The European Expo is a series of exhibitions and seminars over the course of 2020 that celebrate national and European culture and co-operation, with the European Investment Bank art exhibition at its core.
Over the course of 2020 it will showcase Irish and other EU cultures, through education, entertainment and information. Taking the form of exhibitions to educate us about the work of the EU institutions, debates about the big issues facing the EU and our region and, of course fun participatory events highlighting the common ties which bind us together. At its heart is an exhibition from the European Investment Bank Art Collection, called Belonging, based in venues across the city and curated by the Hunt Museum.
