Fire Station Artists’ Studios (FSAS), in Dublin, Ireland invites international curators to apply for flexible residencies throughout 2019. A stay at FSAS can last from one week to one month.
The aim of this residency programme is to provide opportunities for international curators to familiarise themselves with the Irish visual art scene, undertake research and make connections that will evolve into the future. Through these residencies FSAS aims to build associations between Irish artists, curators, art institutions and their artistic peers internationally.
During each residency FSAS encourages curators to simultaneously tease out their own research interests as well as conduct a series of studio visits and meetings with artists and professionals involved in the Irish contemporary arts sector.
The advantage for an international curator visiting Dublin and Fire Station Artists’ Studios is easy access to a dynamic and growing visual art scene within a compact city that is manageable on foot. Our Dublin city centre location is within walking distance of all major galleries both public and private and artists’ studios which are located close to Dublin city centre. In addition FSAS is located close to national rail and bus transport lines with easy access to the cities of Cork, Galway, Limerick and Belfast which all have distinct and vibrant art scenes.
Fire Station’s established reputation spanning 25 years of work helps with key personnel contacts in both public and private art institutions, such as directors, curators, as well as with independent curators and artists.
