The Molesworth Gallery is one of Ireland's leading contemporary art galleries, representing some of the most accomplished and exciting artists working in the country today. We host eight solo and two curated group exhibitions annually at our gallery space in Dublin's city centre. Exhibitions are documented in gallery publications ranging from brochures to hardback books. We also collaborate with arts centres and museums to maximise public access to the work of our artists, as well as promoting them at international art fairs.
The gallery covers the ground and first floors of a large Georgian house. A changing display of work by gallery artists may be viewed in our upstairs exhibition space.
We offer an advisory service to corporate and private collectors who are building a collection or wish to source key pieces privately or at auction. We can also advise corporate collectors on building a collection in a tax-efficient manner. Artwork bought through companies, small and large, is eligible for capital tax allowances, whereby a significant portion of the value of work acquired is recoverable against corporation tax.
We also offer an art rental scheme to corporate collectors who wish to enhance their workplace environments with a changing display of art by some of Ireland's most sought-after contemporary artists, without a significant upfront capital outlay.
