The MART Gallery

Dublin, Ireland

MART considers its greatest resource to be the pool of artists and the nexus of like-minded people that curators Ciara Scanlan and Matthew Nevin have gathered in the course of the group’s history. MART can be seen not only in relation to traditional models of artist led organisations and their challenge to the model of artist as monolithic master, but as a response to shifting and dissolving concepts of labour, production and culture arising through the crisis in capitalism.
MART seeks to create opportunities in which practitioners are encouraged to take risks and move beyond traditional models of exhibition and art-making. It does this through inventing spaces and models for the artist to work within, positioning the conditions of production as an integral part of the artwork. MART’s evolving portfolio of initiatives aims to test and sustain contemporary art and the artist.
MART primarily supports video, new media, installation and performance, as art making practices that break new ground, that test and stretch the material and immaterial, and ever changing conventions of ‘the norm’. As a curatorial partnership Matthew Nevin & Ciara Scanlan have curated over 30 exhibitions across Ireland, UK, Europe, Japan & USA.
