glór is delighted to announce the appointment of a new part-time Curator in Residence to join the team from August 2020.

Dr Moran Been-noon is an Israeli Dublin-based curator, artist, and writer with experience of working within the arts sector in Ireland and Northern Ireland. She comes with an impressive CV which includes a PhD in Fine Art (Media) from NCAD, Dublin as well as an MFA in Computer Art from the School of Visual Arts, NYC, New York.

Moran is currently a Curator at Belfast Print Workshop in NI, and has curated projects at Engage Art Studios, Galway, PS2, Belfast, and MART Gallery, Dublin. She is a visual artist and a writer, a regular contributor of exhibition reviews and responses to The Sunday Times Ireland, Visual Artists Ireland Newsletter and CIRCA magazine.

As an artist she predominantly makes moving image installations, with a subject matter focus on political identity and post-migration living. As a curator she believes in inclusive curating and is primarily interested in multiplatform group projects, with a commitment to expanded practice. She sees curating as a practice of potential and works to fulfil this potential through her work with artists and community groups.

Moran has exhibited her work widely both nationally and internationally and selected exhibitions include Where you are lost, we are Sídhe, (May 2019) at Engage Art Studios, Galway, and Little Piece, (2015), Custom House, Westport.

glór Director Orla Flanagan says, ‘I am delighted to welcome Moran Been-noon and believe she will bring a fresh new voice to our visuals arts programme, and the collaboration will hugely benefit glór and our communities.

Moran is ‘very excited to get such an opportunity to work with the people in glór and get to know the visual arts community in County Clare and the work being done.

Dr Moran Been-Noon will curate a range of exhibitions and installations for glór’s gallery spaces, and further expand the arts centre’s reach to audiences and various communities through contemporary visual art.
