Jaki Irvine, If the Ground Should Open...
 
04:15
23 September 2016 – 15 January 2017 In this film hear from artist Jaki Irvine speaking about her major new commission for IMMA; If the Ground Should Open… Presented at IMMA for the first time on the occasion of the centenary of the historic Easter uprisings of 1916, this new work takes as a point of departure Irvine’s 2013 novel ‘Days of Surrender’, which focuses on Elizabeth O’Farrell and Julia Grenan. These were two of more than a hundred women who were ready to die or kill for the possibility of a different Ireland but whose stories were all but written out of official Irish history, consigned to the margins as the narrative was masculinised. This new video and sound installation in the courtyard galleries uses their names as ‘the ground’ of a score for nine musicians. The eleven tracks were composed by Irvine using the canntaireachd system – originally developed as an oral scoring system for Scottish Highland pipes. The basic musical motif in classical piping (piobaireachd) is called ‘the ground’ of the piece, which is then built upon with additional notes and melodies. In If the Ground Should Open… the names of women involved in the 1916 Rising, form the ground. In this way they are performed and remembered, becoming part of the ground we walk on in 2016. The project was also developed from the leaked Anglo-Irish bankers taped conversations. For more info on this exhibition, including exhibition guides, essays and upcoming events please visit: http://www.imma.ie/en/page_237087.htm Admission to this exhibition is free. If the Ground Should Open... is part of the official Ireland 2016 Programme. This commission is presented as part of an exciting on-going initiative, New Art at IMMA, proudly supported by Matheson, which allows IMMA to continue to support artists’ vital work in a strand of programming that recognises and nurtures new and emerging talents, new thinking and new forms of exhibition-making. There is also a LIVE EVENT on Tuesday 13 December 2016 / 7pm / Great Hall, IMMA / €8 Jaki Irvine presents the entire work performed live by the project performers; Louise Phelan, Cats Irvine, Cherry Smyth, Hilary Knox, Izumi Kimura, Liz McClaren, Jane Hughes, Aura Stone and Sarah Grimes.

IMMA presents Monir Sharhroudy Farmanfarmaian; Sunset, Sunrise
 
03:10
Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, Sunset, Sunrise 10 August - 25 November 2018 More Information: http://www.imma.ie/en/page_237284.htm Book Now: https://imma.ticketsolve.com/shows/873594223/events/128731249 IMMA is delighted to present Sunset, Sunrise, a retrospective exhibition of works by Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian. With a career spanning more than six decades, Farmanfarmaian is one of the most prominent contemporary Iranian artists working today. Farmanfarmaian was born in Qazvin, Iran in 1924. Between 1945 and 1957, she spent her formative years amidst the New York art scene, a time marked by friendships with fellow artists such as Frank Stella and Andy Warhol, before returning to Iran. Exiled following the Iranian Revolution of 1979, Farmanfarmaian returned once again to her native Iran and has been firmly re-established there since 2004. Farmanfarmaian is considered to be one of the most important Iranian artists working today. Sunset, Sunrise reflects a life lived between two cultures, across histories of East and West. It investigates the abundance and mystery of nature, the universe and our place within it. More than seventy artworks are on display ranging from painting, sculpture, jewellery and tapestry to collages and works on paper. There are previously unseen drawings such as Untitled 4 (2017) and Untitled (2012) together with her signature mirrored pieces. Often kaleidoscopic with rich geometric and architectural forms, these works encapsulate Farmanfarmaian’s ability to merge traditional Persian techniques with contemporary Western abstraction. The title, Sunset, Sunrise invokes the sky that both separates and connects the East and West; a moment of dawn and dusk that captures the elusive, emotive quality of life. Two key pieces, Sunset (2015) and Sunrise (2015), mark the beginning and close of the exhibition, and this poetic reflection between nature and the human heart is at play throughout Farmanfarmaian’s practice. As one of the great female artistic pioneers, Farmanfarmaian can be set alongside 20th century innovators such as Etel Adnan, Carol Rama and Hilma af Klint, all of whom have been rediscovered for their vital contributions to the development of contemporary art, and been represented within exhibitions at IMMA in recent years. This is the first time Farmanfarmaian’s work has been shown in Ireland. Sunset, Sunrise is organised by IMMA, in collaboration with Sharjah Art Foundation, United Arab Emirates. The exhibition travels to Sharjah Art Foundation in 2019. A major publication accompanies this exhibition, featuring contributions from Rahel Aima, Hoor Al Qasimi, Tina Kinsella, Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, Rachel Thomas, Murtaza Vali, together with poetry by Michael Davitt, Rumi and Sohrab Sepehri. The catalogue is co-published by IMMA and Sharjah Art Foundation. Available to purchase from the IMMA Shop. A new Limited Edition print of the work of Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, titled Sunrise, 2018, has been created on the occasion of this exhibition and will be available to purchase at the IMMA Shop. This 2018 Edition is created from the original work Sunrise, 2015. Edition of 100. Members can avail of a 20% discount on Editions, a 10% discount on other shop items, and free entry to the exhibition for themselves and a guest. Join today

