02 Nov 2017 The IMMA Collection presents Coast-Lines, a major new exhibition in gallery and on twitter, exploring our sense of place, perception, representation and memory with major works by Tim Robinson, Dorothy Cross and Brian O’Doherty.
Coast-Lines is a major new exhibition from the IMMA Collection that draws on the paradox implicit in the word ‘coastline’ - for never has a coast followed a linear course. Instead the title throws a line around a 12 month programme of changing displays of artworks and archival material that will explore our sense of place, perception, representation and memory.
