This year, Trinity College Dublin celebrates 50 years of collecting, displaying, and promoting modern and contemporary Irish and international art. In particular, we are celebrating the College Gallery Picture Hire scheme, founded during the academic year 1959-60 and still running today. The scheme allows students and staff with rooms and offices on campus to engage with art during their normal daily routines
This beautifully illustrated commemorative publication complements and develops on the exhibition series by recounting and contextualising Trinity College’s significant contribution to the development of modern and contemporary visual arts practice in Ireland, led by former Professor of Genetics, George Dawson (1927-2004).
Proceeds from the book will support new acquisitions and conservation to perpetuate opportunities for generations of students, staff, and the visiting public to engage with the visual arts at Trinity College.
