Intro Text 

The biennial Open Exhibition in the Municipal Gallery, dlr LexIcon, Dún Laoghaire will take place from Friday 8 December 2017 to Sunday 21 January 2018. The 2017 exhibition is selected by Gemma Tipton, journalist, writer and critic of contemporary art and architecture; the theme is Arrival.

Arrival always implies a journey, but it doesn’t have to be physical. It can be arrival at an idea, or an insight, something finished, something understood. It’s about that moment when you suddenly just know you’ve got there – wherever “there” may be. Making art can be an arrival. So too can looking at it.  Gemma Tipton

dlr County Council will present an award of €1,000 to the overall winner of the Open Exhibition and two runner up prizes of €250 each. The exhibition will be accompanied by a Learning Programme including talks, tours and workshops.
