The RUA Annual Exhibition (RUA) is the most eagerly anticipated exhibition in the Northern Irish cultural calendar, providing a unique platform for acclaimed artists and emerging talent to showcase their artwork in the fabulous galleries at the Ulster Museum. It is also a chance for the public to engage with a fully democratic, free admission exhibition.
The exhibition contains examples of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video and more. Some of the works reflect the times we are living and allude to isolation, social distancing and surviving in Covid times. Other works share deep messages with hope, humour, passion and integrity.
Before opening the exhibition the RUA will host a series of Wednesday lunchtime talks at their new premises on Rosemary Street.
The lunchtime programme features Betty Brown talking about Outsider Art at 1pm on 13th October, Noelle McAlinden on Art & Wellbeing on 20th October and Amanda Croft will talk about the Diploma Collection on 27th October.
The Annual exhibition can also be experienced online using state of the art technology to create an extraordinary virtual tour that brings art to the people wherever they are.
