The IMMA Collection is a unique resource which is made available to the public through a vibrant programme of temporary exhibitions and projects. Collection Exhibitions may explore the work of an individual artist, or address a theme or historic period.
During 2020 the IMMA Collection: Freud Project, comprising of 32 paintings and 20 works on paper by Lucian Freud, will become the frame for an investigation into the timeless subject of the relationship between the artist and their studio and the role of the studio as a space of production. In all its forms the studio continues to exert a fascination as the physical and conceptual frame as an artist’s work processes and as an enduring context from which art emerges. This programme of research and engagement will build upon existing ways of thinking about the studio and will focus on the contemporary situation in Ireland.
The exhibition is made possible by the IMMA Collection: Freud Project 2016-2021, a five-year loan of 52 works by Lucian Freud to the IMMA Collection by private lenders. This is the fifth exhibition to be presented as part of the project.
