On the occasion of the iJADE (International Journal of Art and Design Education) Conference 2017 hosted by the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, Friday 17 & Saturday 18 November, the NCAD Gallery is delighted to present a short exhibition of works by artist recipients of the Clancy Quay Studio Residency NCAD / Kennedy Wilson Ireland, featuring artists Fiona Brennan, Pat Curran, John Marshall and Séan O'Rourke.
The Clancy Quay Artist Studio is a collaborative project co-facilitated by the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) and Kennedy Wilson Ireland. Each year four graduating NCAD Access artists are selected to work full-time in the studio at Clancy Quay, the studio and utilities costs are provided by Kennedy Wilson Ireland. Through formal and informal discussions, events and exhibitions the artists engage in each other’s art practices and with the local community in Clancy Quay. The aim of the project is to support emerging artists and create a contemporary art programme for local residents in this new community. The artists are supported by NCAD staff and facilities in making the transition from college to becoming professional artists. Recepients of the 2016 award are Fiona Brennan, Pat Curran, Sean O'Rourke, John Marshall.
The iJADE conference will take place on Friday 17 & Saturday 18 November 2017 held in the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, with the theme of art and design as agent for change. Social justice has become a growing focus for many educators and practitioners in the visual arts, and the idea of art and design having agency in the process of social chance has gained traction. This year’s iJADE conference addresses this agency in the context of art and design and education, invited speakers address this topic from a variety of angles.
Clancy Quay Studio artists Information:
The Clancy Quay Studio artists are a diverse inter-disciplinary group. They are connected by a thematic concern for the effects of social, political and economic systems on marginal groups (e.g. working-class people, untrained & unemployed people, endangered animals). Through their various media, the artists will explore these concerns and attempt to create a discourse with the wider public.
The Clancy Quay artists propose to continue their individual practices in the studio, including all relevant research specific to their chosen subjects. They will continue to engage with each other’s works through in-studio discussions and their collaborative community programme. This engagement will help create a cohesive statement and body of work regarding the project and will in turn enable the interconnected exhibition of the artists’ works. We aim to connect the local community to the art world centred around the NCAD.
