Our Vision for MART LA

MART has showcased Irish contemporary art, provided space and opportunities in Ireland and internationally for artists for over ten years. With a decade of experience behind us we look forward at expanding our MART organisation to have an international base in Los Angeles - MART LA.

We are a hunt for a space to test the waters for a 1 year pop up gallery and are delighted to have a taster showcase as part of IRELAND WEEK 2017.

A Contemporary Irish Arts Center in Los Angeles housing an art gallery, studios and performance space; promoting leading and emerging Contemporary Irish Visual Art, Culture and Performance serving the West Coast of the United States of America.

Developing and promoting contemporary Irish culture, visual art, music, performance and film in Los Angeles 

Developing a creative platform to support and challenge Irish artists and as a means of promoting Irish cultural activities in LA.
