Array Studios

An established studio group of contemporary artists.


Hidden on the second floor building on King Street, Array (formerly Magpie Studios) was established in 1994 by a group of early career artists intent on making a difference to the world of visual art in Belfast.

Over the past 20 years Array has seen a vast number of artists come through the doors, some stay for a short while others settle in for longer. Past members include Caragh O’Donnell, Ruth Mc Cullough, Duncan Ross, Susan Philipsz, Ashley Holmes, Deirdre McKenna, Tim Millen and Sean Lynch.

Currently Array houses seven artists and a number of associate members. The variety of work produced by Array studio members displays the great diversity of art available in Belfast, working in print, drawing, sculpture, sound, video, performance, installation and photography.

Array also has a project space ‘Incube’ which offers emerging artists the chance to have a temporary studio for free and the opportunity to show work with the support of the studio members.
