Artists in Residence
Art and Science Programme 2017
The CÚRAM Art and Science programme together with Galway City Council launches its new project in Westside, Galway. The chosen artists Cleary Connolly will be in attendance in Westside Library. You are invited to come and meet the artists and find out how you can get involved in the project.
The CÚRAM Art and Science programme aims to create links with the artistic community and support the art-science discipline while increasing interest in science and current research. Since 2015, CÚRAM has hosted artist residencies in the laboratories and also in artist studio spaces situated near the beautiful Aula Maxima.
CÚRAM, the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Research in Medical Devices based at NUI Galway together with Galway City Arts Office have commissioned a new Community Art-Science project for Westside community in Galway City.
Award winning artists Anne Cleary and Denis Connolly, who live and work between Paris and Ireland, have been selected to develop an art-science project with the Westside community using the research being carried out at CÚRAM as their inspiration. Their highly engaging artworks focus on vision, perception of space and the relationship with the public. They design interactive environments that often integrate new technologies and with this project, aim to create a permanent artwork which acknowledges the various communities of Westside and celebrates their connection to CÚRAM and the MedTech Industry.
