Audiences can experience the works of acclaimed Belgian artist Eugeen Van Mieghem for the first time in Ireland next year, through an exhibition depicting the vibrant life of the Port of Antwerp at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane (February 9th – June 11th 2017).
Eugeen Van Mieghem: Port Life is a fascinating visual account of the pulsating life of a working port at the beginning of the 20th century. Van Mieghem’s work represents a social history, exploring themes of migration, globalisation, port society, the working community, and, the life of the artist - themes that resonate with Dublin as a port city.
Organised with the support of Dublin Port Company, the exhibition is part of Port Perspectives, Dublin Port’s arts commissioning programme to help re-establish links between the Port and the City.
The exhibition can be viewed Tuesday to Thursday 9:45 am – 6 pm, Friday 9:45 am – 5 pm, Saturday 10 am – 5 pm and Sunday 11 am – 5 pm. Admission is free of charge (voluntary contributions to the Gallery are appreciated).
