Sculpture In Context 2011

at the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, Dublin 9.
8th September to 21st October 2011

Ten years of Sculpture at the National Botanic Gardens

This year’s Sculpture in Context exhibition celebrated 10 years at the National Botanic Gardens. It showcased the work of established and new artists taking interesting directions with exciting new work. The organising committee was delighted with the response and enthusiasm by artists who invested their time and energy since the site meeting in March, to the siting of the completed works in August.

The gardens are not only a botanical haven, and a quiet oasis on the outskirts of a modern European City, they also provide a challenging venue which gives the artist the rare opportunity of realising large scale work. It also gives the public the opportunity to ramble and explore, sometimes finding sculptures in the most unusual places.  Over 120 sculptures were displayed throughout the gardens, ponds, Great Palm House, and Curvilinear Range, with the smaller works exhibited in the gallery above the visitors’ centre.
