 months working with the Hugh Lane team. The project will contribute to the gallery's strategy and that of Dublin City Council of embedding a culture of continuous engagement between the Dublin City Art Gallery The Hugh Lane and Dublin's communities. The project will involve working with communities in the city as well in the gallery, establishing and developing strong links between the cultural institution and the communities. Schedules of innovative programs and workshops with structures capable of long term engagement will be investigated and implemented.

Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane was established in 1908 and is believed to be the oldest public gallery of Modern Art in the Western World. The founder Hugh Lane with his supporters presented Dublin with a collection of 19th and early 20th century art. Hugh Lane was also a great champion of Irish art and the gallery has the foremost collection of 20th-century Irish art. The collection has grown from 300 works in 1908 to over 2,200 in 2018. The gallery has a vibrant and ambitious schedule of temporary exhibitions, acquisitions and education projects. In the ethos of its founder, the gallery continues to support and acquire contemporary art. In recent years the gallery has received notable gifts and bequests including Francis Bacona's studio and archive and a collection of works by Sean Scully. In 1933, the gallery moved from its temporary residence to Charlemont House built in 1763.  In 2006, a new wing was built, doubling the gallery's exhibition spaces. The gallery is a registered charity and is part of Dublin City Council. See www.hughlane.ie.
