Taproot + MART Gallery are proud to present ‘Artonomy’ – an exhibition and art auction to raise funds for the Together for Yes Campaign.

The exhibition launches with an opening reception and auction on Thursday 5 April at 6pm, and runs until Friday 13 April. In selecting the work for Artonomy,  Deirdre Morrissey {MART} and Sophie Murphy {Taproot Art} curated work from invited artists and current MART Studio members who believe that the 8th Amendment needs to be removed from the Irish Constitution.

Being self determining means having the free choice over one’s own acts, and we at MART believe that the 8th Amendment is currently denying Irish women the freedom to make choices and have autonomous control over their bodies.

MART Directors Ciara Scanlan & Matthew Nevin feel strongly in supporting the repeal of the 8th campaign and have helped produce this fundraising exhibition. MART firmly believes in the self-determining artist and art organisation as vital societal and cultural catalyst.

This exhibition is both a showcase of the varied and diverse practices of  determined creatives and an act of solidarity with Together For Yes and the Repeal the 8th campaign.

50% of all artwork sold will go to the Together for Yes Campaign and 50% will go to the artist.

There will be an auction of work on the opening night (Thursday 5 April) from 6pm -9pm, with music by Eve and Frank Sweeney.

In addition to the work being auctioned, Taproot will present MASK – a series of of images and installations produced by Sophie Murphy in association with drawing session conductor Doug Ross, and the artists Paul Leech, Aaron Lennon Ross, Sarah Lennon Ross, Amy Ní Mhurchú, Andrej Kapor, Rebecca Curling, Jago Moulton, Ellen Forkin, Niamh Hannaford and Bertrand Desrochers.

Activating Pangea: The Voyage




‘Activating Pangea: The Voyage’

Nov 5th – Dec 4th 2016

CB1 Gallery Los Angeles 

Dublin based curators Matthew Nevin & Ciara Scanlan of MART have embarked on a 3 year initiative to bring leading and emerging contemporary Irish art to Los Angeles through their series ‘Activating Pangea’.

This the second exhibition in the series titled ‘Activating Pangea: The Voyage’  showcases recent work by Irish Artists Brian Duggan and Adam Gibney. It reflects on geopolitics over time and space, as we transverse language and negotiate real and imagined places in a global context. The artworks crossing in the gallery are Adam Gibney’s ‘Euclid, I miss you…’ and Brian Duggan’s ‘A Cause for concern but not alarm’.

Gibney’s work targets the quest for certainty. He states, “Man has created an abstract language in Mathematics to convey underlying governing principles of our reality, and in so doing a platonic world is created. This world can often become difficult or impossible to  convey  in  everyday  language;  it  is  in  these  places  that  our  imagination  and perception are tested.” In this exhibition the points of which Gibney’s work targets reality, linguistics and technologies intermingle with the symbolic annotations of the everyday.

Duggan’s work is informed by the way in which we live now. Duggan’s work questions the aspirations and assumptions that are interlinked within the scientific and social framework of energy consumption and legacy planning. The systems in place are always evolving, attempting to catch up to an elusive plateau that is inherently unstable. Through the work presented here Duggan “plunges the viewer into a realm where seemingly casual navigation of space bespeaks chilling (hi)stories”

‘The Voyage’ allows the visitor to refocus their own experiences and memories through the interpretation and assimilation of language and analyse their own exploitative journeys through space and time. Focusing on the quest for answers of our own existence and our place within an imagined world without borders, without physical and cultural barriers, the exhibition suggests new ways of being and thinking, while investigating the conditions of concerning events and symbolics of reality.
