The fabulous GalleryX, who’s dedication to the eclectic and diverse side of contemporary art, will be launching a new exhibition this Thursday May 15th and Overdrive urges you to drop in and experience the exquisite talent on display as well as GalleryX’S awesome team that is Giovanni and Fiona. So step outside the box and step inside MAKING OUT – The Exquisite Diversity of Desire!


GalleryX is delighted to present “MAKING OUT – The Exquisite Diversity of Desire” – an exhibition in support of the #YesEquality campaign.

The exhibition gathers the work of an eclectic mix of Irish, Irish-based and international artists. Some of them are well known in this country, like Jim Fitzpatrick, Cyril Helnwein or Darran Robinson, while others are artists of international standing that have not been seen in Ireland before.

We believe that all types of desire and gender identity should be cherished and respected equally.

The artists were inspired by this theme to present works that cherish all forms of love and identity. Love between women, between men, between men and women; love between two people, five people, or many more; gender identity that transcends the male and female stereotypes – all to produce wonderful and surprising combinations.
