Port Perspectives is Dublin Port Company’s overall commissioned series of original artworks and installations for 2017 which aims to strengthen the bond between Dublin Port and the city.
Through an open call process three projects were commissioned to create a series of site- specific public artworks. Each of these commissions responded specifically to the built environment, local areas, history and context of Dublin Port. New works by Sheelagh Broderick Port Walks, Silvia Loeffler Transit Gateway and AEMI & Cliona Harmey port | river | city have been unveiled throughout 2017.
These commissions were part of a larger programme of activity in 2017 which included; Eugeen Van Mieghem: Port Life, a new exhibition sponsored by Dublin Port Company which showed earlier in 2017 at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane. The exhibition was supported by a programme of seminars and educational and outreach initiatives. Port Perspectives also includes an arts engagement programme curated by Declan McGonagle and the sponsorship of Jesse Jones Tremble Tremble, who represented Ireland at the 57th International Venice Biennale.
