PRESS RELEASE - 27 January 2011

The new season of the Irish Museum of Modern Art’s young people’s programme, Studio 8, begins on Saturday 5 February, providing 15-18 year olds with various ways to connect with all that is happening at the Museum. For the first session, IMMA Mediators Brigid McClean and Seamus McCormack will lead a gallery discussion and workshop based on portraiture in the modern age as featured in The Moderns exhibition. Artists will include Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Louis le Brocquy and Edward McGuire, all of whom create portraits that look well beyond the physical surface.

The next Studio 8 sessions take place on Saturday 5 February, Saturday 5 March, Saturday 2 April and Saturday 7 May, from 11.00am – 2.00pm.
