MART is an artist initiative set up in 2006 by Matthew Nevin and Ciara Scanlan. MART’s primary aim is to create a platform for new media, installation, sculpture, experimental film and performance artists. MART was founded on an inclusive ethos, which aims to break down boundaries in the visual arts through its ability to inspire a curiosity for knowledge and education through art. MART aims to bring contemporary art to the forefront of culture by actively engaging people from all sectors of society in both its viewing and production.
MART’s website has grown into Ireland’s largest video art library and collection of active Irish visual artists showcasing contemporary art. The online interactive gallery hosts visual art on display and informative educational text, as a way of enriching an understanding of experimental and challenging artwork. This growing site showcases over 150 of the finest emerging and established artists, making their artwork publicly accessible. MART aims to provide an art resource that is accessible, interesting and enjoyable to the public.
MART holds no exclusivity in targeting its audience, as it aims to showcase to local and international audiences, artists, curators, art collectors, art organisations, not for profit organisations, voluntary art groups and art enthusiasts. To accomplish this, MART actively encourages public participation through workshops, talks and discussions around exhibitions and artist led events held in both contemporary galleries and within accessible temporary locations.
MART also acts as a platform and support group for individual artists and curators seeking advice and assistance on hosting their own exhibition in relation to promotion, location etc. MART specialises in international exhibitions of Irish artists and has supported the work of over 300 artists through its previous exhibitions and events. MART has reached an audience of over 30,000 in exhibitions across Ireland, the U.K, Central Eastern Europe and North America. Through an extensive international press portfolio MART has reached over 1 million people.
During 2012 MART has launched its first permanent gallery and studios ‘THE MART’, in an old fire station in Dublin serving local, national and international art endeavours. THE MART is home to artist studios, two galleries, a workshop space and ‘MIAEN’ (MART’S International Arts Exchange Network), a programme that offers an opportunity for international artists/curators to exhibit and curate in Dublin.

Fitzwilliam Square Distance: 0.6 miTourist Information 20 Fitzwilliam Street Upper Dublin, Ireland Dublin 2
Fitzwilliam Square is a Georgian garden square in the south of central Dublin, Ireland. It was the last of the five Georgian squares in Dublin to be built, and is the smallest.The square was developed by Richard FitzWilliam, 7th Viscount FitzWilliam, hence the name. It was designed from 1789 and laid out in 1792. The center of the square was enclosed in 1813 through an Act of the Parliament of Ireland. To the north is the much larger Merrion Square, with which Richard FitzWilliam was also involved. The square was a popular place for the Irish Social Season of aristocrats entertaining in Dublin between January and Saint Patrick's Day each year.Shootings took place in the square during Bloody Sunday of 1920. Sir Thomas O'Shaughnessy (1850–1933), the last Recorder of Dublin, lived in Fitzwilliam Square and died there on 7 March 1933.The N11 road passes through the northwest side of the square on its way into central Dublin.In March 2011, the entire space at 14 Fitzwilliam Square was let on a flexible seven-year lease to gold bullion brokers GoldCore.
