On 22 October 2018, Mary Sullivan was awarded the 2018 RDS Taylor Art Award of €10,000 for her BA work At Home, At War. The esteemed award dates back to 1878. Previous winners include Louis le Brocquy, Nora McGuiness and Sean Keating. The Taylor Art Award is annually given to an Irish art graduate to assist them with the development of their career as an artist.
Mary's At Home, At War video sculpture piece consisted of a self-constructed military style shed and a series of performance videos, designed to link the repetitive nature of domestic chores to the drill and precision of military discipline.

Mary's work will be exhibited in the RDS from 22 - 29 October.
