6. The Arts Council announces the recipient of the Location One Fellowship 2010

Location One is a not-for-profit art centre in New York devoted to convergence between visual, performing and digital arts. It operates an international residency programme where emerging and established artists can experiment with new forms of artistic expression.

The Arts Council offers an annual fellowship to one artist to facilitate his/her participation in the international residency programme at Location One for 10 months, in order to develop his/her practice and create new work. In addition to the studio space, support and resources provided through Location One, the fellowship includes accommodation and a monthly stipend. The overall value of the award is in the region of €40,000.

The recipient of this year’s award is the artist John O'Connell.  John holds an MA from the Royal College of Art, London and a BA from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin.  He has exhibited extensively in Europe, Ireland and in the USA employing a variety of working methods from drawing to sculpture and film.

John O'Connell's recent projects include: The Visitor, Riverbank Art Centre, Newbridge (2010); Material Worlds-Contemporary sculpture from Ireland and the UK, F.E. McWilliam Gallery, Northern Ireland (2010); Clear Skies Above, SIM House, Reykjavík, (2010); Nothing Matters When Your Dancing, Stiftung Starke, Berlin (2009); Futures 09, Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin (2009); Big Pink,  Goethe Institute, Dublin (2009); and The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, Berlin (2009).
