Qompendium is an evolving and ever-changing platform for philosophy, art, culture and science, represented by a series of print publications: magazines, books and monographs. Furthermore, it is enriched by a gallery concept, a work shop and a fast-moving online portal.
The Model, home of The Niland Collection, is one of Ireland’s leading contemporary arts centres. Built in 1862 as a Model School, the present building has been extended twice.
The Model re-opens May Day with the vibrant exhibition "Dorm." Twenty-two international artist collectives will transform the building into an unprecedented, all-encompassing art project. With a nod to the political events of May 1968, histories of art collectivism, and as a parody of an art fair, the building will be filled with exhibitions, concerts, screenings and performances all aimed at the social imagination.
