Basic Space: Basic Space is a Contemporary Art Practice Group based in Dublin.They support to artists in 3 different strands: 1. A core group of Studio Artists make use of the space on a permanent basis as an open plan communal workspace.2. Artists can make use of the space as short-term work/exhibition space. Project Artists are appointed by invitation or on the strength and suitability of their proposal. 3. Basic Space Projects/Exhibitions are curated and developed by the Basic Space team.

Primary Resource is a curatorial project taking place in 126 throughout 2015 that aims to make a practice based response to the 126 FOOTFALL research report that was published in March 2015. FOOTFALL began an line of enquiry into what separates the activities of artist led organisations from those of other art institutions in Ireland and what role they play in artists’ careers. With Primary Resource we invite five diverse artist led organisations to react to the FOOTFALL research and findings though their own practice. These five responses may take varying forms and will take place in the 126 gallery space throughout 2015. Each organisations response to one curatorial arc will contribute to a process that can be critically viewed as a whole.
