The winners of the 2017 RDS Visual Art Awards were announced on 24 October at the opening of the Visual Art Awards Exhibition in the RDS. We were delighted to partner with the RDS to add a new prize for the second year of the RDS Visual Art Awards. The Residency Award is valued at €5,000 and gives the winner full-time access to a room and studio space for three months (June, July, August 2018) in the Centre Culturel Irlandais in the heart of Paris.
Elaine Hoey was the recipient of the Residency Award for her interactive virtual reality MA work Stranger than Fiction is Fact. Elaine was also awarded the R.C Lewis Crosby Award, also worth €5,000. For further details on the awards and the winners please click here.
