Catalyst Arts / The Joinery

Exchange Program

The Joinery

22nd – 31st March

In collaboration with The Joinery, Catalyst Arts presents a selection of work by recent graduates chosen from the University of Ulster Degree Show 2011 (Belfast), highlighting the variety of output by local emerging practitioners. Graduates chosen are Amy BrooksStuart Calvin and Ruaidhri Lennon.
This work will be re-exhibited in the Joinery, and provides the selected artists with an opportunity to show alongside their peers in a new, curated context.
Afterwards, the recent graduate works selected by The Joinery will be exhibited in Catalyst Arts. Through this exchange both galleries hope that the work made by artists from both cities will reach new, and broader, audiences.

Catalyst Arts was founded to support and exhibit the work of students, local, emerging and more established artists, often exhibiting them alongside international names. The organization provides a training ground for future artistic, curatorial and arts administrative talent, and is committed to providing services and opportunities for its large members’ base. As a result, the gallery continues to present cutting edge and challenging contemporary art on a modest budget, showcased in an accessible and dynamic art space in the heart of Belfast. Over the years, Catalyst has worked and collaborated with a diverse range of organisations, groups and institutions in Northern Ireland, the Republic and abroad.

The gallery is run by a board of voluntary directors, each serving for a maximum of two years, and has implemented this model since its constitution. The gallery programme is co-ordinated by the committee and consists of both budgeted and unfunded projects, including an annual student and members show. Catalysts members pay an annual fee and in return can borrow equipment, contribute to the Annual general meeting, enter calls for open submissions and exhibit in the annual members show programmed by the gallery.
