IMMA is delighted to present the first solo exhibition in Ireland by Kim Gordon. With a career spanning more than three decades, Gordon is one of the most prolific and ground-breaking female creatives working today. Gordon, synonymous with Sonic Youth – the iconic band she co-founded in 1981 – is an artist who crosses boundaries between visual art, music, fashion, film, writing and performance, and insists on radical experimentation within every field.

As an overview of Kim Gordon’s practice over the past twenty-five years, this exhibition will be a substantial show that re-frames and contextualises her work as an artist and displays her innovation and crossover with music, poetry, politics and performance. The exhibition further enriches IMMA’s programming in recent years which has focused on revisionist art histories and establishing art contexts for female artists, past and present, with a punk sensibility.
