Kevin Kavanagh

Gallerist and Director

Kevin Kavanagh has been working in the Visual Arts since 1994 when he set up Jo Rain gallery in Temple Bar as a project space for artists. Subsequently moved to Great Strand Street at the end of 1998 and started Kevin Kavanagh Gallery which later moved to Chancery Lane in late 2008 where he currently operates. He read Economics at Trinity College Dublin from 1984 to 1988.


Interests: I like working with artists to present shows at the gallery and in other venues in Ireland and sometimes abroad.I like all forms of Contemporary art but find it more feasible and practical to work with painters.Also publish books with artists which involves working with a designer who liases with the printer, commissioning a writer to write a text and a photographer to document the work.
