    Sean Scully - Pink Robe, 2009.

    Sean Scully – Pink Robe, 2009.

    Alice Maher, Sean Scully, Brian Maguire, Isabel Nolan and Paddy Graham are among the artists featured in the 20th anniversary auction in aid of Pallas Projects/Studios. The sale will be held on September 15 at 7 p.m. in the Irish Georgian Society’s City Assembly House, South William St. in Dublin. Located at The Coombe Pallas Projects/Studios (founded 1996) is a not-for-profit artist-run organisation dedicated to the facilitation of artistic production and discourse, via the provision of affordable artists studios in Dublin’s city centre, and curated projects.  Auctioneers Whyte’s say the event promises to be a gala affair. Guide prices range from 40 to 5,000.

    With the backdrop of an unwillingness of developers to allow for the provision of a long-term cultural aspect to the regeneration of city-centre areas throughout the boom years, PP/S has been searching, inhabiting, and fighting to maintain as many as eight semi-permanent locations since 1996, and many more temporary offsite exhibition/project scenarios. These have included a four-year exhibition programme in a semi-derelict block of council flats, a white cube space in a former milking parlour, and collaborative projects with and in Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane; the Irish Museum of Modern Art; Dublin Docklands; Fire Station Artists’ Studios; The Red Stables; The Model, Sligo; Catalyst Arts, Belfast; 126, Galway; The Black Mariah, Cork; Project 304, Bangkok; Sub-Urban Video Lounge, Rotterdam; Auto Italia South East, London and Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne.
