Residency ProgrammeDean Arts Studio Residency

IMMA's residency provides opportunities for national and international artists, curators, critical writers and art professionals to research and develop their practices onsite at the Museum.

Dean Arts Studio Residency

The Dean Arts Studio is a new, multi-disciplinary hub located on Chatham Row in the heart of Dublin city centre. It is a practical response to the contraction of accessible, affordable city workspaces for artists of all disciplines, due in part to the loss of cultural spaces through development.

Both established and emerging practitioners across visual arts, literature, photography, sound, music and more will begin to take up residency this year. The Studio will be fully funded by The Dean Dublin and Press Up Hospitality Group, and the fourteen studios and office spaces will be gifted to artists, cultural institutions and arts organisations.

IMMA is delighted to be joining this dynamic and exciting creative collective as lead cultural institution partner. IMMA and The Dean Dublin are partnering through IMMA’s Artists’ Residency Programme by programming four artistic practices through the provision of studio spaces at the Dean Arts Studio.The gift of four studios from the Dean to IMMA has enabled IMMA to extend its Residency Programme by awarding year-long residencies at the Dean Arts Studio to Elayne Harrington, Brian Teeling and Salvatore of Lucan.

Annie Fletcher, Director, IMMA

“Supporting artists in the provision of space for research and making as well as display has always been central to IMMA’s mission. IMMA and the Dean have forged a strong partnership over the past five years and it fantastic to be able to develop this collaboration further.”
