Kunstverein Aughrim is a curatorial production office for contemporary art projects.
Throughout Spring/Summer 2023 Kunstverein Aughrim presents Deirdre O’Mahony’s EAT FOOD POLICY, a gathering of work that includes over 200 publications on farming, food production, soil health and sustainability in Ireland; a single image from a 2018 photographic series documenting the rise and fall of JJ Silke’s seed potato industry; and a feeding trough hosting costumes, props and tableware from a series of generative feasts. The exhibition is open Thursday to Sunday by appointment.
Currently underway at Kunstverein Aughrim is a participatory community project entitled Suppose a Stone. This all-ages, interspecies accessibility audit is a collaboration between Kunstverein Aughrim, Aughrim Tidy Towns, Aughrim Active Retirement Group and architect Jenny O’Leary of HOWFF Architects. The initiative is supported by Hometown Architect, as part of the Irish Architecture Foundation’s nationwide Reimagine placemaking programme.
Across 2023 Kunstverein Aughrim continues to work with artists Áine Mac Giolla Bhríde, Deirdre O’Mahony and Sonia Shiel, to support the distinct methodologies that underpin their artistic processes, in the development of major new bodies of work. Excerpts of each of their practices will be presented seasonally in the form of Preview Events at Kunstverein Aughrim, providing intimate glimpses and insights into the new projects they are developing and realising in Donegal, Berlin, Dublin, Paris, Carlow, New York, Aughrim and beyond.
