Sculpture in Context

‘Experience art beyond the museum walls when Sculpture in Context takes up residence in Dublin’s National Botanic Gardens. Follow the sculpture map to discover art everywhere, flowering in the herbaceous borders, hanging from the trees, floating amongst the water lilies and appearing out of the undergrowth. Ranging in size and materials, the works of art represent the richly diverse character of Irish and International contemporary sculpture today and is the largest and most exciting outdoor sculpture exhibition in Ireland.’

Set up in 1985 by sculptors, whose aim was to work on behalf of fellow sculptors to provide space for exhibiting work of sculptors in venues outside the normal gallery context. Calnan & Anhoj have exhibited since 2009.
