IMMA to close 12 January to 2 February 2009

The Irish Museum of Modern Art wishes to inform potential visitors that the Museum will be closed for renovations from Monday 12 January to Monday 2 February 2009 inclusive . This is due to extensive upgrading work being carried out on the building’s electrical supply. The Museum’s café and bookshop will also remain closed.

The popular In Praise of Shadows exhibition, presenting some 90 works in the form of shadows, shadow theatres, silhouettes and films, and the highly-praised William McKeown show featuring one of this country’s leading artists, will close as planned on 4 January. The ongoing Collection exhibitions, Exquisite Corpse and Self as Selves , will close on Sunday 11 January and will reopen on Tuesday 3 February.

The new exhibition programme for 2009 will get underway on 4 March with the opening of an exhibition of some 30 works by the internationally-renowned British artist Hughie O’Donoghue, donated to IMMA by the American art collector Craig Baker. This will be followed on 7 March by the largest and most ambitious exhibition yet seen in Ireland of the work of the acclaimed Irish artists James Colman, being shown at IMMA and also at the Royal Hibernian Academy and Project Arts Centre. A further exhibition, celebrating the donation to the Museum of 25 works from the prestigious Bank of Ireland Collection, including important works by Jack B Yeats, Paul Henry and Louis le Brocquy, will open to the public on 10 March.
