Naomi Sex is a Dublin-based visual artist. She has lectured for many years in the Fine Art Department at The Dublin School of Creative Arts (DIT). She has served on the board of directors at The Blackchurch Print Studio (as chairwoman and as secretary) and was a director on the Board of Visual Artist’s Ireland (VAI) from 2015-2017. Naomi completed a practice-based PhD in 2012. Based on this extensive period of research she developed a new strand of practice and now uses performance to produce understated theatrical gallery-based situations to articulate her ideas. In 2013 she was awarded The Arts Council of Ireland's "Visual Art Project Award, 2013" and The Dublin City Council's "Incubation Space Award” for The Synchronised Lecture Series, a performative event that featured in nine key Irish educational institutions simultaneously. In 2014 she was selected for The Artist in Residency Program at The Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) where she presented performance work at The Project Space and curated the 6IX Degrees event. In 2016, she produced a touring performance entitled Cheek By Jowl which was awarded The Artscouncil Visual Arts Touring and Dissemination Award and The Fingal County Council Artist's Work Scheme. The performance toured to Limerick City Gallery (LCG), Crawford Art Gallery, (CAG) and completed the tour at IMMA (Irish Museum of Modern Art). In 2017, Naomi will present a solo exhibition at The Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA), Dublin, Ireland.