Vivienne Dick, 93% STARDUST

Vivienne Dick, '93% STARDUST' at IMMA (Irish Museum of Modern Art) from 16 June 2017 until 15 October 2017. Learn more at http://www.imma.ie/en/page_237203.htm Irish artist Vivienne Dick is an internationally-celebrated film-maker and artist. Dick was a key figure within ‘No Wave’, a short-lived avant-garde scene in the late 1970s in New York led by a collective of musicians, filmmakers and artists including Nan Goldin, Lydia Lunch, Arto Lindsay, James Chance and many others. Dick has gone on to develop an extraordinary body of work which has been shown in cinemas, film festivals and art galleries around the world. Dick’s work is marked by an interest in urban street life, social and sexual politics, and the history of ideas. 93% STARDUST is a survey exhibition of Vivienne Dick’s work comprising selected films from the ‘No Wave’ period including 'Guérillère Talks' (1978), 'Beauty Becomes The Beast' (1979) and 'Liberty’s Booty' (1980). Recent film works include 'The Irreducible Difference of the Other' (2013) and 'Red Moon Rising' (2015). Dick also premieres her new film work 'Augenblick' made while on IMMA’s Residency Programme in 2017. Nan Goldin and Vivienne Dick shared a period in New York where both artists began to make work which documented a short-lived, highly creative moment in downtown New York. Many of the subjects of Nan Goldin’s photographs appear in Dick’s films, and they clearly were an influence on one another. At IMMA, 93% STARDUST is presented alongside the solo exhibition Weekend Plans by Nan Goldin. Rachael Thomas, the curator of these two exhibitions at IMMA, states, “These are historic exhibitions that bring together two pioneering artists that have shaped photography and film in a raw and real sense. By showing Nan Goldin and Vivienne Dick alongside each other, not only are we acknowledging their friendship but we are celebrating artists that have defined our understanding of life.” The exhibition presents early Super 8 works from late 1970s New York in a brightly coloured pop inspired lounge environment, while her more recent and new works are shown in a more classic darkened cinema space. Also included in the exhibition is a space to relax in-between viewings with reading material which inspired her new film, film stills, an antique sofa - a prop from her new film, and a short film starring her cat Ginnie shown on a portable DVD player. For Dick, the title of the exhibition 93% STARDUST, suggests that we are moving into a new age, following the age of Enlightenment, where man is no longer the centre of the universe.

IMMA presents Mary Swanzy, Voyages
 
06:53
Mary Swanzy, Voyages 26 October 2018 - 17 February 2019 More Information: http://www.imma.ie/en/page_237286.htm Mary Swanzy (1882-1978) is a unique Irish artist. Her level of achievement, world travel and original thinking is unmatched in Irish art, yet this is the first retrospective of her work in 50 years. Born in the late Victorian era, by her early twenties Swanzy had mastered the academic style of painting. She witnessed the birth of Modern art in Paris before the First World War and her work rapidly evolved through the different styles of the day, each of them interpreted and transformed by her in a highly personal way. In 1920, against the background of violence of the Irish War of Independence, she left Ireland in a form of self-imposed exile. Traveling first through Eastern Europe and the Balkans, she then sailed to Hawaii and Samoa from 1923 to 24 - literally crossing the globe. While there she produced a body of work that is unique in an Irish context with images that show her proto-feminism and critique of the colonial system. Best known for her Cubist and Futurist paintings, after 1914 she exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon des Indépendants and the Beaux Arts, alongside artists who are now household names. By 1946 she was included in exhibitions with Chagall, William Scott and Henry Moore but after this time her work fell into obscurity. This may in part have been due to her status as a female artist and indeed she was vocal on issues of gender, remarking; ‘if I had been born Henry instead of Mary my life would have been very different’. This exhibition aims to introduce audiences to her extraordinary achievements. This IMMA initiated exhibition aims to reintroduce our audiences to this artist's extraordinary achievements and reinstate her as a Modern Irish Master. The exhibition is presented as part of the IMMA Modern Irish Masters Series.

