Not In Alphabetical Order Volume 2

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Council’s Municipal Art Collection, in 2019, Fingal Arts Office presented a major exhibition, ‘Estuary’, curated by Una Sealy RHA, James English RHA, Joshua Sex and Sanja Todorovic. The exhibition was accompanied by a second volume of ‘Not in Alphabetical Order’ highlighting some of the latest acquisitions to the collection. Over 200 artworks by a broad selection of artists have been acquired since the collection began in 1994. This companion publication includes an introduction by the County Arts Officer Rory O’ Byrne and an essay ‘Why We Collect’ by Cristín Leach, Art Critic, Writer, Broadcaster and Journalist. Artists were also invited to comment on their particular work which provided an insight in to their creative process and was accompanied by a reflection on its inclusion in the collection by either Rory O’ Byrne, Sarah O’Neill, Deputy Arts Officer or Caroline Cowley, Public Arts Coordinator.
