IMMA is pleased to announce highlights from our 2015 exhibition programme. We commence in April with the revisiting of a key figure from Irish Modernism Gerda Frömel anda new exhibition from Diogo Pimentão, followed by a new site-specific exhibition from Karla Black in May. During the summer we present two major exhibitions from Stan Douglas and Etel Adnan; in both instances their first solo exhibitions in Ireland.

Later in the year we have new exhibitions from Chloe Dewe Mathews and Grace Weir and amajor exhibition called What We Call Love. Co-curated by Christine Macel, Chief Curator at Centre Pompidou,  and Rachael Thomas, Head of Exhibitions at IMMA, it will include works from Cecily Brown, Miriam Cahn, Elmgreen and Dragset, Jim Hodges, Jeremy Shaw and Wolfgang Tillmans among others. IMMA will be commissioning new works for this exhibition.

There are several exhibitions throughout the year that draw from the IMMA Collection. In the spring we present Fragments, with works from Aleanna Egan, Ronan McCrea, Alan Phelan, Camille Souter, GILBERT & GEORGE, Nigel Rolfe, Marina Abramovic, Brian O’Doherty and Kenneth Hall. This will be followed in November with artist Nick Miller’s response to the Edward McGuire studio, part of the IMMA Collection, in Meetings: Into the Studio of Edward McGuire. A concurrent exhibition, Approaches to Paper, will explore the practice of celebrated Irish Modernists such as Evie Hone and Mainie Jellett to contemporary artists such as Antony Gormley, Andrew Folan and Kiki Smith.

Our new festival Summer Rising will return this June with more art, music, performance and food events designed to open up the beautiful buildings and grounds of IMMA, day and night.
