This year, through a series of small scale collaborations with artists, collectives and organisations Catalyst Arts will pilot a new auxiliary offsite programme titled ‘Garrincha’ which will further promote the commissioning of new works of artistic merit by emerging artists with a non gallery centred practice, for temporal and event based works.
The first of these collaborations has been through the invitation of 126 in Galway, for which Catalyst Arts has selected artists working across a range of disciplines, encompassing a two person exhibition at 126 Gallery space by Martin Boyle and Liliane Puthod, whose work excavates or activates commonplace aspects of the civic and urban landscape which have been ignored or overlooked in recent times as the sites for new interventions and dialogues.
