IMMA and NCAD are delighted to present an artist talk from internationally renowned artist Wolfgang Tillmans, in advance of his much anticipated IMMA exhibition Rebuilding the Future, opening on 26 October 2018.

This keynote talk from the artist will take in his most recent projects – delving deeper into the socio-political concerns that drives an expanded practice of photography, activism, publishing, performance, music and installation.

Tillmans will be introduced by NCAD Director Sarah Glennie, co-curator of the IMMA exhibition.
