Residency ProgrammeResidents

IMMA's residency provides opportunities for national and international artists, curators, critical writers and art professionals to research and develop their practices onsite at the Museum.



IMMA Residencies vary in time from a few days or months, to an entire year.  As a result our resident artists are regularly changing. Explore the work of current resident’s below, and visit our Artist A-Z Directory to get a more complete list of past residents at IMMA.

Current IMMA Residents


Jenny Brady Nov 2018 – Feb 2019

Jenny Brady is an IMMA 1000 artist. Her film work uses experimental narratives to explore ideas around translation, communication and the limitations of language. View Artist »

Neil Carroll May 2018 – Mar 2019

Neil Carroll is a IMMA 1000 artist. His practice sets out to explore the ability of pictorial space to meaningfully express and embody a perceived shift in how we conceptually construct the anthropological condition of the human figure, and the contemporary space it occupies. View Artist »

The Mothership Project Jan - Mar 2019

IMMA welcomes back The Mothership Project as part of a series of short studio research supports provided to the network over the last couple of years. The Mothership Project aims to support parenting artists in the development of their practice and to encourage arts organisations to make the art world a more inclusive place for artists with children.

Sandra Johnston February 2019

Sandra Johnston's performances are experiential in nature, based on improvisational processes that explore physical states of responsiveness, formed in relation to the actualities of specific situations and the moment of making. Johnston previously had a residency at IMMA in 2000 and is back for a short production residency nominated by The Project Art Centre.

Margaret Corcoran Mar - Apr 2019

Painter Margaret Corcoran pushes the boundaries between past, present, personal and historical narratives. Her new series of works explore where identity and nationality are addressed against a backdrop of Colonialism and the great beauty and complexities of European Art. Corcoran is on a Production Residency nominated by the Kevin Kavanagh Gallery. View Artist »

Selection and programming for 2019 is currently in progress and will be announced in the near future.
