2/3 Argus House, Malpas Street, Blackpitts, Dublin 8


The six studios in MART's Malpas Street Gallery & Studios are based in a historic block on the edge of the Liberties, located close to NCAD, as well as a range of cafes (The Fumbally, Two Pups, Cathedral Cafe), bars (John Fallon’s, The Headline, Whelan’s, Against the Grain), and restaurants (Sova Vegan Butcher, Boojum, Konkan). This cosy former office space is now home to a range of artists and creative professionals working across a number of disciplines.

The Building

Situated on the upper floor of an office block, this building has windows on two sides for lots of light and great views of the Liberties skyline. A large shared kitchen and social space gives studio members the opportunity to get to know their neighbours.

Transport

The Malpas Street studio is situated on bus routes 49, 54a, or five minutes walk to 27, 56a, 77a, 150 and 151. Fifteen minutes walk from St Stephen’s Green Luas Stop.

The Gum Collective

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.  Our constant aim is to produce exciting and engaging art for both ourselves and the viewer. Striving to increase accessibility and engagement in the Visual Arts.  We are: Aaron Burns, Aaron Smyth, Alex de Roeck, Aimee Gallagher, Ciara O'Brien, Ciaran Gallen, Clare Marie Ryan, Luke O'Meara, Sadbh O'Brien, Sofya Mikhaylova and Stephen Lau.

Phaedra Vlahos

Phaedra is a painter and illustrator with work that loosely surrounds the fantastical, intimate and colourful. The distinguishing feature of her work is her bold, sharp colours and the engagement of emotion created through them. From people, to moongazing wolves and leaping foxes, the plane is open to all things living and moving. phaedrasart.com


Clowns Without Borders Ireland

Clowns Without Borders Ireland, a group of professional street and circus artists, brings smiles and laughter to children and their communities who are in crisis in Ireland and around the world. All of our teams donate their time and skills on a voluntary basis. No child without a smile.  www.cwbireland.com


Eleanor Lawler

The invisible woman likes to perform, to enhance images using ancient stitching techniques, to use and record her body doing strangely normal, not at all difficult, juxtapositioning. Structure, literal and metaphorical, is a constant source of interest, investigation and deconstruction. She also co-curates the now legendary live art platform, Livestock, currently resident at MART. eleanorlawlerartlover.blogspot.ie


Sean Clarke

Sean Clarke is a Dublin based director and cinematographer. He works mainly in documentary and film. seanclarkefilm.com.


Owen Costello

Owen Costello

Owen Costello is a Dublin based director, cinematographer and editor.
