‘Artlink Archive’ to be unveiled at Fort Dunree 26.10.23

ARTLINK has announced the launch of a new archive celebrating 30 years of artistic excellence. The exhibition will be unveiled to the public at the Saldanha Gallery, Fort Dunree on Friday 27 October and will be open for viewing from 10:30am to 4:30pm daily, up until Sunday 5 November 2023.

Curated by Dr Adriana Valderrama from Ulster University and Artlink Project Co-ordinator Martha McCulloch, the ‘Artlink Archive’ includes extensive materials and documentation that encapsulate a three-decades-long journey and is accompanied by an online digital archive. The motivation behind creating this exhibition lies in the understanding that having an archive is crucial for shedding light on the individuals and projects that form the organisation’s history.
The Artlink Archive is to be unveiled to the public at the Saldanha Gallery, Fort Dunree on Friday 27 October 2023.
Formed in 1992, Artlink has been at the forefront of bringing art to the local community through its exhibitions, workshops and innovative projects – nurturing artistic talent and providing local, national and international artists with a unique opportunity to conduct research, experiment, and create new and original works.

Artlink Project Co-ordinator Martha McCulloch said: “We’re incredibly proud to be unveiling our Artlink Archive, a testament to the creativity, dedication, and passion of all the artists and participants who have been part of our journey now for over 30 years.
“Indeed, this inspiring exhibition and accompanying online digital archive is a homage to a vibrant artistic community that has flourished within what we like to consider our 'Artlink Family'.
“I would like to take this opportunity to invite all art enthusiasts and the general public to visit and to add to the archive, share any materials e.g. invitations, programme leaflets and other artworks produced during the 30 years of Artlink. These will be professionally documented and added to the digital archive.”
