Event Details

The name of this exhibition was inspired by the current address of the Olivier Cornet Gallery. The fantastic show is co-curated by art historian and author Arran Henderson, whose research into the area was used by the featured artists as a jumping off point for their work. Arran will be the guest speaker for the exhibition.

The show will feature works by gallery artists Mark Doherty, Eoin Mac Lochlainn, Michelle Byrne, Adrienne Symes, Jordi Forniés, Hugh Cummins, Conrad Frankel, Kelly Ratchford and Jason Lowe. Eve Parnell, Gerard Cox and Catherine Ryan will also exhibit works.

The pieces on display aim to shine a light on the vivid history of 5 Cavendish Row and the surrounding areas. The artists have used the Rotunda hospital and the pleasure gardens as inspiration as well the political upheaval present at a time when Michael Collins took up his residency in Number 5.

Discover the long hidden secrets of this incredible space and track the history of the area, from the earliest roots right up to pirate radio stations and be swept along by the thought provoking work of these talented artists.
