INTERPLAY – Emerging Irish Artist Residency Award Exhibition

January 31 – February 21, 2019
The Gallery | Burren College of Art | Newtown Castle | Ballyvaughan | Co. Clare



Burren College of Art is pleased to host Interplay, an exhibition of work by our 2018 Emerging Irish Artist Residency Award recipients: Conor Coady, Phoebe McDonogh, Matthew Mitchell, and Olivia Normile.

Interplay features a display of each artist’s explorations and pursuits of the multidimensional facets around their direct environment. Through the extraction of hidden qualities and processes in physical responses, these actions result in the creation of a collective visual dialogue and language.

The Emerging Irish Artist Residency Award is an annual award offered by the Burren College of Art in conjunction with artist-led gallery G126 in Galway. Each year four emerging Irish artists are selected from an open submission and given the opportunity for a focused period of producing work during a one month residency at BCA. This group of artists then work collaboratively with G126 to produce a large scale show that takes place in both galleries at a later date. EIARA started in 2014 during the Burren College of Art’s 20 year celebrations, and was conceived as a way of discovering and supporting emerging talent in Ireland’s contemporary art scene.
