In conjunction with the opening weekend of her IMMA Collection: Then and Now exhibition, artist Janet Mullarney discusses key developments of her longstanding career and the influence of her time spent in Italy.

Mullarney is highly regarded as  one of Ireland’s most significant artists working today, recognized for making distinctive small fragile sculptures juxtaposed with theatrical backdrops, lighting schemes and drawings in which to reveal the power and imagination of the artists’ mind.

Fellow Collection artist Helen O’Leary, moderates this discussion, reflecting on shared artistic experiences and interests that span Mullarney’s practice.
