Minister of State Brian Hayes and Minister of State Lucinda Creighton today announced details of an exhibition of Irish contemporary art that will tour a number of prestigious European venues to celebrate our EU Presidency and our 40 years as a member of the European Union.
The 40/40/40 exhibition comprises works from the Office of Public Works (OPW) managed State Art Collection by 40 artists under the age of 40, who are Irish or are based in Ireland.  The exhibition includes photography, drawing, sculpture and painting to represent the diversity of current visual art practices which have been drawn from over 15,000 pieces managed by OPW that are usually located in the public buildings throughout Ireland.

The exhibition will be inaugurated in the Conde Duque Cultural Centre in Madrid on 20 March and is also scheduled to travel to Warsaw and Rome during the Irish Presidency.
