Wolfgang Tillmans (b. 1968, Remscheid, Germany) is one of the most accomplished and widely celebrated artists working today, recognised for major contributions to the development of contemporary photography in terms of subject matter, production, scale, presentation and methodology. His IMMA exhibition Rebuilding the Future, is a significant survey featuring over 100 works and captures his unique way of working. This new exhibition mixes works from throughout his career and in numerous formats, installed in IMMA’s galleries in direct relation to the physical spaces and atmosphere of the museum.

Assistant Curator Benjamin Stafford worked closely with Tillmans and his studio team on the realisation of this exhibition, and this event is a wonderful opportunity to hear from Benjamin as he leads a walkthrough of each room, and discusses the themes & motivations behind the installation.

Tillmans’ relationship with IMMA began over 20 years ago, when he first exhibited work at the museum in 1997 as part of a group exhibition of young emerging artists Projects and more recently in 2015 in the popular exhibition What We Call Love: From Surrealism to Now. This exhibition follows his critically acclaimed solo show in  Tate Modern London in 2017.
