BINGO! marks the second manifestation of the Berlin Opticians Gallery in a physical space. For this iteration, the Gallery inhabits the stunning octagonal Exhibition Room in the City Assembly House, following the inaugural exhibition in the semi-domestic interiors of Merrion Square last year.
BINGO! presents some recent and newly commissioned artworks by ten Irish and international artists whose practice spans all art forms: painting, sculpture, photography, installation, and video. It celebrates the unlikely relationship between contemporary art and Georgian architecture, acknowledging both the moments of happy and successful co-existence and the possible tensions.
