Jennie Guy is an artist, curator and educator based in Dublin. Her artistic practice embraces visual, textual, performance, and event-based output. She is interested in the rituals surrounding artistic production, seeking alternate modes of observation and response. She is the founder and director of Art School, a platform that establishes new interfaces between contemporary art and sites of education. She develops workshop and residency programmes that unite artists, students, and educators in substantial research exchanges and partnerships, both nationally and internationally. Her projects generate collaborative art-works, exhibitions, screenings and publications, while remaining primarily invested in exploring artistic process and decisive interventions within educational curricula.
She is currently Manager of Programme and Operations in Fire Station Artists’ Studios and a member of The Enquiry, Graduate School of Creative Arts and Media (GradCAM) which is hosted by IMMA.
Through her independent practice Guy is project managing and curating five major public art commissions across County Wicklow and County Dublin in 2017 and 2018. Her most recent exhibition includes It’s Very New School, a group exhibition at Rua Red Art Centre.
She holds a Masters in Visual Arts Practices, IADT, Dunlaoghaire, Dublin and a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature & History, Trinity College Dublin.
