Moxie Studios, established in 2005 as an arts resource organisation, it has been the largest not-for-profit, artist-run studio complex in Ireland for the past four years, despite being almost entirely self-funded. Moxie provides workspace, materials, technical assistance, training and consultation, exhibition and performance opportunities to visual and audio artists and groups.
The current premise in D2 houses over sixty studios that provide workspace and a collaborative atmosphere for contemporary and traditional artists working in almost every imaginable medium. The four gallery rooms, stage and separate cinema room for video art also provide the largest independent exhibition space for emerging artists, and has hosted 3rd-year exhibitions for both IADT and NCAD, as well as multiple exhibitions for the Irish Museum of Contemporary Art [IMOCA] and other private solo and group shows.
Services for member artists include two kitchens and lounges, a very large Project space and 1,000+ square-meter courtyard [which sees the occasional BBQ], lifedrawing classes, offsite pop-up show opportunities, skill workshops and yearly group exhibitions.
Moxie Studios also proudly provides space for various RDS student residency awards and the annual IMOCA Graduate Residency Award.
