IMMA’s National Programme presents exhibition in Dun Laoghaire

474: mise-en-scène, an exhibition resulting from a collaborative project between the Institute of Art, Design and Technology and IMMA’s National Programme, opens to the public at the Drawing Project Gallery, Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin on Friday 8 March 2013. The official opening of the exhibition takes place on Thursday 7 March at 6.00pm at the Drawing Project Gallery.

As a component of their seminar studies module at IADT, graduating students of the BA (Hons.) in Visual Arts Practice co-curated this exhibition of works from the IMMA Collection in response to the theme ‘mise-en-scène’ . The project focused on the behind the scenes work of the Museum Collections Department exploring the various aspects of caring for a Collection, including conservation, storage, technical and installation considerations.  474: mise-en-scène consisted of an extensive programme of talks and workshops with IMMA Curatorial, Mediator and Technical staff. 

Artists included in the exhibition are Stephen Antonakos, Robert Ballagh, Christo, Michael Craig-Martin, Marcel Duchamp, David Godbold, John Kindness, Sol LeWitt, Paula Rego, Richard Wilson and Paul Winstanley. Through their curation and installation decisions, the students investigated how bringing these works together might create a critical conversation on the selection, staging and behind-the-scenes aspects of creating an exhibition.

A selection of student’s own work is also being shown as part of the exhibition.

474: mise-en-scène continues until 13 March 2013. Admission is free.
Opening hours:
Monday –Saturday: 11.00am - 8.00pm
Sunday: 12noon - 6.00pm
The Drawing Project is located in DunLaoghaire town centre; it can be reached easily by public transport and is located directly across the road from both DunLaoghaire DART station and the 46a Bus terminal. See (External)
