Eye of the Storm: The IMMA Collection

This exhibition drawn from the IMMA Collection spans the period from 1940 onwards, with works by Jack B. Yeats, Louis le Brocquy, Patrick Scott, Robert Ballagh, Cecil King, Mainie Jellett and Patrick Collins. While the majority of work in the exhibition is Irish, works by international artists such as Valerio Adami, Josef Albers, Gilbert & George, Jesus Raphael Soto and Janine Antoni are also shown. The exhibition includes some exciting new additions to the Collection such as works by Michael Craig Martin, Vik Muniz and Juan Uslé, and recent Heritage gifts of work by Hughie O’ Donoghue and Sean Scully.

Eye of the Storm has been co-selected from the IMMA Collection by IMMA’s Director Enrique Juncosa and Marguerite O’Molloy, Assistant Curator: Collection.

A publication on the IMMA Collection is available with essays by Catherine Marshall, Senior Curator: Collection and Enrique Juncosa, Director. The first full-colour publication on the Museum’s Collection presents more than 180 artworks selected to give a sample of the quality, range and international nature of the works acquired by the Museum since its foundation in 1991.  Short texts accompany each work, together with an introduction on IMMA’s collecting policy by Director Enrique Juncosa, and essays on the history of the Collection and the Royal Hospital building by Catherine Marshall, Senior Curator: Head of Collections.  The publication is designed to give the Museum visitors, sister institutions at home and abroad, scholars and the ever-increasing number of groups and individuals interested in the Museum’s work a greater insight into the treasures it contains.  Price: €45.00 .
