Join us as we celebrate the opening of three exhibitions:

WILLIAM CROZIER, THE EDGE OF THE LANDSCAPE
13 OCTOBER 2017 – 8 APRIL 2018
IMMA presents a major retrospective of the Scottish-born, Irish artist William Crozier (1930-2011). Best-known in Ireland for the lyrical landscapes he made close to his home in West Cork from the mid-1980s, this exhibition will present these familiar works against a backdrop of his early work inspired by the Existentialist movement and the anxieties of the post-war period.

IMMA COLLECTION: COAST-LINES
13 OCTOBER 2017 – SEPTEMBER 2018
Drawing on the paradox implicit in the word ‘coastline’ – for never has a coast followed a linear course – the title of this exhibition throws a line around a 12 month programme of changing displays of artworks and archival material that will explore our sense of place, perception, representation and memory. Artists include Dorothy Cross, Carlos Cruz-Diez, John Hoyland, Clare Langan, Richard Long, Anne Madden, Anita Groener, Michael Mulcahy, Brian O’Doherty, Donald Teskey, Tony O’Malley, Alexandra Wejchert, Bridget Riley and OMG Collective.

LENNON, POROUS PLANE
13 OCTOBER 2017 – SEPTEMBER 2018
Porous Plane will include a range of work by artist Lennon (b.1947), from the 1970s to the present day such as Folded/Unfolded (1972) and a recent Al13 painting. The Folded/Unfolded paintings first appeared in Lennon’s first solo exhibition at the Project Arts Centre, Dublin in 1970. He will make a Folded/Unfolded especially for the IMMA Galleries as part of this exhibition. The Al13 painting on aluminium is composed of five composites – each one a composite of brushstroke and surface. There are no verticals in the painting, instead the viewer is the vertical who completes the composition by standing still.

The following events will be held on the night to celebrate the new exhibitions:
