Overview on MART Studios:
MART is the largest supplier of independent, affordable space for the arts, cultural and creative community in Dublin city. We now support over 120 members in 6 studio buildings across Dublin. MART firmly believes in the self-determining artist and art organisation as vital societal and cultural catalyst. It is also a provocation on the role of action in the production of identities; individual and collective, local and global. Constructing culture as action, this framework asks artists to reflect not on what art is, but what art does. With this in mind, creative and conceptual risk-taking is proposed as a key strategy in the production of knowledge that can lead to the possibility of being self-determining. Supporting the professional development of our artists is a key part of our remit. Our artist members work across a diverse range of practices which encompasses painting, sculpture, print, drawing, illustration, digital art, photography, film and performance art. Providing the members with an opportunity to exhibit their work publicly gives MART a chance to showcase the expanse of artistic output we support while also allowing the artists to raise their profile, widen their access to audiences and sell their work.
This exhibition has kindly been supported by The Arts Council of Ireland.
