MART MART is an arts organisation founded in 2007 by Matthew Nevin & Ciara Scanlan. With the help of a skilled team, our mission is to provide creative art studios and promote contemporary art through an engaging curatorial programme to local and international audiences.Our 18-month exhibition programme for 2018/2019 is now live. Click here to check out all our planned activities. Gallery & Curation Nevin & Scanlan have curated over 100 artists through previous exhibitions, events, festivals and art fairs across Ireland, UK, Europe, USA & Japan. In 2012 the pair embarked on a 16 month journey to transform the old Rathmines Fire Station, launching two galleries in 2013 as a new home for contemporary art in Ireland. MART primarily supports sculpture, video, new media, installation and performance, art making practices that break new ground, that test and stretch the material and immaterial, and challenge conventions of ‘the norm’. In 2016 we had our biggest reach to date, as we signed on eight Artists to be represented by The MART Gallery in a first for the organisation. MART’s programme of exhibitions is supported by The Irish Arts Council.
