Cow House Studios is thrilled to announce Angela Jerardi, Charlotte Lagro, Martina O’Brien, and Rowan Lear as the recipients of their 2017 Autumn Residency. With the generous support of Wexford County Council & The National College of Art & Design, Cow House Studios presents Rising from the Hill: Local Systems in Global Contexts, a 6-week residency that will explore and develop methods of giving aesthetic forms to real-life, situations. This residency was conceived in the spirit of meaningful exchange between practice and theory and as an outcome of ongoing collaborative projects between residency curators, Francis Halsall and Kelley O’Brien investigating social relations through the lens of systems.
