3 Days (Left) in 1 Room
Studio 6, Temple Bar Gallery & Studios, Dublin 2,
Curated with Caroline Cowley with input from curator Claire Behan,
‘Studio 6 has been a creative centre for the artists, curators and critical writers of the MA in Visual Arts Practices course in Dublin for the last 4 years. But MaVis and Studio 6 are breaking up…. from September, this plain white room will no longer be this centre - Mavis is moving on...but what of this plain white room? What of all the people that have passed through its doors - all the shows, all the debate, and the emotion. If walls had ears and eyes…This exhibition is a reflection of the artistic energy and output Studio 6 has been the site for, a consideration of the MaVis experience and a last hurrah….’
For this exhibition co-curator Caroline Cowley and I invited all MaVis alumni and current students to create work. This included a mixture of site-specific pieces, selected older works and a collection of works on paper available for purchase for the nominal fee of €50. Exhibited work was by Beth O’Halloran, Paul Murnaghan, Brian Duggan, Mark Garry, Aileen Lambert and Roisin Cunningham. New works on paper were by Padraic E Moore, Helen Carey, Elaine Byrne, Fiona Fullam, Sinead Curran, Maeve Mulrennan, Dan Chester, Kitty Rogers, Susan Thomson, Linda Shevlin, Denise McDonagh, Celine Sheridan, Elaine Hurley, Roisin Ni Maoilearca, Sarah Lincoln, Terry Markey, Stephen Blades, Aileen Lambert, Helen Hughes, Bea McMahon, Sally Timmons, Marguerite O’Molloy, Claire Behan, Monica Flynn, Sinead Hackett, Orla Whelan, Deirdre Morrisey, Dee Ambrose, Colleen Lambe, Hilary Williams, Tom Flanagan, Sarah Hurl, Jennie Guy, Vanessa Marsh, Dara McGrath and Dawn Williams.
