Launching this summer, 15th July 2022, 'Páipéar' will take place in a stunning temporary exhibition space that sits adjacent to the recently renovated Central Plaza Development on Dame Street, in Dublin's city centre. This sought-after location will offer unparalleled opportunities in terms of footfall and the exposure it will grant the exhibiting artists. The space will be transformed into a purposely designed gallery which will create a dynamic, immersive environment that beautifully showcases the artwork.

The show will encompass 61 female and 54 male mid-career established artists, as well as the most promising emerging and burgeoning talent that Ireland has to offer. All artists have been invited to produce an original, previously un-exhibited work on paper - at one of three predetermined sizes - with a completely open-ended brief. Expect a diverse and eclectic range of submissions - from paintings, drawings and pastel works, to mixed media, collage and spray-painted pieces. All works will be presented framed, and are available for acquisition.
