GUM is a collective of Dublin based visual artists, established in 2013. Originating from printmaking, our members and skill set have evolved beyond print into sculpture, assemblage, video, performance, animation and paint, whilst maintaining the community ethos and sensibilities associated with printmaking. We have created an environment of analytical discussion and open debate about visual art. Through the sharing of ideas, methodologies and materials our work has diversified and developed, while maintaining distinctive qualities individual to each member.
