We are so *so* thrilled to share this exciting news with you. The Kunstverein network is expanding! The new addition will emerge in 2022 in rural Ireland and will be led by the talented Kate Strain, who left her position as director of Grazer Kunstverein to begin this journey with us. In tune with the foundational values of our own Kunstverein, this sister institute will actively counter the more traditional model of a kunstverein in both location, mise-en-scene and opening hours.
Spanning the ground floor of a family home, Kunstverein Aughrim will take on the role of an art commissioning and production agency working on up to a maximum of four major productions each year. Kunstverein Aughrim will support, mentor, promote and represent artists from the budding stage of an idea all the way through to the presentation phase. Lucky them and lucky us!
