‘Ormond Stew’ is influenced by the artistic practices of the members currently residing in Ormond Studios from the perspective of its newest members.

The exhibition examines how practices can exist and influence each other in this artist-led initiative.

It aims to challenge and reflect upon the creative atmosphere in such an environment, and is an experiment meant to encourage conversation and integration among it’s members.

A series of conversations were conducted amongst members in the realizing of the show.
Through the course of these meetings, thematic language and common themes arose that helped shaped the show.

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.
