A visual exhibition curated by artists Robyn Carey & Neil Dunne inspired by art critic Jerry Saltz’s Essay entitled : ‘The Last Days of the Art World … and Perhaps the First Days of a New One Life after the coronavirus will be very different.’

This contemporary fine art exhibition is a celebration of Art’s resilience in difficult times, exploring how creativity often thrives in uncertainty. Ten emerging and established artists present new works in a closed down Dublin city shop front.

“Whatever happens, we’re all conscripted into the service of art; we’re all volunteers. We need to play loose, loving, generous, being as creative and as unafraid as possible, adapting to change as it comes and not falling back on old, outmoded, mean, or inapplicable dogmas. We all want to go the distance for what we love. That distance has begun. Things are bleak, but batons will be and are already being passed to generations who will emerge on the other side of this who will have the brilliant chance to build a whole new art world.” – Jerry Saltz
