The Digital Hub welcomes Artist-in-Residence to Dublin 8 campus

Experienced photographer Kate Nolan has taken up residency in the enterprise cluster for an eight-month period as part of the initiative run by The Digital Hub.

 

The 2019/20 residency programme commenced in July and will continue until March 2020 when it will conclude with an exhibition of Kate’s work. Kate is being provided with desk space in The Digital Hub for the duration of her residency.

 

Speaking about the Artist-in-Residence initiative, Fiach Mac Conghail, CEO of The Digital Hub said: “As a part of our mission of creating a diverse and creative technology quarter in Dublin 8, it is important to us that we include artists amongst our community. Our residency programme for visual artists allows us to engage in a more sustained and creative way with this mission. We are delighted to welcome Kate to The Digital Hub. Kate will bring her unique perspective as an artist to life at The Digital Hub and we look forward to supporting her work with us.”

Commenting on her appointment, Kate Nolan said: “I am thrilled to have been chosen as The Digital Hub’s Artist-in-Residence, and to be working in an area with such a rich and diverse history. In my work I collaborate with communities in spaces of transition or “in-between” places, to visualise and inquire into the construction of identity. This residency will give me the scope to push and test new ideas within my practice. My work has brought me to border spaces across Europe and the Americas, and I am now fortunate to get to work with the vibrant community in the Liberties that has been my home for the past eight years.”

Kate Nolan’s appointment as Artist-in-Residence follows on from award winning artist and photographer, Mandy O’Neill’s residency at The Digital Hub in 2018.  It also follows the recent announcement of the creation of a Technologist-in-Residence programme at The Digital Hub. Rodhán Hickey, a respected digital innovator, took up residency in the enterprise cluster earlier this summer. He plans to share his passion for new and emerging technologies with The Digital Hub client companies and local residents of Dublin 8 through community learning programmes.
