Joining one of our guided tours is a great way to get to know IMMA and our exhibitions in more detail. Our experienced guides are extremely knowledgeable about art in general, and each IMMA exhibition in particular. This tour will focus on the Mary Swanzy Voyages exhibition.

The tour is free, and lasts 30 mins.

No booking is required, just come to the Meeting Place pillar in the Main Reception. Please arrive early for tours as numbers are limited to a max of 20.

Please note that tours occasionally may not take place if other talks or workshops are in progress at the same time, so please inquire at reception on the day, or in advance of your visit.  If a tour is cancelled for unforeseen reasons we will remove it from the What’s On Calendar.

 


About the Artist

Mary Swanzy 1882–1978

Mary Swanzy was born in Dublin. She spent periods in Paris before the first World War and from 1920, she travelled through Eastern Europe and the Balkans and then to Hawaii and Samoa. Best known for her Cubist and Futurist paintings, Swanzy exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon des Indépendants and the Beaux Arts. By 1946 she was included in exhibitions with Chagall, William Scott and Henry Moore. The first major retrospective of Swanzy’s work was held in IMMA in 2018.
