It is with great regret that we must announce that there will be no Sculpture in Context exhibition in 2024.

Sculpture in Context is the largest and most prestigious sculpture exhibition in Ireland and continues to be run on a voluntary basis by a committee of  professional artists.

We continue to promote and raise the profile of sculpture in Ireland by showcasing both emerging and established artists and by providing a platform for graduates and young artists starting out on their careers.
