Basic Space are delighted to announce Bassam Al-Sabah and Kim Gleeson as the new Co-Directors of Basic Space. Bassam Al-Sabah and Kim Gleeson are recent IADT graduates of Visual Arts Practice, based in Dublin. Bassam was awarded the RHA graduate studio award and works in video, sculpture and installation and Kim’s work is concerned with materiality, architecture and the fragility of structure.
Bassam and Kim envision Basic Space as a series of architectures that supports and facilitates contemporary art practitioners primarily through exhibition-making. Alongside exhibition making, Bassam and Kim are interested in the dissemination of information through residencies and educational events. The new Co-Directors are particularly invested in creating opportunities for emerging practitioners.
Bassam and Kim will jointly lead Basic Space with Daniel Bermingham.
