art systems occupying derelict space in dublin city

Pallas studios and heights @ NE inner city / the monto

"In 1996 Artists Mark Cullen and Brian Duggan formed Pallas Studios in Dublin's inner city. This multi functional art space has a wide range of services and ongoing Projects. From Art studios to contemporary exhibitions Pallas was established to harness, engage and provoke."
5 years later the city council gave them a derelict flat which they have turned into an art gallery.
Last week some of the seomra spraoi collective visited the group, saw the spaces and interviewed them
14 minute radio interview with Brian Duggan

Pallas studios and heights - map
Pallas studios and heights - map

Pallas studios, their studio is the last building remaining on Foley street which has not undergone development. The studio has been here for the last 10 years and is rented. The name comes from the factory that the artists work out of, named after greek godess Pallas Athene, the godess of the arts and war.
this is the (in)famous monto part of dublin city, once the largest red light district in dublin.
10 years ago the artists; Mark Cullen and Brian Duggan approached the city council with a radical idea - give us space in derelict city zones to use as live art spaces- 5 years later and after much work to encourage the decision- the council gave them a derelict flat in Sean Treacey house on Buckingham street, just off Summerhill. It is primarly a modern art space in a unigue and different setting.
we interviewed Brian about the project in his studio and visited the present exhibition - no mans land, up in the heights

why?
because it was felt art and culture can help alleviate the problems of the area, part of the city which suffered severly from the heroin crisis of the 80's, which is not over yet.

perhaps being inspired by the precedent set by dublin council and Pallas, last year in kilkenny the arts officer, Mary Butler, gave 14 artists in kilkenny the FREE use of the derelict chadwicks building beside the train station. This was used as a live studio, kids visited and met the artists and the artists had it for @ a year till it was pulled down
more on that

unfortunately the Pallas exhibition is now over, but there will be more, and hopefully there will be more and more and more spaces like this throughout the city

No Mans Land
http://www.pallasstudios.org/pallas/exhibitions/pallasheights/nomansland.htm

Daniel Cramer, Haris Epaminonda, Angela Huntbach, Tea Makipäa, Karen Land Hansen, Yvonne McGuinness, Ann Mulrooney and Christian Sievers. were the artists who exhibited in the gallery.
Curated by Ann Mulrooney.

"No Mans Land is an ongoing exhibition project which began in 2002, involving eight young European artists. Although working in a variety of media including performance, sound, photography and drawing, all in some way are operating from a sense of displacement and an ambiguity relating to how the self fits in the world.
Also notable is the direct authenticity of the work. It touches on recurrent themes that evoke or explore beauty, alienation and a sense of lack or longing, revealing a world which is subtly foreign to us though seemingly familiar. The exhibition is sited within a domestic environment in a deliberate blurring of boundaries which underlines the subtle complexities of the subjects touched upon."

Magpie Squat Still Empty!
http://www.indymedia.ie/newswire.php?story_id=72091&condense_comments=false#comment122081
In August 2003 some anarchists, autonomists and punx fed up paying extortionate rents to greedy landlords (and working shitty precarious jobs to keep him fat) decided enough was enough and occupied a long derelict building on Leeson street.

cork art group "one day collective" occupy derelict city building
http://flag.blackened.net/revolt/wsm/ws/2005/85/corkculture.html
A group of artists in Cork, aware of the lack of affordable work space, took over an empty building in the centre of Cork at the beginning of February. It wasn't just any old building, it was the former home of the Cork School of Music and which has lain empty for nearly 15 years. The building was perfect: loads of space and close to the centre of town. Not to mention the fifteen grand pianos that were found in there that were rotting away from lack of use!

anyway, fair play to pallas and all involved with what they have done over these few years, looking forward to more adventures from them
