Hennessy Art Fund for IMMA Collection 2018

11 May - 16 September 2018

IMMA is delighted to present the third year of the Hennessy Art Fund for IMMA Collection. In 2016 Hennessy Ireland formed a unique partnership with IMMA to help fund the purchase of important works by Irish and Irish based artists for the National Collection. Works are sought that show excellence and innovation within contemporary art developments, and which represent a signal moment of achievement with the artist’s practice and capture a moment in time of Irish culture. They must also have been made within the previous five years. Artists are nominated by a selection panel and final recommendations are approved by the IMMA Collection & Acquisitions Committee, in line with IMMA’s Collection policy.

In 2016 the Hennessy Art Fund for IMMA Collection saw works selected by artists Kevin Atherton, David Beattie, Rhona Byrne and Dennis McNulty  and in 2017 works by artists Mark Garry, Maireád McClean, Ciarán Murphy and Yuri Pattison.

About Hennessy


Immersed in Irish heritage, Hennessy has evolved to become one of Ireland’s most well-known and cherished brands. Founded in Cognac, France in 1765 by Corkonian Richard Hennessy, the brand’s distinctly Irish heritage has stood the test of time and today draws on over 250 years of knowledge, talent, expertise and passion. It is a brand that is intrinsically linked to the Irish way of life and is complemented by Hennessy’s commitment to Ireland’s unique sociability and skill in creating unforgettable experiences. Hennessy’s Savoir-Faire is evident from its unique heritage, tradition and exceptional craftsmanship which create Hennessy Cognac. Though the Hennessy brand has evolved throughout the years, the true art form of its traditions and methods remains timeless.
