ACW Students Stephen Lau and Sadbh O’Brien as part of GUM Collective along with Aaron Smyth, Alex de Roeck, Aimee Gallagher, Ciara O’Brien Ciaran Gallen and Sofya Mikhaylova are undertaking a residency at the National Gallery from 1 – 30 April 2018.
“As part of the education and public programme for Emil Nodle: Colour is Life, GUM, a young artist collective, have been invited to engage with, and respond to the exhibition originally printmaking students fro the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, the members of GUM have evolved beyond print to embrace other art forms including sculpture, assemblage, video, performance, animation and paint. However, the community ethos and core sensibilities associated with printmaking continue to inform their practice.
For the month of April 2018, GUM will be based here in the Millennium Wing Studio at the National Gallery of Ireland. Working as artist in residence they will investigate the life and work of Emil Nolde, both through their individual art practices and via an evolving programme of education and public engagement activities. Detalis of these activities will be posted in advance outside the Millennium Wing Studio and on the Gallery’s social media accounts. The residency will culminate in a display of work produces by the collective. Open May|3|10|17|24|31. ”
