Hyde Park Art Center and Sweet Water Foundation announce residency exchange program with Irish Museum of Modern Art and Create, connecting Chicago and Dublin through art and activism

Create with IMMA (the Irish Museum of Modern Art) in partnership with Hyde Park Art Center, and Sweet Water Foundation, Chicago are delighted to announce Seoidín O’Sullivan as the inaugural artist recipient of our Residency Exchange. This unique residency is designed to illuminate opportunities for, and links between, Irish and American socially-engaged artists and arts organizations as we partner with these institutions located in Dublin, Ireland.

This new collaboration is built on the legacy of Sweet Water Foundation’s participation in IMMA’s “A Fair Land” project in 2016 as well as, Create and Hyde Park Art Center’s partnership on the 2016-2017 exhibition “(Re)Public.” Working together for the first time on a joint cultural initiative, these four organizations are producing an immersive residency experience in Chicago and Dublin for incoming artists. Chicago is a city recognized worldwide as a vibrant hub for socially-engaged art practices, which are in direct conversation with cultural production in Dublin, a city with an extensive history of activism and social justice movements. < /p>

This is Not My Beautiful House II 

A seminar to be held in Dun Laoghaire at the end of May will bring together a wide range of national and international experts from the disciplines of architecture, culture, gerontology and social sciences to explore the role and impact of living spaces and places as we get older.

Date: 30 May 

Time: 9:30 – 17:30

Venue: The Studio, Lexicon, Dun Laoghaire

This is Not My Beautiful House II is a seminar as part of Age & Opportunity's Bealtaine Festival 2017. As we get older, the spaces and places we inhabit need to be more connected, accessible, and secure, without compromising on beauty. This is Not My Beautiful House II, which is developed in partnership with Create, the National Development Agency for collaborative arts and the Irish Architecture Foundation, is the second in a series of Bealtaine seminars exploring key issues impacting on our social, economic and cultural rights to adequate housing, public space and cultural and creative lives as we get older.
