Last chance to see MAC International Exhibition
Over 90,000 visitors flocked to the MAC over the Christmas holidays to see the 18 works of the shortlisted finalists of the 2016 MAC International Ulster Bank Prize.
The exhibition opened in October when the Slovenian artist Jasmina Cibic was announced as the winner of the £20,000 Ulster Bank prize for her work, Tear Down and Rebuild. The exhibition finishes Sunday, 19th February.
The competition attracted over 1,000 entrants from across the globe, and the 18 shortlisted works are drawn from artists across Europe, USA and south America.
Anne McReynolds, chief executive of the MAC, said it had attracted visitors from across Northern Ireland and beyond.
“Over the Christmas period we had more than 90,000 visitors. Exhibitions like this are an extremely important way for exciting innovative artists to build their reputation, and those on the 2016 shortlist all have bright futures ahead of them. This may be the last chance to see these works on display in Belfast.”
