Time out of Mind: Works from the IMMA Collection
31 May - 2 September 2012
Time out of Mind brings together the work of 27 leading Irish and international artists, mainly in works created from the 1990s onwards. Installed in the 14 galleries on the ground floor of the North Wing of the NCH building, the exhibition responds to the various cultural and intellectual layers of Earlsfort Terrace, in particular the building’s former scientific function as part of the National University’s Medical School.
To coincide with the exhibition, the first in a series of public seminars entitled ART + will explore the subject of collaboration between art and science on Tuesday 10 July 2012 at Earlsfort Terrace. This includes a keynote address by Siân Ede, Arts Director of the Gulbenkian Foundation, followed by a discussion with panel speakers including Dorothy Cross and Tom Cross, Marie Redmond from Creative Technologies at Trinity College, Michael John Gorman, Director of the Science Gallery, and Mick Wilson, GRADCAM Fellow at NCAD.
In addition, to mark IMMA’s tenure in the NCH building, a series of lectures continues under the title Agents of Architecture in collaboration with the Irish Architecture Foundation. High profile international speakers have been invited to represent their involvement in the subject, their understanding of its definition, from the typical to the most unorthodox views. International speakers confirmed to present in the Autumn series 2012 at Earlsfort Terrace, include Anne Lacaton, Lacaton Vassal, Paris; Eva Franch, Director, Storefront for Art and Architecture, New York; alongside other national and international participants. Admission to talks and lectures is free but booking is essential, please click here to book
As part of a new audience building initiative for the NCH site, free guided tours of the exhibition for individual visitors and small groups will be available on Tuesday and Saturday at 4.00pm, Wednesday and Friday at 1.15pm and Thursday at 6.00pm. The exhibition will remain open until 7.00pm on Thursdays.
