DIT Graduates turn Temple bar into Exhibition of Art

04 June 2003 Dublin Institute of Technology Graduates today launched an innovative art exhibition in Dublin's Templebar.

From 04-12 June 2003 Art, Design, Photography Film & Broadcasting Graduates of the Dublin Institute of Technology will exhibit their work in and around the Temple Bar area. Created by the students themselves, the work on display represents six degree and Certificate programmes in DIT's Faculty of Applied Arts.

Traditionally student work is viewed in the educational context or in the rarefied atmosphere of a gallery space. However this new and innovative approach will ensure the general public can enjoy the work without the limitations of a single theme or medium.

A wide range of pieces will be on exhibition including paintings, drawings, photographs, print, sculpture, furniture, video and installation pieces. Both retail and gallery spaces, along with exterior public spaces will be used to show the pieces off to their best.

Venues in Temblebar include the Viking Centre, the Gallery of Photography, Arthouse, and the National Photographic Archive. There will also be exhibitions in DIT Sackville Place and in the former Manchester United Store on the corner of Westmoreland Street

According to John Short of DIT's School of Art, Design and Printing; 'The aim of this week-long event is to attract greater public awareness of DIT's creative programmes and talented graduates. These students are poised to launch themselves into their various professional fields and their work shows an impressive level of attainment. This event will provide a launch pad for our students work into the public arena.'