IMMA presents Wolfgang Tillmans Rebuilding the Future
 
03:44
Wolfgang Tillmans, Rebuilding the Future 26 October 2018 - 17 February 2019 More Information: http://www.imma.ie/en/page_237287.htm Wolfgang Tillmans (b. 1968, Remscheid, Germany) is one of the most accomplished and widely celebrated artists working today, recognised for major contributions to the development of contemporary photography in terms of subject matter, production, scale, presentation and methodology. Tillmans’ relationship with IMMA began over 20 years ago, when he first exhibited work at the museum in 1997 as part of a group exhibition of young emerging artists Projects and more recently in 2015 in the popular exhibition What We Call Love: From Surrealism to Now. This is his first solo exhibition in Ireland and he has created this exhibition specifically for the IMMA galleries. It follows his critically acclaimed solo show in Tate Modern London in 2017. Rebuilding the Future comprises over 100 works and captures Tillmans’ unique way of working. This new exhibition for IMMA mixes works from throughout his career and in numerous formats, installed in IMMA’s galleries in direct relation to the physical spaces and atmosphere of the museum. While primarily a lens-based artist, Tillmans also works in a variety of other media. The exhibition includes works on paper made with and without a camera, sound work, moving image works and installation. Also central to Tillmans’ practice is the prolific production of books, catalogues and magazine editorials, and more recently, live and recorded music. An immersive new sound work, I Want to Make a Film (2018), which engages with concerns over the speed and development of personal technology and its effects, is shown here at IMMA for the first time. Rebuilding the Future includes work that is concerned with the process of time, whether it be measured through people or places. The exhibition functions as an open question for the audience to interpret. This broad range of subject matter is reflected in the variety of production and display methods seen in the exhibition. In this, as in all exhibitions produced by Tillmans, the work is selected and installed to reflect both the nature of the physical space and Tillmans’ immediate concerns at the time of the exhibition.

Nan Goldin, Weekend Plans
 
01:44
Nan Goldin 'Weekend Plans' at IMMA (Irish Museum of Modern Art) from 15 June 2017 until 15 October 2017. Learn more on http://www.imma.ie/en/page_237204.htm Nan Goldin is one of the most compelling and internationally renowned photographers working today. 'Weekend Plans' features both iconic and as yet unseen works by Goldin, ranging from the 1970s to 2016. These include the ground-breaking 1985 slideshow 'The Ballad of Sexual Dependency'; photographs of friends, family and lovers; sixteen recent and rarely exhibited drawings; and a series of images taken in Ireland in 1979 and 2002, which have never been shown before. Goldin’s work shares highly personal stories about her own life and those close to her, revealing a deeply sensual world of friendship, love, and transgression. Arresting in their intimacy and sheer honesty, the artist has stated, “I photograph directly from my life. These pictures come out of relationships, not observations”. 'The Ballad of Sexual Dependency' - the name she gave her ever-evolving slideshow - eventually grew into a forty-five minute multimedia presentation of more than 700 photographs, accompanied by a musical soundtrack. The work is a deeply personal narrative taken from Goldin’s own intimate life experiences throughout the late 1970s and ‘80s which include photos of the artist with her lover, her friends taking drugs, making love and partying, children of her friends, and photos of several of her friends who died from AIDS. “The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is the diary I let people read,” Goldin wrote. “The diary is my form of control over my life. It allows me to obsessively record every detail. It enables me to remember.” Throughout this exhibition there is a particular focus on the role and expression of female relationships in Goldin’s work. Many of the photographs in this exhibition include images of Vivienne Dick, and show their enduring friendship. Taken over the course of three decades from the late 1970s to the early 2000s, the photographs were shot across various locations such as New York, New Hampshire, London, Dublin and Donegal. A selection of these images form part of a series of unseen photographs from Ireland in which Goldin is showing at IMMA for the first time. Taken during her visits to Ireland with Vivienne Dick in 1979 and 2002 they include landscapes, seascapes, portraits of Vivienne and details of Irish life taken around Donegal, Galway and Dublin. For Irish audiences, some of the scenes carry an almost colloquial visual quality – there are images of sheep, cows, purple skies, mossy rocks and dark beaches. At IMMA, 'Weekend Plans' is presented alongside the solo exhibition '93% STARDUST' by Irish artist and film-maker Vivienne Dick. Both Goldin and Dick were key figures of the ‘No Wave’ movement, an underground music, art and film scene associated with New York’s avant-garde in the late 1970s. Rachael Thomas, the curator of these two exhibitions at IMMA, states, “These are historic exhibitions that bring together two pioneering artists that have shaped photography and film in a raw and real sense. By showing Nan Goldin and Vivienne Dick alongside each other, not only are we acknowledging their friendship but we are celebrating artists that have defined our understanding of life.” A new Limited Edition has been produced by Nan Goldin, titled 'The Singing Pub' is available to purchase at the IMMA Shop. Visitors are advised that this exhibition contains adult themes and explicit imagery that may not be suitable for all audiences.

