Brown Mountain Diamond is an experimental artist-run art space in deep rural Ireland. We are homed in a small farm complex with farmhouse, outbuildings, barn, yards and fields. It is an art centre situated in North County Kilkenny and is a facility that supports diverse forms of art making, from visual to sound, through a series of projects, residencies and events. The project is founded, owned and operated by visual artist Carl Giffney. It takes much of its ethos and methodology from previous art projects including The Good Hatchery (co-founder, director / 2007-2016) and Frontiers in Retreat (participant, artist / 2013-2018). Eimear Malone joins Brown Mountain Diamond from 2021 as a further directing force, carrying out curated projects, hosting residencies, making proposals and developing the facility as a whole. From 2023, Sara Damaris Muthi is our Curator of Visual Arts. She joins the team and is involved in everything from application selection, programming, to working with resident artists and coordinating funding proposals. Brown Mountain Diamond is many people, and already many things, and it relies on an ongoing stream of input and output.
