We primarily support artists based in Ireland, through commissions, hosting exhibitions and purchasing work for our collection and we are the proud custodians of one of the most important private corporate collections of contemporary art. The RDS Mason Hayes & Curran LLP Centre Culturel Irlandais Residency Award provides the winner with a wonderful opportunity to further their professional development and we hope this award will act as a springboard for an emerging artist at the early formative stage in their career.”
