Illuminating Art & Ideas


Illuminations is a digital-visual exhibition space in the School of English, Media and Theatre Studies at NUI Maynooth. Illuminations brings together work in the visual arts and in academia, celebrating innovation, ideas and creativity.

Situated in the Iontas building, the gallery space is built around eight LED screens, placed back-to-back in custom-designed cabinets. Supplemented by two display units which can exhibit physical artefacts, and a website which extends the gallery space, Illuminations aims to provide opportunities for education, investigation and enlightenment in and beyond the university.


Illuminations will promote work by artists, writers and researchers which stimulates ideas and provides new contexts for thinking and learning. Illuminations will provide a place where art, writing, criticism, research and teaching co-exist.

Illuminations welcomes ideas for exhibitions and collaborations. Contact us at:


Illuminations is part of the School of English, Media and Theatre Studies at NUI Maynooth. Members of the Illuminations Committee are Amanda Bent, Luke Gibbons, Colin Graham, Kylie Jarrett and Jeneen Naji.
