Jennie Guy is an artist, curator and educator based in Dublin. Her practice embraces visual, textual, performance, and event-based output. Guy’s work interrogates the rituals surrounding artistic production, seeking alternate modes of observation and response. She is the founder and director of Art School, a platform that establishes new interfaces between contemporary art and sites of education. Through Art School, she develops workshop and residency programmes that unite artists, students, and educators in partnership and research exchanges, both nationally and internationally. These projects generate collaborative art-works, exhibitions, screenings and publications, while remaining primarily invested in exploring artistic process and decisive interventions within educational curricula. Building on the momentum developed through Art School, Guy curated the EVA 2018 schools programme and has recently been awarded Arts Council funding to produce a book that includes a series of essays written by leading Irish and international writers . In 2016 Guy launched Artists’ Exercises with Stine Marie Jacobsen, providing an online platform for distributing fragments of artists’ educational strategies featuring contributions from over fifty international artists. Guy is Manager of Programme and Operation of Fire Station Artists’ Studios in Dublin and is currently curating a series of major public art commissions in Dublin and Wicklow. As curator in residence with Rua Red Arts Centre she curated the exhibitions Field Recording (2018) and It’s Very New School (2017). She has been a member of The Enquiry Reading Group, The Graduate School of Creative Arts and Media (GradCAM) since 2009.
