Following graduation in 2021 with an MA in Art Research and Collaboration (ARC) from IADT, The Dock awarded Clíodhna Ní Anluain an artist commission and an invitation to exhibit. In 2021 she contributed to Cohost, a virtual exhibition curated by Astrid Newman at the LAB, Dublin. She is also a graduate of NUI Galway, UCC and TU Dublin (DIT).
Formative experience as a theatre producer and curator influences her art and research practice, her work as a writer and editor with The Lilliput Press + New Island. She is a longstanding arts and culture radio programme maker, currently commissioner and producer of RTÉ’s Book on One and SPOKEN STORIES radio + podcast new story collections.
‘Generating visual media, text and sound I engage with built spaces: their physicality and intangible qualities, their architectural and cultural contexts; their actual and memorized archives; and with what can be missed or made new. Beginnings of making allure. Production and output happen in their own present. Such considerations are integral to my work around early Irish arts television'.
‘Spectrum was RTÉ television’s first arts series, beginning transmission in 1962. No Spectrum programme people saw exists today and its paper archive is incomplete.’
