Exhibitions > New Art at IMMA

IMMA is committed to supporting remarkable emerging artists to make exciting new work through a dynamic series of commissions, projects and group exhibitions. New Art at IMMA, proudly supported by Matheson, allows IMMA to continue to support this vital work in a strand of programming that recognises and nurtures new talents, new thinking and new forms of exhibition-making.

This major three-year partnership (2015 -2018) sees Matheson supporting approximately ten artists per year at IMMA with the commitment particularly enabling the commissioning of new work by the Museum.

The first exhibition supported under this new partnership was a solo exhibition by Scottish sculptor and Turner Prize (2011) nominee Karla Black, whose exhibition featured seven new site-specific sculptures.
