DIT Grad Show_11 now on


9th June 2011

DIT Graduate Show 2011 officially opens today and will run in select venues throughout Dublin city centre until Friday, 24 June.  Open to the public, and free of charge, DIT Grad Show_11 showcases the immense creativity and talent of final year students across an array of disciplines in DIT.

The most wide-ranging graduate exhibition in the country,  the Show includes work from DIT final-year students of fine art, visual communications, photography, architecture, interior and furniture design, design display and product design as well as music recitals from final year students of DIT’s Conservatory of Music and Drama.

The exhibition is a wonderful celebration of the skills of DIT students, and affords members of the public a fantastic opportunity to see the work of some of this country’s emerging artists, designers, architects, and musicians.

The exhibition includes a range of innovative and exciting work ranging from painting, sculpture, video, installation, image making, digital design and typographic design, to functional design of furniture and interior design, visual merchandising, and new product design.  Indeed, the variety of work on display promises an assortment of experiences from the surprising to the challenging and the innovative to the simply beautiful.

An annual showcase, this exhibition is a highlight of the academic year both for final-year students and their lecturers and mentors.  The diversity of works being displayed and performed over the next couple of weeks is a reminder of the wide range of educational disciplines with which DIT is involved.   The exhibition represents the culmination of four years of full-time study and gives our students the opportunity to showcase their immense creativity, talent, and hard work in a public arena.

All exhibitions and performances are open to the public and free of charge. Exhibitions and performances will be taking place in a number of venues across Dublin city including DIT Portland Row, DIT Bolton Street, DIT Linen Hall, DIT Rathmines, Chatham Row, Kings In Street, the Complex, Smithfield and Temple Bar.

DIT would encourage people to come and see and to support the efforts of this year’s final year students.  In extending the invitation to members of public, Prof. Brian Norton, DIT President “ I can assure anyone who visits one of the many exhibitions and performances taking place that they will not just enjoy the event but they will be amazed at the talent and skills of our graduating students.”
