Lennon, Porous Plane

13 October 2017 - 30 September 2018
Main Galleries | East Wing


Lennon, Folded/Unfolded, 1972. Acrylic paint and linen, 3m x 50m. Courtesy the artist.

Porous Plane by Irish artist Lennon (b. 1947), presents a range of work from the 1970s to the present which includes 1/3/92B (1992) from the IMMA Collection and Folded/Unfolded (2017), shown originally in Lennon’s first solo exhibition at the Project Arts Centre, Dublin in 1972 and made especially for the IMMA Galleries as part of this exhibition.

Lennon’s exhibition is part of a curatorial approach that explores works in the IMMA Collection where artists are invited to place their early work among their current practice - ‘Then and Now’. Lennon’s art which he titles Porous Plane, began in the 1970s with the Folded/Unfolded paintings and has continued to explore innovative forms of painting, most recently, Al13s, Denier7s, Autochthones and the on-going Arbitrary Colour Collections.
