Bringing Irish and International practices together, the IMMA residency programme aims to generate a fresh creative space for participants at a crucial point in their career – whether emerging or established art professionals. The Residency provides access to the museum’s audience and resources, and allows for participants to leave IMMA with expanded possibilities, new networks and work.
Residents are welcomed to propose the dissemination of their art practice through various contexts that come to light during time spent at IMMA.
The IMMA residency has multiple programming strands, which means participants often encounter many different practices and projects over the course of a residency at IMMA. We believe these overlaps are core to the expansive nature of the IMMA residency experience, and help to broaden networking possibilities available to residents.
The residency operates in the converted coach houses adjacent to the main museum building. There are several studios dedicated to the programme.
The onsite communal house, called The Flanker, provides a private room for each resident with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities, the house can support live-in wheel chair access on the ground floor. In addition to the communal house there are three onsite apartments. All facilities are self-catering and are fully equipped with necessary appliances and living basics including bed-linens, towels and laundry facilities. Each studio space has heating, furnishings and access to a basic tool kit. There is wireless internet throughout the campus.
Not all artists on residency opt to live onsite, some may decide to take a studio only residency and other researchers or guests may only need accommodation, access to resources is dependant on the focus and output of the residency.
The IMMA residency programme dates back to 1995. Our Artist Directory includes residency artists from 2004 to the present day. To search an artist within the directory please select in the dropdown menu the ‘Residency Artist’ filter. We are working to add the entire archive to the Directory, but in the interim you can view a list of residents from 1995 – 2004 below.
