What We Call Love: From Surrealism to Now
What We Call Love asks what does love mean in a society based more and more on individualism and consumption? How has the concept of love in the twentieth century evolved over time, and in what sense does it permeate art, from Surrealism to now? How does art represent love and what does it tell us about what love means in our contemporary culture?

Karla Black is regarded as one of the pioneering contemporary artists of her generation. Experimenting with ways to float material, form and colour at eye level remains a constant preoccupation in Black’s work. This preoccupation will form a key thread in the exhibition at IMMA, which will present Black’s extraordinary creative output through a series of new works tailored for the spaces here, revealing the artist’s free, experimental way of working combined with a careful aesthetic judgement.

IMMA Collection: Fragments
This exhibition borrows its title from Philosopher Walter Benjamin’s comparison of the work of translation to re-assembling fragments of a broken vase – the individual fragments must come together, but need not be like each other. This could also be taken as an allegory for exhibition making, or collecting.
