Following the highly successful exhibition The Moderns, which was shown at IMMA from October 2010 to April 2011, its content has been used as a template for developing a Virtual Museum. This initiative has been developed outside of IMMA by web design company Ebow and is an experimental endeavour whose design is independent of IMMA’s input and requirements.
IMMA Collections Department has assisted this venture by obtaining copyright for the use of images. All such copyrights obtained are for The Moderns Virtual Museum template only and not for further use. IMMA is grateful to Vinylmatt who designed the virtual tour of The Moderns exhibition which provided Ebow with the content which they incorporated into their virtual museum design.
The initiative is funded by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

DECIPHER: Digital Environment for Cultural Interfaces; Promoting Heritage, Education and Research
IMMA is a partner in DECIPHER, a multimillion Euro online research project, supported by the European Union, to help people learn more about art collections in museums, galleries and other cultural institutions. The work will take three years (2011 – 2013) and will result in exciting new technology to enable cultural institutions and the public to present collections using narrative and story online. The research consortium is led by the DIT’s Digital Media Centre, and IMMA is joined by fellow partners: the National Gallery of Ireland, Open University (UK), SSL (UK), BUT (Czech Republic), and Alinari 24 ORE SpA (Italy).
