Beginning in 2015, Burren College of Art annually offers the Emerging Irish Artist Residency Award. Candidates include recent graduates and emerging artists residing in Ireland who are highly motivated and would like the opportunity to receive the following:
• A large artist’s studio for the month of October 2017 with access to all college facilities.
• Exhibit work in a group show in two venues: BCA Gallery/ G126 Galway
• Opportunity to present a lecture and engage with the College community at BCA.
We welcome applications from artists working in any medium including: Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, Photography, Performance Art and New Media.
Four selected artists will receive a free one-month residency, including individual studio space and access to all college facilities during the month of October. They will curate and organise a group show based on their time in the Burren and their shared experience, which will be held in the BCA Gallery and will travel to G126 Gallery in Galway, in the following Spring. Suitable candidates also have the opportunity to present a lecture at the College and engage with students and the broader College community.
