Artist-in-residence 2021/2023 at the National Museum of Ireland

The National Museum of Ireland will work with Anthony Haughey on a collaborative and socially engaged residency from 2021 - 2023 where he will co-create work of depth and ambition with communities, taking inspiration from the NMI collections and the buildings they are housed in, as they relate to the Decade of Centenaries.


About the Artist

Anthony Haughey is a socially engaged artist, photographer, filmmaker, and educator. He collaborates widely with communities of interest to co-create artworks that share a common purpose; to challenge inequality and promote social transformation.

His co-authored and solo artworks have been exhibited and collected by museums and galleries nationally and internationally. His artist studio is situated in the National Museum of Ireland - Decorative Arts & History site in Collins Barracks. Anthony's artist studio is conceived of as a learning lab, where dynamic conversations, workshops, and durational processes result in the co-creation of artworks that reflect an exciting time of change in Ireland.

Anthony is particularly interested in how Ireland’s Decade of Centenaries raises important questions for how we understand and embrace emerging cultural identities. He is open to working with communities across the island. If you have an idea for a co-created project you can contact him to arrange a studio visit or an online conversation.  Studio visits are also welcome from Curators and media by appointment.
