Introduction / A/Political

In 2017, a/political and Rua Red, Dublin, announced a major partnership through a series of exhibitions that will see many of the contemporary art world’s foremost socially and politically engaged artists respond to the unique context of South Dublin County. Situated in Tallaght, County Dublin, Rua Red serves a dynamic, multicultural and predominantly young population; an important and necessary space to draw out dialogues between artists and the local communities, many of whom are unlikely to encounter these works in another context.
