Get Your Culture Fix At This New Exhibition Above Dublin's Fanciest Food Hall

Right, get up off the sofa and get into town, okay? We know Sunday is the day of rest and all but an exciting new exhibition should tempt you to leave your nest.

For the first time, a new exhibition space above Temple Bar's swanky food hall, Dollard & Co., will host work by contemporary Irish artist James Earley.

James' new solo show, Things Fall Apart, is stained glass like you've never seen it before. Internationally renowned for his large-scale street art, this new body of work is a celebration of stained glass and the myriad of characteristics it reveals, a re-imagining of the traditional art form, fusing centuries old techniques with contemporary processes and materials.

Since graduating from NCAD in 2003, with a BA in Visual Communications, James has been an integral part of the Irish graffiti and street art movement.  

Though they may not know him by name, James’ work is familiar to hundreds of thousands. Those who walk the streets of Dublin each day pass his 2014 mural on the outside of Blooms Hotel in Temple Bar.

This video will give you a glimpse of what his new show is all about...

Things Fall Apart is on from now until Sunday June 3rd, 2018 at Dollard House, 5 Wellington Quay, Dublin 2. The exhibition will be open daily from midday to 7pm.

Pop in, get your culture fix, and then take a stroll around the beautifully restored food hall itself.
