This was followed by ‘Buttered Up’ by Áine Phillips, which was forced to close after less than a week due to the COVID-19 lockdown. This had a knock on effect of causing us to reschedule our programme of exhibitions for the year.
We are delighted to say we are reopening our Gallery with the return of ‘Buttered Up’ by Áine Phillips on Wednesday, 8 July.
This exhibition will kick off a newly amended programme of exhibitions running in MART between July and September, in line with Government recommendations for public spaces.
The latest iteration of our annual Studio Members Group exhibition will follow Buttered Up at the end of July, and after that a new solo exhibition from Andrew Carson opens in August.
MART’s 2020 programme is made possible with the generous support of the Arts Council Ireland and Dublin City Council.
Keep an eye on our website and newsletter for further updates throughout the year.

A Rhythm Exposed (Routines: 5–6) represents the artist’s travel and conversations, combined with a curiosity into Buddhist doctrine concerning the three marks of existence. Focusing on the characteristics of Anicca, Dukkha and Anatta – Paliwords for impermanence, anxiety or suffering and non-self. They are used here as a reference to questions of interest, concern and ritual. The three characteristics are common to all forms of existence.
This exhibition is part of the artist’s ongoing Routines series. In this series, which began in 2016, drawing is used as a key conceptual tool for the artist to examine obsessions in archiving, ownership and preservation and invites contemplation of the meticulous use of ink, light, and time on the aesthetic of the artworks. It is a continuous process of assembling and making, informed by reactions to the artist’s personal encounters.
