National Gallery of Ireland & Arthur Cox LLP announce new Corporate Partnership

The National Gallery of Ireland is pleased to announce a new three-year corporate partnership with Arthur Cox LLP. The partnership begins with Arthur Cox sponsoring the Lavery. On Location exhibition, which is the highlight of the Gallery’s autumn-winter programme.

Over a three-year period, Arthur Cox will also provide vital funding through the Gallery’s corporate partnership programme, helping to support a wide range of education programmes, special exhibitions and projects.  
Lavery. On Location will present 74 artworks by the internationally renowned Irish painter Sir John Lavery (1856-1941). Lavery enjoyed great critical and commercial success during his life, and was the only Irishman to receive the Freedom of both Dublin (1935) and Belfast (1930). 
During his professional life, Lavery never travelled for business or pleasure without his painting kit. The major exhibition will focus on some of the key international destinations depicted in Lavery’s art from Scotland to Palm Springs. Special features will be the works produced at Grez-sur-Loing, during his ‘happiest days’. There are also artworks and studies of scenes in Ireland, Italy, Morocco, Spain, Switzerland and Tunisia and depictions of cities from Glasgow, London, Venice, Cannes and New York. 
Lavery. On Location is proudly supported by Arthur Cox, Exhibition Partner. The exhibition is curated by Professor Kenneth McConkey, Emeritus Professor of Art History at the University of Northumbria and Dr Brendan Rooney, Head Curator and Curator of Irish Art at the National Gallery of Ireland. It is on view in the Beit Wing from 7 October 2023 to 14 January 2024. The exhibition is organised by the National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin, in collaboration with National Museums NI and National Galleries of Scotland. Tickets are from €5. 
Dr Caroline Campbell, Director of National Gallery of Ireland said: “We are proud to announce this new partnership with Arthur Cox, which begins with this well-known firm sponsoring our forthcoming exhibition Lavery. On Location. Over the three-year period, we will also engage with Arthur Cox through our well-established corporate partnership programme. The support of our corporate partners is vital to the Gallery, allowing us to expand our programmes and reach a wider audience.” 
Geoff Moore, Managing Partner of Arthur Cox said: “Our relationship with the arts has evolved over many years. Art can sustain and inspire communities, and we hope this partnership with the National Gallery of Ireland will help the Gallery further widen the reach of its educational programmes and special projects, making art accessible for all. We are particularly pleased to support Lavery. On Location, bringing together important works reflecting the artist’s travels and underlining his reputation as one of the most important Irish artists of the twentieth century.” 
Corporate partnerships with the Gallery offer the opportunity to work with Ireland’s premier cultural institution and its range of exhibitions and programmes.
This partnership with Arthur Cox follows similar collaborations with Bank of America, ESB, Grant Thornton, SMBC Aviation Capital, Zurich Insurance plc and more. The Corporate Partnership programme offers companies a range of benefits from tickets to exhibitions and openings, behind-the-scenes tours, exhibition sponsorship opportunities and exclusive access for corporate events to the Gallery’s spectacular spaces.
