International Artists Exchange
Ormond Studios 26th and 27th May 2012
Ormond Studios was proud to be part of BLOCK T’s 2012 LINK Cultutrefest intiative.
The weekend festival showcased and celebrated the culture, art and people that make up the diverse community that exists in Smithfield and its surrounding areas.
Ormond linked in with LINK Cultutrefest’s international partners, Château de Servières in Marseille, Castelo d’If and Platafórma Revolver in Lisbon plus local art space Flatpack Studios.Ormond Studio member Martina McDonald is one of twenty selected Dublin based artists participating in the International Artists Exchange between Dublin studios and studios in Lisbon and Marseille. This project focused on developing a model for a continuing transnational exchange programme. LINK CULTUREFEST facilitated a dialogue between art spaces and professionals in the area, with the purpose of developing lasting national and international relationships across the cultural field. In May 2012 Ormond Studios hosted an exhibition of works by four artists participating in the programme:
