Things Twice (multiple times) by David Lunney will preview on Thursday 13th Sept in our Rathmines Gallery. Using a variety of materials and media, Lunney explores pattern, point of view, landscape and repetition.
This exhibtion programme is made possible with the generous support of the Arts Council.
SMART Talks is a new series of professional development presentations and workshops, providing a platform for artists and the creative community to engage with a curated selection of creative agencies, councils, artistic supports, professional creative practices, and funding providers. There will also be a space for wider discussions of issues such as arts & mental health, wellbeing, diversity and accessibility in the arts.
By providing these talks in The MART Gallery, Dublin – alongside our gallery programme and studio network – we hope to foster an environment where creativity can flourish as a professional career, where new practices can establish themselves, and where artists and creatives have the space to engage critically with contemporary issues.

Livestock has teamed up with MART to present a year long residency in 2018.
Livestock was established in 2010 at The Market Studios in Dublin by Joan Healy, Louise Ward and Francis Fay. Livestock continues today with Francis Fay & Eleanor Lawler as co-curators.
Livestock is an artist-led initiative set up to support, encourage and promote performance, the artists and their work. The bi-monthly event is an opportunity for performers to show new or evolving work.
Central to their ethos is the creation of a positive and welcoming environment where artists can perform their live work to an appreciative audience. We believe performance facilitates a relationship between artist and audience, creating an intimacy and a space for dialogue between both parties.
Livestock has been part of Dublin Live Art Festival since 2012, exposing Irish performance artists’ work to International artists taking part in the Festival.
