Temple Bar Gallery + Studios is delighted to announce that artist Kathy Tynan has been awarded a residency in Paris as part of the Cité Internationale des Arts programme.
More than 60 artists from around the world will be in residence in 2018 at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. The residency programme is open to foreign artists, who wish to develop a project of research in Paris during a period of three or six months. These artists may be identified by the Institut Français, Alliances Françaises, cultural services of the French Embassies or French and foreign cultural organisations.
Kathy will work from a studio in Paris for three months in 2018. During her residency, Kathy will spend time discerning the recurrent motifs and patterns of the City. She will focus particularly on interventional man-made marks which feel strange or out of place within the urban landscape.
