Pushing the boundaries of painting and object, of art and fashion, Eric N. Mack uses fabric, worn clothes, dye, blankets, paint, bleach, magazine cut-outs and photographs to create three-dimensional tactile assemblages in which colour, form, texture and line become both intimate and culturally significant.
Eric N. Mack’s work has been shown extensively internationally and has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions and major group exhibitions. Mack was awarded the Philip Guston Rome Prize in 2021. He was the recipient of the inaugural BALTIC Artists’ Award (2017) and completed artist residencies at the Rauschenberg Residency, Captiva Island, FL and Delfina Foundation, London, UK. He has collaborated with designers Kiko Kostadinov and Grace Wales Bonner along with stylist Haley Wollens and lives and works in New York.
Production Residencies support selected national programming through the provision of essential space and time leading up to major exhibitions or research projects with organisations and programmes external to IMMA’s programming. This strand of programming offers affordable supports in light of the expense of hosting creative practices for any significant periods of time in Ireland and helps to broaden the network, diversity, connectivity and neighbourhood of IMMA’s Residency.