Simon Fujiwara, The Humanizer at IMMA, Dublin
 
04:46
Hear British/Japanese artist Simon Fujiwara and curator Rachael Thomas speak about Fujiwara's new work entitled 'The Humanizer' showing at IMMA from Fri 20 May - Sun 28 August 2016. Presented by IMMA on the occasion of the centenary of the Easter Rising, The Humanizer is Fujiwara’s proposition for an imagined Hollywood biopic composed almost uniquely of sound and based on the life of historical Irish nationalist figure Roger Casement (1864-1916). Created with contemporary Hollywood movie professionals including renowned screenplay writer Michael Lesslie (Macbeth, 2015; Assassin’s Creed, 2016) and Oscar winning designer Annie Atkins (The Grand Budapest Hotel, 2014; Bridge of Spies, 2015), the script was then enacted by a company of professional actors in Dublin, before being set to a musical score that evokes a prolonged Hollywood trailer. The sound element, which includes Hollywood style music and foley, was produced in Berlin in collaboration with artist and sound designer Moritz Fehr. Set across a series of four rooms that house objects and personal effects, the sound fragments of the biopic interject into the rooms at unexpected times, rupturing what appears to be, at first glance, an authentic historical exhibition of Casement’s life. Fujiwara’s selection of objects did not belong to Casement, however, but are props loaned from Berlin’s renowned Babelsberg Film Studio where a number of historic movies from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, 1927, to Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds, 2009, have been filmed. The Humanizer seeks to evoke the experience of a big budget Hollywood movie with the most modest means. Without the seductive moving pictures associated with movies to communicate exactly what we are seeing, the audience is no longer a passive recipient but an active agent in visualising the movie. The Humanizer asks if today’s audience, with its unprecedented reserves of visual information can picture an entire movie, its locations, cast and even its message without ever having to see it? The Humanizer is one of three major new works commissioned by IMMA that reflect on the legacy of the commemoration of the Irish State. It is presented as part of an exciting on-going initiative, New Art at IMMA, proudly supported by Matheson, which allows IMMA to continue to support artists’ vital work in a strand of programming that recognises and nurtures new and emerging talents, new thinking and new forms of exhibition-making. The work is presented as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme and additional support was provided by the Goethe Institut Irland. Filmed and Edited by Evan Flynn, it Productions.

