Dublin 2, Co. Dublin
The exhibition Georgian National Costume commemorates the centenary of the establishment of the First Democratic Republic of Georgia. Georgian national costume vividly reflects the history of Georgia, the values and cultural diversity of its people. This exhibition presents photographs of Georgian national clothing from the collection of the Georgian State Museum of Theatre, Music, Film and Choreography – Art Palace.
The costumes range in style from the middle ages to the end of the 20th century, and present an insight into the culture and history of Georgia, the first nation in the Caucasus region to produce fabric. Many of the examples shown here are typical of the sumptuous garments worn by Georgia’s noble and royal families. As a key processional space that was once used by lavishly attired monarchs, viceroys and nobles, but which is today at the heart of a republic, the State Corridor at Dublin Castle serves as a relevant and thought-provoking backdrop for this photographic display.
