Meeting House Square

Temple Bar, Dublin 2

How does the horse look to contemporary eyes? For thousands of years a fundamental part of life, more recently the horse has been removed to the realms of sport and leisure. And yet these wonderful animals still exert a powerful draw on the imagination. Equally, as a staple of art since people first painted the walls of their caves, what do today’s leading artists make of the form? These questions will be explored and celebrated at the Gallery of Photography Temple Bar in a fascinating exhibition specially curated for DCNYF 2014. This free exhibition includes photography, video, painting and works on paper by Christopher Barr, Yong Jin, Anita Groener, Simon Reilly, and other leading artists. Workshops with Yong Jin will also take place during the Festival.
