National College of Art and Design is offering Masters Scholarships in Fine Art, 2019 to support art research and practice at the National Forensic Medical Hospital at Dundrum and at Portrane in the Dublin Area.
The scholarship is offered through the School of Fine Art at NCAD and represents an opportunity for the recipient artists to work with the National Forensic Medical Hospital (NFMH) in a period that covers the hospital’s relocation from its current location in Dundrum to its future new build facility at Portrane in North Dublin. This is the third (of three) Masters scholarships to be awarded – each of two years duration.
The scholarship is undertaken through the structure of the MFA Fine Art and the MFA Digital Art Masters programmes at NCAD.
It is expected that the project work and art outcomes developed in relation to the context of the NFMH will be pursued through the various module requirements expected of the MFA programmes. A group of postgraduate peers will develop a variety of self-generated practice proposals meaning significant on-campus delivery all day Monday through the year with further requirements on some other days. it is expected that substantial practice-based time will be spent pursuing dimensions related to the NFMH.
This practice-based art scholarship is conceived as comprising several elements. The project requires developing an engaged process potentially with residents, staff, location, function and transition as a means of developing artworks, to be placed and integrated into the hospital / residential environment.
For the funder, this engagement with process is a means of supporting a sophisticated art engagement where artworks emerge from a process. This is envisaged to include proposals, negotiated and evolved, to fully-fledged finished artworks, permanently installed. There is the scope and desire to include elements of process, sketch, development and test in this framing.
For the student, it is envisaged that evidence of the process and the art works evolved become permanently part of the hospital environment and part of the HSE collection, whilst acknowledging the authorship of the student. This is a means of developing a suite of skills and experience that are particular and transferable.
In order to maximize the effectiveness of a materials budget and the translation of art material and forms, attention should be paid to digital, lens-based and other forms of reproduction, in order to maximize visibility, as work meets its new environment. This should be understood as a negotiated process with key staff.
In addition to a materials budget there is also funding available to facilitate transport to the hospital.
It is expected that work in relation to the environments will be enhanced by other engagements by the art school.
Scholarship applicants should outline their interests and capacities in a letter (approx. 400 words) and submit this via NCAD’s online application system together with supporting documentation for the MFA Fine Art/MFA Digital Art programmes.
Applicants should be able to demonstrate the ability to work with others as a component of some of their art outputs and process
