2×2 Part 2 Residency / Exhibition Open Call- Now Accepting Submissions
126 is thrilled to invite applications from established artists within its membership for the second phase of 2×2, a project that teams talented graduates with established or mid-career artists to develop a dual exhibition through collaborative residency. The project will be augmented by a project publication bringing fresh voices to bear on the concerns at the heart of the project.
Part I sees paint graduate Shane Berkery collaborate with photographer Ruby Wallis. Their collaborative residency takes place in April with a dual exhibition in August at 126.
Part II features talented textile graduate Katie Moore. The collaborative residency will take place in July 2016 for an exhibition in October 2016 at 126.
‘The work I make comes from a feeling of being compelled to make it, giving the topic a voice, telling a story, an act of memory.’
Katie Moore is a visual artist based in co. Mayo. She recently graduated from the Centre for Creative Arts and Media (GMIT) Galway with a BA First Class Honours in Design and Textiles and was shortlisted for the RDS Student of the year award. She uses textiles, stitching and installation in addition to drawing and video to create visual experiences of the world.
