Future Academies: Vera Klute ARHA

RHA Talk

Free | Friends Room
On 11 Oct, 2023

To coincide with the RHA 200th year celebrations, this series of public talks will feature recent associate members who have been elected to the RHA to talk about their practice and reflect upon their place and role within the academy structure.

The series will continue in 2024 with further talks from both associate members and invited artists from outside the academy who work in collectives to look at the ongoing role of the group dynamic in supporting and sustaining artists’ practice.

Artist Bio:

Vera Klute is a visual artist based in Co. Kilkenny. She was born in Germany but is based in Ireland since 2001. Her work utilises a range of different media such as sculpture, painting, drawing and video animation.

Themes span from formal portraiture and public sculpture to kinetic installation. She is always interested in exploring new materials and processes and in this way her work has taken many different incarnations over the years.

She has exhibited widely in Ireland and abroad since graduating from IADT in 2006, including solo exhibitions at the RHA, the Butler Gallery, Limerick City Gallery (2-person show), the Molesworth Gallery, QSS Gallery and the LAB.

Her work is represented in many collections, including the National gallery of Ireland, The Office of Public Works and the Arts Council and she has won numerous awards. These include the Anita Young Award (2022) and the Hanley Energy Sustainability Excellence Award (2021), the Solomon Fine Art Award for sculpture (2020), the Hennessy Portrait Prize at the National Gallery and the Hennessy Craig Scholarship at the RHA (both 2015), the K+M Evans Award (2013) and the EVA Award at Wexford Arts Centre (2009). She has received several Arts Council Bursary Awards and was elected Associate Member of the RHA in 2018.
