Curators Visits to Talbot Studios December 2016
A group of the artists in Talbot Studios came together to invite a range of curators for scheduled visits to the individual artist’s studios. We had a great uptake on the invitation and over two days – Thursday 8th December and Friday 9th December – seven curators including – Olivier Cornet (Olivier Cornet Gallery), Seán Kissane (IMMA), Mary Cremin (Temple Bar Gallery), Eoin O’Dowd (Eight Gallery), Sheena Barrett (The LAB), Niamh Brown (Ormston House) and Michelle Doyle (Independent) visited the studios.
The artists involved were : Harry Burton, Jane Fogarty, David Lunney, Gráinne Tynan, Emer Tynan, Susane Wawra, Andrew Simpson and Claire Halpin.
The event was a great success with very positive feedback from all the curators and great conversations and critiques on the diverse range of practices in the studios over the two days!
We hope to arrange a similar event for curators in Spring 2017.
