GUEST at Newbridge House

Newbridge House is delighted to announce the opening of a landmark new exhibition: Guest – at Newbridge House.

Fingal County Council’s Art Office in partnership with Newbridge House are delighted to launch this programme which sees contemporary art installed in one of Fingal’s best preserved heritage properties. An annual programme will see an invited Guest curator to install an exhibition of contemporary artworks throughout the house which takes inspiration from the important historic collection preserved at Newbridge. Juxtaposing old and new will draw parallels, pose questions, and animate the art collection in an exciting and sometimes challenging way.

We are thrilled to have as our inaugural Guest Curator: Marysia Wieckiewicz Carroll for summer 2021. Her exhibition New considerations of familiar settings draws its inspiration from the collecting and homemaking of Lady Betty Cobbe (1733-1806).

The exhibition brings together an exciting array of 11 women and gender-minority artists whose practices explore personal, historical, and cultural narratives through sculpture, painting, film and installation. The exhibition asks the question what would Lady Betty be collecting if she were alive today?

The exhibition forms part of the guided house tour, which run daily at 10am, 11am, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm. Due to COVID-19 restrictions capacity is limited to 10 persons per tour. For tickets and to book go to BOOK TICKETS
