Moran Been-noon is a Dublin-based visual artist, independent curator, and art writer. As a curator she is primarily interested in multiplatform group exhibitions, with a commitment to expanded practice. Her practice is international, aimed at developing both Irish audience’s exposure to visual art produced elsewhere, and promote Irish artists’ work in international settings. As an artist she predominantly makes moving image installations, with a subject matter focus on political identity and post-migration living. Her recent work involves exploring physical manipulations of voice, skin, and landscapes in order to examine questions of foreignness and belonging. As part of her practice she works with a dance artist in Landing Collective, a collaboration focused on the experience of acculturation with a feminist point of view.
Been-noon has curated projects in gallery spaces and off-site for independent galleries throughout the island of Ireland. She produced and led creatively Platform Art Belfast’s in Supermarket Art Fair in Stockholm in 2016, and a pop-up gallery in Electric Picnic Festival 2009. In 2019 she was invited to curate an exhibition focusing on the life experiences of individuals with Intellectual Disabilities at PS² in Belfast as well as the inaugural exhibition in the newly launched gallery space of Engage Art Studios in Galway. Her writing has featured in such publications as Circa Magazine and Visual Artists Ireland News Sheet. She is an active participant in the Irish arts community, and acted as board member at Platform Arts in Belfast, and is currently a co-director at Basic Space Dublin.
