Starting from today (May 19th), the venue has opened an exhibition which, if the other displays in the building are anything to go by, should be worth seeing.
Collecting the New will run until August 8th so you have a bit of time to get there, but I would leave nothing to chance and go as soon as possible.
There are 42 works – mostly acquired since 2005, including purchases, donations and loans - that make up the exposition, by 26 Irish and international artists.
Also, if you've been before – like I have – then you may remember some of the permanent displays, which form around 2,500 pieces and the museum's policy for acquisitions is designed to change "cultural landscape of the late 20th-century and the new millennium".
But you'll not just find visual joy on the inside of the building as outside in the gardens there are intricately-shaped hedgerows and benches galore, which could be handy for taking a rest on after visiting all the different sights in the gallery.
Other current displays at the venue include Vertical Thoughts: Morton Feldman and the Visual Arts, which runs until June 27th. He took his inspiration from an original project he curated called Six Painters in Houston, Texas. Photographs and record covers make up the collection, which is well worth a look if you get a chance.
