Irish Museum of Modern Art Announces Residency Award Recipients

The Irish Museum of Modern Art, or IMMA, has announced that Jenny Brady, Neil Carroll, Dragana Jurisic, and the artist duo Walker and Walker have been selected to participate in the IMMA 1000 Residency Program, paid for by IMMA 1000, “a fund specifically created to support IMMA’s work with Irish artists in the drastically altered social and economic environment we find ourselves in since 2008, one which has made it increasingly challenging for artists to continue living and working in Ireland,” said the museum in a press release.

Walker and Walker, who corepresented Ireland at the 2005 Venice Biennale, will receive studio space for a year at the museum, in addition to a cash award of about $14,000. Brady, Carroll, and Jurisic will be given six-month residencies at IMMA, and each of the three artists will receive cash prizes of more than $7,000.

“This is a very commendable initiative at IMMA,” said Walker and Walker. “Its key benefit to our practice is that it provides a significant opportunity for us to spend time together in one shared studio space. This will be extremely beneficial, as we have been working together since 1989 but have not had a shared space in over ten years. We are looking forward to a productive period together!”
