Altered Images, Irish Museum of Modern Art
17 June – 15 August 2010
Altered Images is the result of a partnership initiative of IMMA’s National Programme, Mayo County Council Arts Office and South Tipperary Arts Service. The exhibition works on many levels. Firstly, curatorial decisions were taken to ensure a cohesive body of work. The selected works all make reference to classical or art historical sources, either in the method of depiction or their subject matter. Each art work is accompanied by a multi-sensory display in order to provide meaningful access. In addition, an audio CD and Braille documentation of the large-print exhibition catalogue will be available on request. Artist Amanda Coogan has produced an interpretive signed-representation of the exhibition in the form of a filmed performance. Sign language tours will be available by arrangement and an accessible website for the project can be found at www.alteredimages.ie.
Altered Images was shown at the South Tipperary County Museum, Clonmel, and at the Ballina Arts Centre, Ballina, Co Mayo, in 2009. A guide is being produced to address the issues raised to date from these exhibitions, as the long-term aim is to use the exhibition as a basis for further research and development. IMMA will also host artists’ talks and a series of discussions with interested organisations.
A catalogue accompanies the exhibition with texts by Padraig Naughton, Director, Arts & Disability Ireland, and Cliodhna Shaffrey, curator. The catalogue is available in Braille on request and is also accompanied by an audio CD.
