About this event

The Douglas Hyde is delighted to present the first institutional exhibition in Ireland by renowned artist Uri Aran. Titled Take This Dog for Example, Aran’s exhibition presents new and ongoing works layered throughout the space of Gallery 1.

31 March – 25 June 2023, Wed to Sunday.

Opening Night: Thur. 30 March, 6pm – 8pm

Aran’s visual language ranges from text and time-based work to the assembly of familiar everyday objects, which he processes, combines and unites to create ensembles that hover over the boundary of the familiar and the unexpected. In Take This Dog for Example, materials and the language of learning trace through multi-faceted works, from Sesame Street’s Ernie (without his Bert) to study desks, from blackboards to slide projectors and projection stands, alongside a library of composed letters. These ensembles are familiar and disconcerting at the same time, resulting in encounters that are simultaneously playful and deeply sombre.
