IMMA is delighted to release additional tickets for An Evening with Kim Gordon. A limited number of tickets will go on sale on Friday 19 July at 9.00am. Tickets €25.00 + BF.
IMMA is delighted to present, An Evening with Kim Gordon, in the beautiful surroundings of the IMMA Courtyard, which promises to be an intimate and unmissable event. The evening features live performances by Body/Head, an experimental electric guitar duo composed of Kim Gordon and Bill Nace; poet Elaine Kahn; and guitarist Heather Leigh.
With a career spanning more than three decades, Kim Gordon is one of the most prolific and ground-breaking artists working today. Synonymous with the iconic band she co-founded in 1981, Sonic Youth, her work crosses boundaries between visual art, music, fashion, film, writing and performance, and insists on radical experimentation within every field.
The performance is programmed alongside Gordon’s solo exhibition She bites her tender mind which runs from 27 July to 10 November 2019. The exhibition features a series of new works including recent and previously unseen paintings, drawings, and ceramic sculptures, alongside a glitter installation and an immersive video projection.
Those attending can view the exhibition prior to the performance (limited capacity). Food and drinks will be available to purchase on the night.
Note: Please be advised this is an outdoor event, while we hope for sunshine, please dress appropriate to the weather. Please note our 17th century courtyard has a cobbled surface appropriate footwear is advised.

Writing has appeared in Frieze, The Brooklyn Rail, jubilat, Poetry Foundation, Art Papers, and elsewhere.
