Pallas Projects/Studios are delighted to announce the participating artists in our programme of Artist-Initiated Projects 2023. The series of 8 x 3-week exhibitions from March-November 2022 will present exhibitions of new work by: Daniel Tuomey, Venus Patel, Bog Cottage, Tanad Aaron, The Freebirds M.C.C. Project with Brigid Mulligan, Banbha McCann, INTER_SITE, Aoibheann Greenan.

Artist-Initiated Projects at Pallas Projects/Studios is an open-submission, annual gallery programme of 8 x 3-week exhibitions taking place from March-November 2023. This unique programme of funded, artist-initiated projects selected via open call is highly accessible to artists, with a focus on early career, emerging artists and recent graduates. Projects are supplemented with artists' talks, texts, workshops or performances, and gallery visits by colleges and local schools.

Artist-Initiated Projects aims to act as an incubator for early careers, and support artists' practices at crucial stages, providing a platform for artists to produce and exhibit challenging work across all art forms. The model of short-run exhibitions with a relatively short turnaround time of 3–6 months is an alternative to the normal institutional model, where the process of studio visit to exhibition can take several years. Shorter lead-in times allow the programme to be quick and responsive, reflect what artists are currently making, and encourage experimentation and risk-taking.

Pallas Projects/Studios Artist-Initiated Projects is funded by The Arts Council