For booking information, please visit please visit http://www.imma.ie/en/page_237202.htm * * * Rachael Thomas, Senior Curator: Head of Exhibitions, IMMA, introduces the genesis, themes and artists within the major group exhibition 'As Above, So Below: Portals, Visions, Spirits & Mystics', together with the co-curator of the exhibition Sam Thorne, Director, Nottingham Contemporary, UK. The artists interviewed here include David Beattie, Stephan Doitschinoff, and Hayden Dunham. The video provides a brief summary of the exhibition, its themes, its history and the story of its inception. In 2015, IMMA held an exhibition titled 'What We Call Love: From Surrealism to Now' which focused on the themes of love, faithfulness, intimacy and relationships in contemporary art. One of the key themes that arose from this exhbiition was the idea of spirituality being the highest form of love as it is a very powerful and intimate form of devotion and practise. Alongside the co-curators, artists David Beattie, Stephan Doitschinoff and Hayden Dunham, appear within the film to discuss their individual contributions to the exhibition and their experience with spirituality in the context of their work. Artist David Beattie describes his inspiration for becoming an artist and how his past influences his current work. Commissioned specifically for 'As Above, So Below: Portals, Visions, Spirits & Mystics, ''Interventu' (2017) is a piece by Brazillian artist Stephan Doitschinoff inspired by the devotional culture of Brazillian christianity and created in response to the architecture of IMMA. American artist Hayden Dunham describes her work 'WELT' - 'an energetic system that uses activated charcoal as well as other activated minerals that collect energy - something that is felt rather than seen'. Dunham is known for work that is visually experienced through her use of materials and mediums. The exhibition takes places in the South East and East Wing Galleries until 27 August 2017 with an installation by artist Stephan Doitschinoff located in the main courtyard. Filmed and produced on the occasion of the exhibition 'As Above, So Below: Portals, Visions, Spirits & Mystics' at IMMA – Irish Museum of Modern Art. Videography by Cian Brennan.

What's in store in IMMA for 2017
 
08:12
Listen to IMMA Director Sarah Glennie introduce the programme highlights from 2017, with a contribution from artist Vivienne Dick among others. IMMA will be bringing the work of several leading International artists to Dublin audiences this year, including Rodney Graham (CA), Nan Goldin (USA) and Jac Leirner (Brazil) all of whom will have their first Irish solo exhibitions in Ireland at IMMA. Through our landmark international group show As Above So Below: Portals, Visions, Spirits & Mystics we are also particularly pleased to bring to IMMA the work of several international masters; Hilma af Klint, Kandinsky, František Kupka and Sigmar Polke; cult artists like James Lee Byars, Ira Cohen and Cameron; and some of the most exciting artists living and working today including Steve McQueen and Bruce Nauman, among others, many of whom have never exhibited in Ireland before. The programme was launched officially at IMMA on Tuesday 14 February, where IMM Director Sarah Glennie commented; “throughout 2017 IMMA will continue to develop new platforms in our programme through which we can support artists to make new work, realise their ambition and develop new thinking; whether through exhibitions, commissions across our programme or our artist residency programme. We saw in 2016 the valuable role contemporary artists can play in helping us to understand our times, and the opportunity for their work to creating a space for reflection, debate and difference. We are committed to creating this important space within Irish life and to welcoming audiences, from across Ireland and beyond, into a dynamic and evolving experience of contemporary art and contemporary life. Our programme extends beyond the gallery space to encompass talks, performances, engagement and learning opportunities, research programmes and residencies and with the IMMA Collection: Freud Project remaining at IMMA through 2017, we look forward to sharing the work of these extraordinary artists with our audiences through the year.” Film made by Evan Flynn and IT Productions.

Rachael Thomas, Senior Curator, Head of Exhibitions, IMMA introduces Frank Bowling 'Mappa Mundi' from the artists' personal studio in London.

British Guiana, 1934). Learn more about this exhibition on IMMA.ie: http://www.imma.ie/en/page_237283.htm Over a long and varied career, the evolution of Bowling’s work can be seen as a reflection of a major evolution in painting throughout the latter half of the 20th century. Coming out of the fertile grounds of the Royal College of Art in the mid 1960s Bowling, along with contemporaries like David Hockney and Ron Kitaj, exhibited widely in London and the UK, garnering acclaim for ambitious early works such as The Execution of Mary Queen of Scots, and Big Bird. Though previously not as widely celebrated as some of those friends and contemporaries, Bowling is now considered an essential figure in the discourse around art, identity and post-colonialism. Named for one of Bowling’s celebrated ‘map’ paintings, Mappa Mundi highlights exceptional works from throughout Bowling’s career from the 1960s onwards. Through his ‘map’ paintings Bowling addresses issues of history and migration, both his own as a Commonwealth immigrant to the UK and latterly the United States, and broader mass movements of people, from colonial slaves through the ‘Middle Passage’ from Africa to South America, to socio-economic motivated migration. Bowling’s work on geographic and human movement has special relevance in a time where discussion of national borders and immigration has never been more urgent. The decisive moment of Bowling’s artistic development was his move to New York in 1966. Bowling’s painterly experimentation had led him to consider how abstract painting could be invested with social, cultural, and personal meaning without losing the essential and formal principles of painting. This lead him to move away from relatively straightforward figurative representation into more abstract work concerned with questions of form and colour. In the post-war period New York had produced abstract painting of a certain scale and ambition, and this context, along with the size of Bowling’s New York studio, allowed him to work on the larger, often monumental scale works on view at IMMA. Over the last 50 years Bowling has exhibited, written, taught and curated widely in the United States and the UK. A recipient of multiple Guggenheim Fellowships and other awards, he also received consistently favourable reviews for, among others, his solo exhibitions at the Whitney Museum, New York (1971) and the Serpentine Gallery, London (1986). This exhibition at IMMA showcases Bowling’s work from throughout his career, covering the major developments within his practice. Also included is selected material from the Frank Bowling archive, and several films featuring footage and interviews with the artist, including a specially created documentary featuring Frank Bowling in conversation about Ireland and Dublin and their influence on his work with Rachael Thomas, Head of Exhibitions, IMMA. Frank Bowling: Mappa Mundi rightly identifies Bowling as a major figure in painting of the last 50 years. Alongside such milestones as being the first black artist elected to the Royal Academy (2005), the first black British artist to have work acquired by the Tate (Spreadout Ron Kitaj, 194-86, acquired 1987), and being appointed an Officer of the British Empire (2008), Bowling continues to produce ambitious and complex work today.

