A print exhibition in support of Marriage Equality! No Fixed Abode presents All You Need is Love, a print exhibition in support of Marriage Equality, 6pm Thursday May 1st 2014, at The Copper House Gallery. The exhibition will showcase work by over 20 of Ireland’s established and emerging artists, with several pieces from international contributors. The exhibition will be opened by Panti, exquisite drag queen, self-described accidental and occasional gay rights activist and living national treasure. All You Need is Love is proudly supported by TXFM.
For one night only, All You Need is Love brings together works from a wealth of talented Irish artists. Limited edition prints on Hahnemühle fine art paper inspired by the theme All You Need Is Love will be on sale for €30, with all profits going to Marriage Equality. A number of artists have also donated collectable one-off pieces for sale on the night. Contributing artists include ADW, Danleo, Will St. Leger, Denise Nestor, Matthew Griffin and London-based design studios Pony and Villalba Lawson. DJs from Dublin's best Saturday night gay club, Mother, will provide the soundtrack to this event.
Marriage Equality is a not-for-profit, grassroots advocacy organisation whose goal is to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in Ireland through the extension of civil marriage rights to same-sex couples. The contributing artists, the event sponsors and No Fixed Abode share this vision and hope that through this exhibition we can raise funds for Marriage Equality to continue their amazing work ahead of the referendum on same-sex marriage in 2015.
The Copper House Gallery is a proud supporter of and advocate for Marriage Equality and LGBT rights and has provided a platform for discussing sexual and gender identity through shows such as Attitudes, an exhibition of illustrations by Eoin Coveney and Spleen and Ideal, a photographic exhibition by Tiane Doan na Champassak, which ran at The Copper House Gallery in association with the Dublin Pride Festival 2013. A selection of these works will also be on display on the night. Featured visual by Fintan Wall.
