When one encounters the phrase “Artists in the City” it might bring to mind a graffiti style font and images of urban artists responding to the concrete jungle. Or, one might visualise it accompanied by yet another article on the closing of yet another artists’ studio space in the city due to classic gentrification. One such recent article described a run down area of city, cheap rents, artists move in to live and work, area becomes creatively fashionable for lattes, beards and yoga, rents go up, artists move out – the avocado-isation of the city (1). Or alternatively one might have a more romantic notion of the artist in the city, working away in garrets behind closed doors, while the neon lights zizz and the saxophone music hovers on the night air across the moonlight cityscape.

In Progress is as an exhibition of work from the artists of Talbot Studios. Located in the Monto, these artists make a living across a diverse range of creative practices, whilst sustaining a studio practice in the city. They work independently in Talbot Studios in diverse disciplines, art forms, material processes, subject matter with a wide breadth of concepts and concerns in their respective creative practices.

In Progress is an exhibition of their work and is presented as such – an affirmation of what they do as artists, what they have to do as artists to survive and sustain their practices and careers. They are engaged and invested in the creative culture of their city as creators, collaborators, participators and audience. Are they part of the super creative core contributing to the creative capital of Dublin, helping it to make it No.16 on social scientist, Richard Florida’s Creative Superstar Cities league (2)? Or maybe they are just the Creative Class of 2018….

New Works at 38th EVA International – Ireland’s Biennial, Limerick City until 8th July

Just a reminder that the 38th EVA International – Ireland’s Biennial of Contemporary Art continues until 8th July, including three of my diptychs, selected by international curator, Inti Guerrero and are on exhibition at Limerick City Gallery.

Alongside Seán Keating’s paintings of Ardnacrusha, the biennial includes works by artists from across geographies, generations, and media, addressing narratives of modernisation (in which electrification played a crucial role) and metaphors of power. Guerrero explains: “In our current state of nationalisms, hard-borders, protectionism and a complete change of course in humanity, where the liberal belief of a ‘never again’ seems to be dismantling, the word ‘international’ suddenly carries an important weight worth embracing.

New Works at EVA International – Ireland’s Biennial , Limerick City

Delighted three of my diptych paintings are selected for EVA International, Ireland’s Biennial, Limerick City selected by international curator Inti Guerrero. The paintings are exhibited in Limerick City Gallery.

EVA International – Ireland’s Biennial of contemporary art proudly presents the 38th EVA International, featuring historical, recent and commissioned works by 56 artists in exhibitions across five venues in Limerick city and an extended programme at Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin.

The 38th EVA International takes its starting point from the painting Night’s Candles are Burnt Out (1927) by Irish artist Seán Keating. The painting presents an allegory of the Irish psyche at the time of the construction of Ardnacrusha, a hydroelectric dam built that same year on the border of County Limerick. Ardnacrusha, constructed in the early twentieth century, accelerated the national economy and radically shifted the society of the new Irish state. Keating’s social realist painting depicts a host of characters set against the backdrop of the construction site of the dam, whose lives are set to change by the dawning of a new era of technological progress.

Alongside Keating’s paintings of Ardnacrusha, the biennial includes works by artists from across geographies, generations, and media, addressing narratives of modernisation (in which electrification played a crucial role) and metaphors of power. Guerrero explains: “In our current state of nationalisms, hard-borders, protectionism and a complete change of course in humanity, where the liberal belief of a ‘never again’ seems to be dismantling, the word ‘international’ suddenly carries an important weight worth embracing. Since its foundation in 1977 in Limerick, EVA has been a forerunner in understanding the world through art in a transnational, transcultural, international dialogue, presenting its contradictions, anxieties and possibilities.”
