IMMA - New Galleries and IMMA @ NCH at Earlsfort Terrace

From 31 May 2012 the Irish Museum of Modern Art’s exhibitions programme is based in two separate locations – the New Galleries in the grounds of the Royal Hospital in Kilmainham and the ground floor exhibition spaces in the National Concert Hall building in Earlsfort Terrace. The move to the NCH building is due to the extensive refurbishment works being carried out at the main building at the RHK throughout 2012.

Ferran Garcia Sevilla, Limbo 12, 2001. Mixed Media on Linen, 200 x 270 cm. Private Collection. The Museum's temporary exhibition programme regularly juxtaposes the work of leading, well-established figures with that of younger-generation artists to create a debate about the nature and function of art. In the past years this includes exhibitions by such prominent artists as Elizabeth Peyton, Alexander Calder, James Coleman, Hughie O’Donoghue, Terry Winters, Alan Phelan, Lynda Benglis and Philippe Parreno, from the United States, Ireland and France. Works being shown range from painting and sculpture to installation, photography, video and performance.

Alan Phelan, Goran’s Stealth Yugo, 2009, Chrome plated steel, plastic and rubber, Made in collaboration with Goran Krstic, car designer from Zastava/Yugo car factory in Kragujevac, Serbia. Commissioned by the Irish Museum of Modern Art, 2009.

These exhibitions usually last three to four months and up to four shows can be on view at any one time. IMMA originates many of its exhibitions but also works closely with a network of international galleries and museums. The Museum also displays its Collection in rotating temporary exhibitions as well as projects and exhibitions based on the work of its Education and Community Departments.
