As Láthair/Off Site representsa further stage in the development of a long standing relationship between Féile na Bealtaine and IMMA’s National Programme. The partnership continues to highlight the importance of promoting dialogue between a national cultural institution and a regional arts initiative. Artists Kate Buckley, Andrew Duggan and Domhnal Ó Bric worked with pupils and teachers in the eleven gaeltacht national schools of Chorca Dhuibhne. The artists encouraged the pupils to draw on the experiences of visiting IMMA and facilitateda response to selected work from the IMMA Collection. The exhibition comprises some 22 works from IMMA’s Collection including artists such as Nigel Rolfe, Rebecca Horn, Ilya Kabakov and Tim Rollins. A short film will be shown documenting the project.
The project is supported by the Department of Education and Science, Eálain na Gaeltachta, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Féile na Bealtaine, Oidhreacht Chorca Dhuibhne, the Arts Council of Ireland and Údarás na Gaeltachta
