MART: THE INSTRUCTIONAL
“Manufactured objects raised to the dignity of works of art through the choice of the artist.” Breton “The Instructional’ MART’s new traveling show has been devised around the ‘Readymade’ approach to art making. We invited artists to submit proposals of work that work uses materials, object’s and concepts influenced by the readymade and re-constructible. Curated by Matthew Nevin & Ciara Scanlan, ‘The Instructional’ aim’s to re-invent the exhibition format with a unique interplay between artist, curator and artwork, challenging each role. Mart has collated a dynamic collection of Video, Installation, Sound & Performance Visual Art work from contemporary Irish, British, European & North American Artists for ‘The Instructional’ Tour. MART now has developed an extensive network of connections with contemporary visual art spaces globally and is bringing this inventive travelling show of Artists, all of whom have achieved individual success, to galleries across Europe and North America. MART’s primary aim is to provide opportunities for New Media Artists and to showcase their work within Ireland, UK and internationally. Through this touring exhibition we hope to attract interest from curators to open up prospects for our Artists.
