The Douglas Hyde Gallery is a publicly funded contemporary art gallery situated within the historical setting of Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland.
When the Gallery opened in 1978, it was for a number of years Ireland's only public gallery of contemporary art. Today, in an abundance of smaller galleries and exhibition spaces in Dublin, The Douglas Hyde Gallery continues to sustain its reputation for holding exhibitions by some of the most established and well-regarded Irish and international artists working today.
The Douglas Hyde Gallery consists of two exhibition spaces that are used to show concurrent exhibitions, which often have a relating theme or tone.
Famous quotes containing the words douglas and/or gallery:
“I want to die while you love me,
And never, never see
The glory of this perfect day
Grow dim, or cease to be!”
—Georgia Douglas Johnson (18861966)
“It doesnt matter that your painting is small. Kopecks are also small, but when a lot are put together they make a ruble. Each painting displayed in a gallery and each good book that makes it into a library, no matter how small they may be, serves a great cause: accretion of the national wealth.”
—Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (18601904)
