On Tuesday 26 May we will launch IMMA Screen a new online screening series showcasing film and video works from the IMMA Collection. Previously only shown in an exhibition space, IMMA Screen provides an exciting opportunity for audiences to view artworks by Helen Cammock, Phil Collins, Vivienne Dick, Kevin Gaffney, Isabel Nolan and Alanna O’Kelly in their own homes. We are pleased to present Sanctuary/Wastelands (1994) by Alanna O’Kelly as the first work to be screened as part of this programme. Each screenings is available online for one month alongside a new interview with the artist.

As we reflect on the psychological implications of newly imposed physical distancing between ourselves and others, IMMA Screen invites a timely reflection on the power and politics of representation and the continuous fabrications of the self and the other. In different ways, the works engage with performance and the role of the camera in the construction and mediation of identity. A number of these works also deal poignantly with ideas of loss and erasure.
In this unusual time the #IMMAInsideOut Collective Project allows us to share art, ideas and our experiences. We asked our followers on social media to share their art and lives with all of us in a collective effort to combat social isolation and boredom using the hashtag #IMMAInsideOut.
In the last few weeks lots of people have decided to join us on this adventure and take photos of their lives these days – their unusual desktop or art studio at home, what they see from their window, who are they sharing the quarantine with or their kid’s creativity – sharing them on their social media channels and tagging us.
View our image gallery as a digital exhibition, a reflection of our shared experience of these exceptional times. Why not join us and share your world with us #IMMAInsideOut.
Our Explorer at Home art activities are available for children and adults to do and make at home. We share a new art activity every Wednesday afternoon on our social channels. You will find specially selected artworks, inspired by the IMMA Collection Online and our temporary Exhibition Programme, as starting points for creative activities.
We look forward to seeing your creations and invite you to share them with us online. Make sure to tag us and use the hashtag #ExploreratHome so you can see your work on our website.
All old and new activities are available to view on our Explorer at Home webpage under Explore More.
