MAC International is the MAC's first ever open arts prize, which offered professional artists worldwide the opportunity to exhibit in the MAC.
A substantial prize of £20,000 has been awarded to the artist deemed to have made an outstanding contribution to the exhibition. This is the largest art prize in Ireland and one of the few major prizes in the UK.
The exhibition, which runs across all three MAC galleries, offers you the very best in contemporary visual art across all art forms including sculpture, painting, photography, film, installation and performance.
MAC International has built on the innovative visual art practice developed by the MAC and offers a similar experience to the Turner Prize in Derry-Londonderry as part of 2013's City of Culture.
A jury of respected international curators whittled down over 1,000 entries to the final shortlist of exhibiting artists before finally selecting one winner on Thursday 30 October, 2014.
The winner of MAC International 2014 is Mairéad McClean.
