The Place Project is a student-directed research project devised for first-year BA Art students from IADT in collaboration with IMMA. This project introduces students to practical speculative enquiry in response to a specific place and location.
The Place Project began in 2008 as a site-specific project focusing on IMMA. Students responded to IMMA as museum, institution, public space, historical site, architectural space, cartographical point, route, environment, etc. The Place Project has evolved into a comprehensive self-directed research project, incorporating peer and professional led-learning, professional mentoring, public presentations of active research on site and public exhibition. Using IMMA as place, students have developed research projects, creating artistic outcomes within the artists’ studios, the Museum building and the grounds.
From 24 – 28 March an exhibition of site-specific and site-responsive art works and projects by first-year BA Art students from IADT can be seen in various locations around the grounds and buildings of IMMA | RHK and via QR codes available at each location.
