  • Launch: 6pm, Friday 15th July 2022
  • Running: Through to September 2022
  • Location: Central Plaza, 6-8 College Green, Dublin 2

Hang Tough Contemporary is thrilled to announce its most ambitious project to date: a large-scale exhibition of 115 original works entitled ‘Páipéar’. This ground-breaking arts event will comprise a dynamic selection of prestigious Irish artists - as well as artists whose practice is based in Ireland - who have been invited to submit an original work on paper. All submissions have been created exclusively for this exhibition. This exhibition is made possible by Hines.

Launching this summer, ‘Páipéar’ will take place in a stunning temporary exhibition space located at Central Plaza 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. Our hope is that this element of freedom will encourage exploration and in-depth investigation of specific themes within the artists’ own practice, and culminate in a truly breathtaking collection on an unprecedented scale. All works will be presented framed, and are available for acquisition.

Expect a diverse and eclectic range of submissions - from paintings, drawings and pastel works, to mixed media, collage and spray-painted pieces - and so by standardising the medium to that of the humble page, we will be able to unify these works into a cohesive collection that represents and endorses the abundance of national talent.

The exhibition will launch on July 15th and will run into September 2022, offering a substantial exhibition run-time.
