Pallas Projects/Studios first opened its doors on Dublin’s Foley Street in May 1996 and to coincide with our 20th anniversary is a new publication Artist-Run Europe – a major survey and analysis of artist-run practice in cooperation with spaces from all over Ireland and Europe. The groundbreaking study is based on over 4 years of research, it features illustrated case studies looking at different organisational models of spaces, newly commissioned essays, and a detailed index of over 500 European artist-run spaces. The book is thoughtfully designed by Dublin studio WorkGroup and printed and bound to a very high standard in The Netherlands.

Pallas Projects/Studios is an artist-run non-profit organisation providing space for artistic production and exhibition in as many as eight semi-permanent locations since 1996. From Pallas Heights – a four-year exhibition programme in a semi-derelict block of council flats – to our current studios & project space in a former school in The Coombe area of Dublin, we have been dedicated to supporting and developing Irish contemporary art through solo projects by Irish artists (often at key stages of their careers) such as Sarah Browne & Gareth Kennedy, Brendan Earley, Clodagh Emoe, Niamh McCann, Jesse Jones, Cliona Harmey, Niall de Buitléar, Jim Ricks, Garrett Phelan, and international artists including Nathaniel Mellors, John Smith, Stephanie Syjuco, Hito Steyerl, and Mark Titchner, alongside critically engaged group exhibitions, artist-initiated projects, research and publication projects, and collaborations.

We have successfully secured part-funding from The Arts Council, CONNECT, and Limerick City Gallery of Art, however additional support is required to ensure that all production costs are covered for this ambitious project. PP/S receives no annual revenue or programming funding and has covered the project research and admin from its own sources and time given in-kind to the project. Costs for this project includes commissioning of 3 major essays, a number of shorter texts, copy editing and promotion, with the bulk being in the areas of production: design, printing, binding and shipping.

To ensure that the book informs views and understanding of artist-run practice to the wider field of contemporary art and beyond, it is being published by respected art-book publisher Onomatopee, with worldwide distribution in bookshops and international art book fairs.

By funding Artist-Run Europe you can get your hands on a pre-ordered copy plus lots of additional rewards and benefits! Any additional proceeds over our target will provide much-needed support for the PP/S 20th anniversary gallery programme.
