IMMA lends extensively from the Collection, nationally and internationally, to support the exhibition programmes of other public institutions. We regularly loan individual works, or groups of works, for specific exhibitions.
If you are interested in making a loan request please note that requests should be made as early as possible, with a minimum of nine months’ notice for loans within Ireland and a minimum of one year’s notice for international loans. This period is required to give us sufficient time to review your request, and prepare a possible loan, taking all the necessities into consideration.
In addition to specific or individual loans we also work with venues and organisations in Ireland to develop and devise exhibitions for their specific space, under the National Programme.
The IMMA National Programme was designed to promote the widest possible involvement with IMMA’s Collection and programmes, through supporting access opportunities to the visual arts in a variety of situations and locations in Ireland.
The National Programme worked with Arts Centres, galleries and museums across country and is also committed to working, where possible, with venues normally outside the scope of the contemporary art world.
All National Programme exhibitions were formed and organised in partnership with venues and groups who were encouraged to explore and develop a sense of ownership of the IMMA Collection as a national resource.
