Join us at IMMA for a family exhibition that will make you light up!

Family Exhibition: Light Rhythms
15 February – 6 April 2014

Over the mid-term break join us at IMMA for Light Rhythms , an exhibition about sound, light and line that is activated by families and young people of all ages. In this space you will encounter artworks you can interact with to make your own light, colour and sound installations.

Interactive installations in the exhibition ask us to stop and listen - consider how you can change the sound in the room; use your body to create your own Patrick Scott inspired image; can you find two Ghost Ships that glow in the dark, perhaps in an unexpected place?

Over the course of the exhibition we are running a series of free Saturday drop-in workshops called Sound Bites, whereby different artists will add a new interactive element to the exhibition and test it out live with visitors. Starting this Saturday 15 February from 12noon to 4pm, join artists Fionnuala Conway and Mark Linnane, and their interactive video, A rainbow in the palm of my hand , 2014. Inspired by the Patrick Scott exhibition, and in particular his Christmas cards, we invite families to create their own colourful light painting. Using the torches provided turn to the projection screen and start painting with the torch pointed towards the screen. What will you create with the rainbow in the palm of your hand?

Light Rhythms will evolve and change, so drop in, take part and remember to come again as you will find something new each time!

Artists showing in the exhibition are Sven Anderson, Karl Burke and Russell Hart, Fionnuala Conway and Mark Linnane, Dorothy Cross, Patrick Hughes, Slavek Kwi, Gavin Murphy and Liam O’Callaghan.
This exhibition has been inspired by exhibitions by artists Patrick Scott, Haroon Mirza and the site-specific neon work Line Writing by Vong Phaophanit, and we hope that you will visit these exhibitions alongside Light Rhythms.

The exhibition and all events are free.
