Galway Arts Centre and Interface are delighted to collaborate in supporting Interface member Bryan Gerard Duffy as artist in residence with the Galway Arts Centre from 17th to 31st July.

Bryan Gerard Duffy is a multi-disciplinary artist working in paint, sculpture, lens-based work, moving image, and installation. He draws lines and also crosses lines, both physically and metaphysically, while investigating psychological and physical displacement.  

He is a graduate of the National College of Art and Design, Dublin and is now based in Mayo. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, including upcoming solo shows in the Ballina Arts Centre (2025), the Custom House Studios and Gallery, Westport (2024), and GOMA Gallery Of Modern Art, Waterford (2024). His work was also selected for the 193rd RHA annual exhibition (2023). Duffy has shown his work throughout Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Australia, and the United States.

Duffy was a recipient of the PLATFORM 31 award (2022) from Local Arts Ireland and the Arts Council of Ireland; the Mayo County Council Tyrone Guthrie Residency Award (2022); and the recipient of the Bolay Residency Award, Castlebar, Ireland (2020). 

He has been awarded numerous grants from the Arts Council of Ireland, including the Travel and Training award to participate in Artifariti Arts Festival in Algeria and Western Sahara (2017). A recent public art project includes the “Art Roundhouse” G.E.T.N.S. Commission, Newcastle, Galway, Ireland [pictured above] funded through the Irish Department of Education Per Cent for Art Scheme (2020). In 2021, he was elected to the Board of Trustees at the Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar, Ireland.

Duffy has also been the recipient of multiple national and international awards for his films, including being shortlisted for the Best Irish Human Rights Short Documentary with Sumud, Everyday Resistance at the Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL) awards (2016), and receiving Bronze Medal Award at the Global Independent Film Awards for his film Delivery.
