Lismore Castle Arts, a not-for-profit initiative, was founded in 2005 and is committed to the presentation and promotion of contemporary visual art in Southern Ireland. It hosts exhibitions of international significance alongside a series of smaller exhibitions, projects and events as well as a comprehensive education programme.
Since opening the gallery has played host to the works of many leading international artists including Matthew Barney, Gerard Byrne, Dorothy Cross, Josephsohn, Richard Long, Eva Rothschild, Danh Vo, Ai Weiwei and TJ Wilcox.
In 2011 a second project space, St Carthage Hall, located in the town of Lismore opened. This gallery, in a former church, has presented a varied programme of exhibitions including works by Camille Henrot, Martin Healey, Roman Signer, Superflex and Corban Walker.
Lismore Castle Arts is situated in the historic gardens of Lismore Castle, which include permanent works by Roger Hiorns, Marie Lund and Franz West.
