Ormond Studios | 5 Year Anniversary

Exhibitions Involving Ormond 2014, Ormond Events 2014

NEW ONETo celebrate 5 years successful running, Ormond Studios is excited to present two exhibitions featuring new and existing work from a selection of current artists and past members who have contributed to the space since its founding.

Ormond Studios was founded in 2009 by 11 recent graduates from IADT and NCAD as a non-hierarchal, self-organised art initiative for emerging artists. The ongoing aim of Ormond Studios is to provide a centrally situated, affordable and discursive workspace with facilities for emerging visual artists in Dublin that is collaboratively run and entirely artist-led.

To mark half a decade functioning as a unique creative hub in Dublin City Centre, past and present members of Ormond Studios will come together to create two exciting exhibitions. These anniversary shows will highlight the diversity of creative talent that has fed and driven the space during its five year existence, and serve as a representation and reminder the varied practices the space has been home to in this time.
