The team behind Dublin’s GalleryX have surpassed all expectations from the stiff upper lipped critics and will be moving their operation to the bustling city center location of South William Street, just minutes from Dublin’s shopping district, Grafton Street. To celebrate the gallery’s new location, Overdrive can reveal that a magnificent exhibition titled “MASQUERADE’ will be launching on October 23rd and running through until 22nd November.

This collection of mixed media works by artists from all over the world explores the universal theme of masks and masking; its psychology and expression. Sometimes linked with the sinister and threatening, masks can also manifest as an expression of something more internal and emotional.
According to the official press release the gallery selected works that are diverse in both their insight into the theme and also in their materiality and tone. Hailing from different countries and differing artistic backgrounds, it is interesting to experience the dark richness of this body of work, once assembled, and their deceptively chaotic expression.

Artists include (in no particular order):
William Gibb Forsyth
After nearly one year in the gallery’s current location, which was at times hard to find, they will be moving to a new and much more central venue – located at the Wicklow Street end of South William Street, the new GalleryX is located on the first floor above the John Rush pub (entrance to the right of the pub). Look out for the red X!
In the meanwhile, the exhibition GLORIOUS SHAME is still on view at our current location in 3 Herbert Street until Friday 16th. Check out the video below.
