‘Bloomers Magazine’ was founded in February 2018. Its initial premise was to be a bi-annual printed publication that discusses the work of emerging artists based in Ireland. It has since developed into an art collective that collaborates to produce the printed publication, related events and projects such as Bloomers Zine Stall.
Bloomers documents moments that benchmark how emerging artists are responding to certain themes or what their interests are as a group. As a collective with feminist leanings that produces a publication and delivers related talks and events – Bloomers goal is to provide a platform for emerging female artists to learn about one another and to be learned about by the public.
Bloomers Zine Stall is a travelling collection of zines made by predominantly Irish and some international artists. Bloomers facilitates the distribution of these publications via Bloomers Zine Stall which is a pop up market stall.
