This exhibition of recent acquisitions to the IMMA Collection is selected from artworks which have been acquired by direct purchase and donation and through long-term loans. The purchasing process is represented by such works as ‘Filament’ by Ann Hamilton, ‘Take me to the other side of the Ocean by Rebecca Horn’, and new works by artists such as Deborah Brown, Patrick Hall, Tom Molloy, Isabel Nolan and Paul Winstanley. ‘The Luncheon’ by Caroline McCarthy, winner of the AIB Art Prize 2001, is shown alongside other recent donations, including a painting by Paul Doran given by the Contemporary Irish Art Society and an important sketch by Micheal Farrell, ‘Madonna Irlanda’, from the Friends of the National Collections of Ireland. Loans to the Collection, shown here for the first time, include the paintings ‘Confidence’ and ‘Closing Time, Saint Stephen’s Green’ by Jack B. Yeats, a landscape by Peter Doig, a Matisse drawing and an important early painting ‘The Picnic’ by Louis le Brocquy.

Important Notice


We would like to advise our visitors that our Main Reception area is closed for renovation from 22 April until mid-June.  A temporary reception is open on the ground floor next to the original main entrance. While we prepare to open our next exhibition Hilary Heron: A Retrospective on 24 May, there are two exhibitions to see Derry Film & Video Workshop and Self: Determination: Artists Commissions. IMMA’s gardens and café are open to the public.
