About the Lecture

The City Assembly House, the new headquarters of the Society, was built by the Society of Artists in Ireland between 1766 and 1771 with the aim of promoting the work of Irish artists and providing an academy for the arts. At the time of its construction it stood as the first purpose built public art gallery in either Britain or Ireland and possibly in Europe.
