2016… Ormond Members Group Exhibition


Exhibition opening 6-8pm Thursday 18th February.
Continues Friday 19th – Sunday 21st 12-4pm
Ormond Studios, 6 Ormond Quay Lower, Dublin 1.

2016… is a spontaneous exhibition by members of Ormond Studios, an independent artist-led space in Dublin City. The title announces a here and now, whilst invoking an unknown, or perhaps an invitation to imagine. It also serves as a simple framing device, with some works emerging literally from within dimensions of 20 x 16.

Rather than adhering to a strict overarching curatorial theme, each piece represents a fleeting point in an ongoing creative practice, each with a defined direction specific to each maker, but with an open-ended, undetermined procedural trajectory.
To bring these disparate points together is to reflect on the nature of the shared studio space: a crossroads for converging and divergent pathways.

Artworks appear as both full stops and ellipses, self-contained yet loaded with the possibility inherent in the unstated, suggesting infinite permutations of form and interpretation.

Ormond Art Studios is an artist-led initiative in Dublin city and is a platform for emerging visual artists. It supports the development of arts practice through affordable studio provision, critical discourse and space for events, residencies and exhibitions. The physical studios consists of eight individual artist's spaces along with a separate area that serves as the Project Space. The Project Space offers scope for work on a larger scale, embodied practice and experimentation. It is in this space that feedback sessions, events and exhibitions happen. We believe that critical discourse is hugely beneficial to developing a professional arts practice and essential to a dynamic arts community. Ormond Art Studios encourages members to open up their practise to peer critique and facilitates lively feedback sessions, residencies, and information/skills sharing initiatives. We believe in collaboration and connect with other creative initiatives to develop a network of support for artist‐led endeavours in Dublin and beyond.