IMMA Art | Memory | Place : Artist's Interview with Hong-An Truong
 
13:54
In conjunction with the IMMA Programme Art Memory Place, watch the artist Hong-An Truong discuss her film works; A Measure of Remorse, 2009 and Tell Me Terrible Things They Have Known, 2016, presented in IMMA’s Project Spaces in 2016. Both works are part of Hong-An Trong’s larger project that draws on the life and work of writer Iris Chang, author of The Rape of Nanking (1998). This book brought international attention to the military atrocities committed by Japan against China during World War II. A Measure of Remorse re-imagines a confrontation between Chang, the Japanese ambassador to the U.S. at the time, Kunkhiko Saito, and the PBS journalist Elizabeth Farnsworth in which they argue about what constitutes a “real” apology. This video plays out an ambiguous encounter between the three characters, exploring the limitations of language in relation to trauma. Also presented as part of a loop presentation is Hong-An Truong’s most recent work, Tell Me Terrible Things They Have Known, 2016. Utilising Chang’s archives and footage shot at the Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall in Nanjing, this work is a meditation on the relationship of memory and history when fixed narratives begin to fall apart. Art | Memory | Place is a year-long programme at IMMA of talks and events taking place over the course of 2015-16 in the context of the ‘decade of centenaries.’ Focusing on artists whose work addresses themes relating to memory and place, the purpose of this programme is to broaden and deepen the current discussion about the subject of remembrance and commemoration and to take account of such work.

IMMA announces landmark Lucian Freud Project for Ireland alongside an expanded 2016 programme of new work celebrating the radical thinkers and activists whose vision for courageous social change in Ireland and beyond remains relevant to us today. Watch IMMA Director Sarah Glennie, commissioned artists Jaki Irvine and Duncan Campbell and Head of Exhibitions Christina Kennedy talk about the 2016 programme highlights at IMMA (Irish Museum of Modern Art) Sarah Glennie, Director of IMMA, said: “We are delighted to announce today that the IMMA Collection has secured an important long-term loan of 50 works by Lucian Freud (1922-2011); one of the greatest figurative painters of the 20th-century. From September 2016, the IMMA Collection: Freud Project will be presented in a new, dedicated Freud Centre in the IMMA Garden Galleries for five years. With this extraordinary resource IMMA will create a centre for Freud research with a special programme of exhibitions, education partnerships, symposia and research that will maximise this exciting opportunity on offer in Ireland.” “Ireland’s commemoration year 2016 presents an important moment to examine the role of the artist in shaping our contemporary society, and we have commissioned a number of leading artists, including Duncan Campbell, Simon Fujiwara, Grizedale Arts and Jaki Irvine, to create and present new work that reflects the legacy of Ireland’s past as a means to understand our present" “The focus of IMMA’s 2016 programme is to celebrate the radical thinkers and activists who paved the way for courageous social change, while reflecting on the artistic and cultural community who played an active role in the period leading up to 1916. They imagined creativity as central to the new society and in 2016 we consider their legacy and their ideals, many of which we are still working towards today, over a hundred years later. We ask what artists can tell us about our collective cultural identities and the societies we live in today whilst considering the role artists can play in helping us remember, reflect and commemorate. We explore these questions through the lens of contemporary arts practice; creating a space for difference, debate and imagination in Ireland’s year of national reflection.” To read the full press release click here http://www.imma.ie/en/page_237107.htm or visit our website for a full list of programmes and events. http://www.imma.ie Commissions by Duncan Campbell, Simon Fujiwara and Jaki Irvine are three major new works being commissioned by IMMA that reflects on the legacy of the commemoration of the Irish State, supported by Ireland 2016.

