Artist Niamh O’Malley will represent Ireland at the next Venice Biennale in 2022
Artist Niamh O’Malley will represent Ireland at the next Venice Art Biennale in 2022, with an exhibition project titled “Gather”, presented by the Curatorial Team Temple Bar Gallery + Studios. The exhibition in the Irish pavilion will continue O’Malley’s research initiated in her workspace at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios (TBG+S), Dublin, where she works with stone, steel, wood and glass.
The project will be enriched by a series of contributions during the period of presentation and travelling to Venice, including a series of conversation between O’Malley and other artists and a documentary film presenting a portrait of her. Concurrently with the opening of the Biennale, TBG+S will release an artist’s book, complementary to the pavilion’s exhibition. Ireland at Venice 2022 will continue as a National Tour curated as a multi-venue exhibition and public engagement programme during 2023.
