On Saturday 25 February Art Nomads open their studio doors to host Voices In Many Places, a collective conversation on various approaches to public engagement with contemporary art encouraging studio discussions on current thinking and practices that seek to engage wider audiences. Bringing together the Art Nomads collective, IMMA’s Residency programming, the EU SPICE Project and invited Brussel’s based curator Zsolt Kozma with his project Art of Care, this engaging event will explore ‘people’s curation’ and democratic participation through practical examples that delve into the meaning of being a contemporary artist and/or curator.

In tandem to their predominantly studio based residency IMMA supported Art Nomads with scheduled opportunities to stay onsite offering accommodation space and time for the collective. During their residency Art Nomads have engaged with the SPICE Project, an EU wide museum research process looking at citizen curation and inclusion.
Also during this timeframe Art Nomads exhibited their artwork Karvansarai in Brussels in 2022. Here Zsolt’s Art of Care project in Anderlecht and Molenbeek in Brussels came to their attention, taking art out into community spaces in migrant and disenfranchised neigbourhoods. This is when Art Nomads saw similarities between Art of Care and SPICE Project which invites minoritised communities into the institution to share their perspectives on and through IMMA’s collection. Art Nomads regularly engages with transcultural exchange with its work with curators and communities outside of Ireland, aiming to build a transcultural storytelling practice.
Art Nomads is a collective of culturally diverse artists living and practicing in Ireland. With very different experiences and heritages as well as art and design specialisms, they each have their own individual practice across a range of media from urban design to miniature painting, video installation, poetry and sculpture. As well as staging exhibitions, events, workshops and engaging in research and experimental projects, Art Nomads aims to work as a capacity builder and advocate for artists from diverse and minority ethnic backgrounds in Ireland.
Members currently include: Muhammad Achour, Antonio D’Souza, Hina Khan, Tomasz Madajczak, Roxana Manouchehri, Joe Odiboh, Laragh Pittman, Rajinder Singh and Amna Walayat.
