IMMA is delighted to celebrate Culture Night with the opening of two major exhibitions, Obedience and Defiance is a major retrospective exhibition by the renowned Portuguese artist Paula Rego; and Ghosts from the Recent Past an exhibition of over 80 artworks from the IMMA Collection, introducing works from the major donation of the Kerlin Gallery Collection to IMMA in 2018; alongside a day long programme of Culture Night events.
For Culture Night we are taking a blended approach offering online and physical events. Visitors to IMMA can see the newly opened exhibitions for free throughout the day, a new site-specific work Club Chroma Chlorologia by Niall Sweeney, as well as a live workshop, Embodiment and Mark Making and a walking tour on the biodiversity of IMMA.
The online programme begins with an Armchair Azure, a dementia-inclusive live Azure tour via Zoom available to people living with dementia, their families, friends and carers. This is followed by the launch of the fifth film work to be presented as part of IMMA Screen, Helen Cammock’s The Long Note, 2018. From 4pm join us for virtual walking tours on the biodiversity of the IMMA gardens and the hidden history of the RHK broadcast on our website; a family art workshop for you to do at home; a cookery demonstration with Peaches Kemp and lots more.
At 6pm our Director Annie Fletcher will broadcast the launch of Culture Night and celebrate the opening of our new exhibitions. For those who do not have the chance to see the exhibitions in person, our team will be presenting a selection of the works online.
