‘Portrait of Northern Ireland' exhibition


Golden Thread Gallery

84-94 Great Patrick Street
Co. Belfast

The Portrait of Northern Ireland: Neither an Elegy nor a Manifesto exhibition opens to the public in the Golden Thread Gallery on Tuesday 12th October. This incredible exhibition features over 100 artists who have explored perspectives of Northern Ireland’s people and landscapes from the 1920s until the present day.

In addition to established artists such as Paul Henry, William Scott and Turner Prize nominees in our main galleries, the GTG is delighted that the exhibition will shine a light on the work of up-and-coming artists who have recently graduated from Belfast School of Art, showing in our Project Space.

Curated by Shan McAnena, the exhibition is a collaboration between the Northern Ireland Office, the Government Art Collection, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Belfast School of Art as part of the wider cultural programme of the Northern Ireland Centenary. An expert panel of representatives from these organisations and many of the leading Northern Ireland galleries, has ensured that the exhibition features an inclusive and varied range of artwork and exhibits.

Admision to the Gallery is free. Check out our website to plan your visit.
