Late Opening at IMMA
In a new initiative, the Irish Museum of Modern Art is introducing late-night opening on Thursdays throughout July and August. Starting on Thursday 5 July and continuing until Thursday 30 August, IMMA will remain open each Thursday until 8.00pm. The Museum’s café and bookshop will also be open until 8.00pm.
The longer opening hours will afford visitors an added opportunity to enjoy the most high-profile and popular series of exhibitions in the Museum’s 16-year history. These include:
• The exhibition of 70 works by Lucian Freud, one of the world’s most celebrated artists, which has already attracted 22,000 visitors since it opened on 6 June.
• The major Anne Madden retrospective, spanning the artist’s career from the 1950s to date, which opens on 27 June.
• The large-scale display of recent acquisitions, with works by such leading artists as Dorothy Cross, Hughie O’Donoghue and Candida Höfer.
• The exhibition of prints by the 18th-century’s master printmaker William Hogarth, including some of his best known satirical series.
In addition, from 11 July a selection of works by the distinguished Indian artist Nalini Malani will also be on show, followed from 27 July an installation by the internationally-acclaimed Irish artist James Coleman.
Admission to all exhibitions is free.
