National Botanic Gardens, Thursday 5th September - Friday 18th October

Sculpture in Context 2019 – A thought-provoking collection of work that bridges the gap between art and nature, organic forms, and man-made objects. The natural setting of the National Botanic Gardens will play host to an impressive collection of contemporary works by over 120 Irish and international artists. Over 140 sculptures, from the surreal and simple to the fantastical, will be found nestling in the shrubberies and standing in the shade of the trees throughout the extensive gardens, as well as throughout the ponds, Great Palm House, and Curvilinear Range, with smaller works exhibited in the Gallery in the Visitor Centre.

On Saturdays throughout the exhibition, you will have a rare opportunity to join one of the participating artists for a guided tour through the exhibition to gain an insight into Ireland's largest outdoor and indoor sculpture exhibition.

Class

Pavilion Theatre

A parent-teacher meeting goes very wrong in CLASS – a new play about learning difficulties: in school, in life, wherever. Brian and Donna’s son is nine years old, and he’s struggling. That’s what his teacher says. Says he should see a psychologist. But Brian and Donna – recently separated – never liked school, never liked teachers. So are they going to trust this one? And should they? CLASS is an explosive triple-confrontation in a classroom over learning difficulties, love and entitlement.
