About the Exhibitions Database

The NIVAL Exhibitions Database has been compiled to improve public access to the Library's extensive collection of files documenting art and design exhibitions in Ireland.  The files contain catalogues, press material and ephemera on more than 10,000 solo and group exhibitions from the period 1900 to the present.

The Exhibitions Database is a reference resource providing basic details on Irish exhibitions including title, date, venue, and artists represented.  A visit to the library is recommended to researchers seeking a comprehensive view of the actual files.

Scope and Content:

Curated by Sagit Mezamer in collaboration with Bill Drummond, Zippy Kearney, Tracey Moberly, and Raymond Watson. The Curfew Tower has been active as a residency program for many years and has an established and strong track record within the contemporary art scene in the UK and Ireland. There are few arts venues located in ‘rural regions’ that have this important national status; The Tower brings art from the capitals to the local. 'Nothing But Longing' will bring together the accumulation of the overall experiences of the artists residing in the Tower during 2015-16. The exhibition will be composed of new works by emerging and established artists, who were were committed to the Tower’s confined living conditions, staying alone for a one month period. The works presented in the show will create a multi layered scope combining site specific installations, commissioned works, archival footages, performances and more. http://curfewtower.com
