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.

Applicants should be willing to develop work with the graduate artist as a peer not a studio assistant or intern. In your application you should identify why you intend to work with the artist in question and why you think you would collaborate effectively with them.
This is a satellite residency. While Katie will be based in a studio in Galway, we appreciate that artists that apply may have other commitments or may be based in a studio elsewhere. Please outline these in your application, making clear how you intend to collaborate with our Galway resident (i.e face-to-face meetings, split studio, social media or other form of correspondence.)


Please submit: a brief artists’ statement, CV and no more than 10 images of work in one Pdf file (no larger than 10MB) to contact@126gallery.com

Applications will be assessed under the following criteria:
-Quality of the application
-Suitability of the applicant
-Compatibility of applicant with the invited artist in question


The Successful applicant will receive a stipend of 250 Euros for participation in the residency. They will receive an exhibition fee of 200 Euro and be featured in a publication that accompanies the project.

This project is supported by the Arts Council Ireland Project Award.
