    LANDMARK UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS AT IMMA

    Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

    Janet Mullarney – Lenience (paesaggio di compassione)

    The Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) is one venue in this country where the focus is on the shock of the new.  At IMMA in 2019 there will be landmark solo exhibitions by Derek Jarman (UK), Doris Salcedo (Columbia), Walker and Walker (Ireland), Kim Gordon  (US) and a show that places Lucian Freud and Jack B. Yeats side by side. Two solo displays by Irish artists Fergus Martin and Janet Mullarney will be presented as part of the IMMA Collection Then and Now series with work from the 1990’s to the present.

    Martin elicits geometric forms that give space to his preoccupations with space, colour, tension and materials through painting, sculpture and photography. The multiplicity of Janet Mullarney’s career will be displayed in a wide ranging body of work which focuses on the importance she places on materials and the meanings they convey in sculpture. An international group exhibition exploring desire in art from the 20th century to the digital age completes a busy series of upcoming events at IMMA.
