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, Hatch Street and Temple Bar.
