Portraiture has dominated visual arts practices and popular culture for centuries. Yet never before have young people been exposed to their own self-image and the portraits of others so prevalently in their daily lives. With the growth of image technology, selfie culture, social media and instagram we are constantly fulfilling the roles of both subject and viewer, whether consciously or unconsciously.

In response to this phenomenon and to coincide with the museum’s current exhibition A Vague Anxiety, IMMA After are holding a portraiture workshop for adults facilitated by artist Paola Catizone. This workshop will be relaxed in approach, with refreshments provided, and participants will be given the opportunity to experiment with gestural line, before playing around with drawing portraits of each other. Participants with all levels of creative experience are welcome.

To reserve your place, please book online.

IMMA After

IMMA After is an art collective, established through IMMA’s Engagement and Learning Programme, that was born of the desire to create impactful events that reflect the museum’s programming. Our members include emerging artists, writers, students and art professionals. Though we vary in experience, our aim is to carve out a space of learning, collaboration and freedom to explore ideas in diverse ways. Through discussions, tours, workshops and social events, IMMA After hopes to make this space as engaging, open and accessible as possible.
