The Union(s) Européenne(s) exhibition highlights the human successes of the Erasmus programme through the portraits of 22 of these families of 17 different nationalities. The exhibition was displayed outdoors in St Stephen's Green all Summer but you can still it in French at the Alliance Française.

Head off to our Twitter page, we have vouchers for the Roderic O’Conor and the Moderns, Between Paris and Pont-Aven exhibition at the National Gallery of Ireland!

Don't miss this unique opportunity to see the works of one of the unsung masters of Irish painting, and one of Ireland's main contribution to the revolution in European Art in the late nineteenth century. This exhibition examines Roderic O'Conor's evolution from impressionism to his signature expressionist style, but also places his work side-by-side with that of the artists with whom he connected and collaborated while staying in France, including VanGogh, Gauguin, Seguin, Befan, and, above all, Amiet.

National Gallery of Ireland, Merrion Square West & Clare Street, Dublin 2
