Fire Station Artists’ Studios in Dublin, Ireland invites curators to apply for short term flexible residencies in Fire Station for 2017/18.
Located in Dublin’s north inner city, Fire Station Artists’ Studios was established in 1993 to support professional visual artists. It provides ten subsidised combined living and working studios for Irish and international artists as well as large scale sculpture workshop facilities for day hire.
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. Through these residencies Fire Station aims to build links and foster collaborations between Irish artists, curators, art institutions and their artistic peers internationally.
During this period, Fire Station facilitates a series of studio visits and meetings with artists and professionals involved in the Irish contemporary arts sector. The residency duration is one week to one month, depending on needs of the curator, with no structured outcome prescribed. This residency aims to foster and develop new connections and opportunities within Ireland and internationally for visual artists and curators.
