Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA) invites applications of interest for a Virtual Artist Residency as part of the inaugural pilot project Test Space Residency, to take place for 8 weeks during the Autumn/Winter of 2021.


LCGA is the largest contemporary art gallery in the Mid-Western Region in Ireland, annually exhibiting national and international artists in a diverse exhibition programme.  LCGA is in the historic Carnegie Building on the grounds of the People's Park in Limerick City.  LCGA aims to become a model of a 21st century civic space.


Test Space Residency is a new and forward-thinking residency model that aspires to meet the needs of a wide range of art practitioners. It considers the availability of the LCGA space both physically and virtually. 


The Virtual Artist Residency will utilise the LCGA virtual space – a temporary online website platform.


This international, funded opportunity welcomes artists whose work may be suited to a temporary online space, or benefit from online development, promotion, or simply the time to think, plan and research, supported remotely by LCGA over the duration of the residency.


The residency will be informed by the Arts Council’s Equality Human Rights & Diversity Policy (
