Karla Black is regarded as one of the pioneering contemporary artists of her generation. Experimenting with ways to float material, form and colour at eye level remains a constant preoccupation in Black’s work. This preoccupation will form a key thread in the exhibition at IMMA, which will present Black’s extraordinary creative output through a series of new works tailored for the spaces here, revealing the artist’s free, experimental way of working combined with a careful aesthetic judgement.

IMMA Collection: Fragments
This exhibition borrows its title from Philosopher Walter Benjamin’s comparison of the work of translation to re-assembling fragments of a broken vase – the individual fragments must come together, but need not be like each other. This could also be taken as an allegory for exhibition making, or collecting.

More Than One Maker
More Than One Maker shares incentives that bring art practitioners, cultural collaborators and communities together to make and activate art projects. Whether created by an artist or a collective, this exhibition uses multiple discourses to stimulate ideas of kinship, agency, utopianism, peer to peer learning and an appreciation for collaborative networks and vision.
