Duration of IMMA Residency

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.

  • Awarded, invited and open call residencies have an average duration of 3-6 months.
  • IMMA 1000 Invited offers a bi-annual, year-long residency to a selected artistic practice of exceptional merit.
  • The International Visitors Programme for curators offers short stays from three days to one week.
  • Production Residencies have variable timelines.

IMMA Residency Accomodation

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.

IMMA Resident Artist Neil Carroll

“The studio and grounds at IMMA provide the perfect location for the processes within my practice to unfold; the more formal aspects of the existing architecture acting as a backdrop and juxtaposition to the more experimental spaces of my practice.”
