Mark Joyce has had solo exhibitions in Ireland, UK and the USA, won awards from The British Council, Thomas Damman Trust, and the Georgette Chen fellowship in 2016. His work is in the collections of the Irish Museum of Modern Art and the Arts Council of Ireland. He has been the Artist in Residence at the Josef and Annie Albers Foundation, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Singapore, and the Icelandic Centre for the Arts. He was the inaugural Director of Arts at Yale-National University of Singapore, and Visiting Professor at the Kyoto City University of the Arts in 2016 and Erasmus Fellow at the University of the Arts Helsinki in 2019.
His work explores the anomalies and phenomenological strangeness of our optical experience, with ideas drawn from scientific and philosophical concepts of physical light.
