The Irish Museum of Modern Art presents an exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Graphic Studio Dublin from 8 September 2010 – 3 January 2011. Graphic Studio Dublin was Ireland’s first fine art print studio and, through innovation and progressive thinking, it has helped establish Ireland’s reputation as the home of world class printmakers.

Graphic Studio: 50 Years in Dublin shows the range of the studio’s scope, by way of the earliest works from the five founders (Patrick Hickey, Leslie MacWeeney, Liam Miller, Elizabeth Rivers and Anne Yeats), right through to a diverse selection of artists from different practices and backgrounds, such as A.R. Penck, William Crozier, Patrick Scott, Dorothy Cross and Barry Flanagan. The exhibition also considers the newer generation of artists who are continuing this legacy by integrating print into their practices, such as artists Diana Copperwhite and Geraldine O’Neill.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a full-colour, illustrated catalogue that will contain essays by the exhibition’s curator Eimear O’Raw, as well as Aidan Dunne and Jackie Ryan, along with an introduction by Enrique Juncosa, Director of IMMA.
