About the Collection

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.

  • Free, Booking Required

We invite you to take a close look at artworks from IMMA’s Collection and Exhibition Programme in these welcoming, conversational tours. Talking about an artwork with someone else can open our eyes to new details and reveal things we did not see at first. These tours will help you to slow down and spend time with selected artworks, discussing them with others in a convivial and supportive atmosphere.

Everyone is welcome to join these free tours – no previous experience is required.

We offer Talking Art both in person in our galleries and grounds and online using the Zoom platform. This is a free programme. Upcoming dates and details are available on this page, please scroll down the page and click on the programme you wish to participate in.

IMMA Horizons, Lifelong Creativity for the Curious

IMMA Horizons aims to contribute to new thinking on how creativity can positively impact health and wellbeing through programming and partnerships.

Extensive research has identified the role of the arts and creative engagement in the promotion of wellbeing across the life course. Building on the strong history of arts and health in Ireland, IMMA Horizons contributes to new research and ongoing conversations in Ireland and globally, advocating for arts experiences to be recognised as an important part of a healthy life.

IMMA Horizons provides free creative experiences and events for adults to meet and explore art together at a relaxed pace, in a sociable and supportive environment that encourages active participation by all. Take time for yourself and discover new ways of looking at the world and connecting with others, through facilitated experiences at IMMA and online.
