DIA DHUIT is a group exhibition featuring eight young emerging Irish artists. After recently taking part in the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) Graduate showcase, this is the artists’ first foray into the contemporary art world completely independent of an educational institution.
The title Dia Dhuit, the Gaelic translation of ‘Hello’, is a reflection on this first step being taken by a new generation of Irish creators and an act of introduction on their part. Despite a variety of mediums and themes being used across the artists, their work all stems from painting and print practices, linked by a concern with texture, colour and various aspects of the conditions of modern urban and suburban life.
After the critical response and strength of the work displayed by these individuals at their recent graduate show, Dia Dhuit promises to be an exciting demonstration of what these young artists are going to do next.
