The Irish Museum of Modern Art wishes to inform potential visitors that, owing to essential maintenance, its First Floor Galleries will remain closed until further notice . This has become necessary due to certain difficulties with the galleries’ lighting system, which were discovered during routine maintenance and which need to be addressed as a matter of urgency.
This closure means that the Michael Craig-Martin and Iran do Espírito Santo exhibitions will be closed to the public; as will the Irish Art of the Seventies exhibition and the Louis le Brocquy display.
The newly-opened All Hawaii Entrées/Lunar Reggae exhibition, featuring works by 20 leading international artists addressing the processes involved in creating art, is unaffected by the closure. The Hearth exhibition presenting works from IMMA’s Collection on the theme of home, organised in collaboration with Focus Ireland, will also remain open.
The magnificent and much-admired wall painting by Michael Craig-Martin in IMMA’s courtyard will also be available to visitors as will the very popular Miró sculpture, given to the Museum on long-term loan earlier this year. The Museum’s café and bookshop will also remain open as usual.
Commenting on the closure, the Museum’s Director, Enrique Juncosa, said: “We very much regret this inconvenience to our visitors and we are working with the Office of Public Works to remedy these difficulties as soon as possible. I should also like to take this opportunity to reassure our visitors, and the many artists and lenders associated with IMMA, that at no time has there been any danger to the public, to our staff or to the artworks on show in the Museum.”
