Kunstverein Aughrim is a not-for-profit curatorial office and production agency for contemporary art projects, located on the ground floor of a townhouse in the village of Aughrim, County Wicklow. It is Ireland’s first art organisation based on the model of a Kunstverein and is part of the franchise established by Kunstverein in Amsterdam, with sisters in Milan, New York and Toronto.

Founded by Kate Strain in 2022 and designed to bridge the gap between artistic practice and public presentation in contemporary visual art in Ireland, Kunstverein Aughrim acts as a commissioning, development and production agency for new artistic productions. Kunstverein Aughrim supports, mentors, promotes and represents the artists with whom it works, seeking to develop opportunities for patronage, collaboration and engagement at an early phase of the creative process, and to carry that through to the presentation stage. At the core of Kunstverein Aughrim’s ideology is a commitment to performativity, a belief in the necessity of art, and a desire to create the potential for extraordinary encounters with artistic practice.

Kunstverein Aughrim is supported by The Arts Council of Ireland and Wicklow County Council.
