Join us for the launch of our new exhibition Future/Forward: a long-term studio programme and series of three exhibitions featuring new collaborative works by QSS members.

Conceived as a response to the pandemic, the programme paired 35 artists together to create experimental work, and to re-galvanise the studio community following the disruption of the past two years. The focus for this series of exhibitions is on representing artists’ working methods, of process and exchange, and the significance of creative dialogue.

Participating artists have worked closely with curator Jane Morrow since August 2021, through a series of over 80 studio visits, discussions and presentations, culminating in three exhibitions – two in Belfast, and one in Dublin.

Curator talk, 2 June 2022, 6.30pm

Join Future/Forward curator Jane Morrow for an informal introduction to the first in this series of exhibitions, where she will share insights into the collaborative processes and curatorial rationale at the core of the programme.

QSS have been invited by MART as part of a broader initiative to share their gallery space with artist-run organisations, studio groups and independent curators based throughout the island of Ireland, introducing their work to new audiences and developing peer networks in Dublin.
