How great thou art: Facebook embraces Irish creativity
Dublin HQ of the social media giant is a hotbed of artistic activity and dynamism
Over the last two years, a number of artists, Irish or with strong Irish links, have participated in Facebook’s artist-in-residence programme and/or made site-specific commissioned work for its head office on Grand Canal Square next to the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.
Most of the work is of significant scale and site-specific. The programme is overseen by curator Josephine Kelliher (of the Rubicon Gallery).
