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 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 apartments also onsite. All facilities are self-catering and are fully equipped with necessary appliances and living basics including bed-linens, towels and laundry facilities. All accommodation comes with internet access, heating and electricity. Each studio space comes with heating, electricity, furnishings, a basic tool kit, desk lamp and wireless internet.
Not all artists on the residency programme opt to live onsite, some local artists may take a studio only and others guests may only avail of accommodation, depending on the focus and output of the residency.
Taking place from July – December 2021, A Radical Plot residency connects the Museum community, affiliated mentors and residents as a gathering of co-thinkers who will work together in adaptable, radical and dynamic ways to reignite the possibilities for creative continuity and inclusivity. Core values for the programme are care and repair, civic agency, play, inclusivity, community, ecologies, and the future. A Radical Plot Residency artists include, Aoife Dunne, Isadora Epstein, Clodagh Emoe, Sean Hanrahan, Chinedum Muotto, Liliane Puthod and Fiona Whelan with theatre company Brokentalkers, (Feidlim Cannon and Gary Keegan).