Historica - Republican Aesthetics at IMMA | Interview with Invited Curator Sumesh Sharma
 
04:02
In this introductory film you can hear from invited curator Sumesh Sharma (Clarke House Initiative) speak about the themes and work in a new exhibition for IMMA; 'Historica - Republican Aesthetics' (15 September 2016 - 26 February 2017) Considering colonisation, independence, and nationhood, 'Historica' imagines ‘the nation’ as a conceptual project and ‘modernism’ as an aspirational value, exploring this through the work over over 20 international artists. Colonisation was based on the superiority of a nation – be that language, religion or race but does adherence to religions, languages and race define the modern democratic state? This exhibition asks whether nationalism in post-colonial societies, though democratic and secular, curbs its citizens fundamental rights of freedom such as one's right over sexuality, gender and body. Historica considers the state's responsibility towards art and its aims, by way of the museum concept, to continue the modernism project as way to construct national identity based on a constitution. Sumesh Sharma co-founded the Clark House Initiative, Bombay in 2010 where he is presently the curator along with being the invited curator to the biennale of African contemporary art - Dak'Art 2016, Senegal. His practice deals with alternate histories that are informed by the Black Arts movement, Socio-Economics, Immigration in the Francophone and Vernacular Equalities of Modernism.

Emily Jacir: Europa at IMMA I Exhibition introduction

With an introduction by Rachael Thomas (IMMA's Head of Exhibitions/ Curator of ‘Europa’) and an in-depth introduction from the artist, this video provides an introduction to ‘Europa' presented at IMMA from 26 November 2016 - 26 February 2017. In this exhibition, a first survey in Ireland, Emily Jacir presents seminal artworks alongside newly commissioned projects which reflect the strong links between Palestine and Ireland, and the shared history of British Colonial Rule. In the film the artist speaks about some of the key works in the exhibition including 'ex libris' (2010 – 2012), 'from Paris to Riyadh (drawings for my mother)' (1998–2001) and her new site-specific project 'Notes for a Cannon (2016)', which takes as its point of departure the Clock Tower that once stood at the Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem but was destroyed by the British in 1922, under the command of Ronald Storrs, the British Military Governor of the occupied city. Europa (the Italian and Arabic word for “Europe”) includes sculpture, film, drawings, large-scale installations and photography that focus on her work in Europe, in particular Italy and the Mediterranean. Renowned for work that is as poetic as it is political and biographical, Jacir investigates silenced historical narratives, translation, movement, resistance, transformation and exchange.

The Plough and Other Stars at IMMA | Interview with Invited Curator Kate Strain
 
04:10
In this exhibition intro you can hear from invited curator Kate Strain, describing 'The Plough and Other Stars' (15 September 2016 - 26 February 2017) a new exhibition for IMMA that proposes some alternatives to death through space travel, time travel and reincarnation. Works by Riccardo Arena, Richard John Jones, Lara Khaldi and Yazan Khalili are brought together in the immortal domain of the museum, to explore strategies towards life extension, by artistic if not other means. The exhibition functions as both a show, for people to come and visit, and a rehearsal space for the development of a new theatrical production, in collaboration with Cow House Studios and The Centre For Dying On Stage. Riccardo Arena presents a collage of metaphysical enquiries based on extensive research into the Solovki Islands and Russian cosmism. Richard John Jones stages a series of material encounters with forgotten histories, inspired by the Isolarii (island books) of the fifth century. Through a lecture performance (on 26 November 2016) Lara Khaldi and Yazan Khalili attempt to communicate with bodies who have disappeared from earth. And with only a ghostly presence, artists from The Centre For Dying On Stage will explore the poetics of immortality throughout the exhibition.
