    Sarah Glennie is to leave the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) to take up a new position of Director of the NCAD (National College of Art and Design).  Glennie took up the post of Director of IMMA in 2012 and has overseen exhibitions by artists including Nan Goldin, Lucian Freud, Etel Adnan, Stan Douglas, Karla Black, Hito Steyerl and Helio Oiticia. She will begin her new directorship in January 2018.

    Irish Culture Minister Heather Humphreys thanked Glennie for years of service and said: “IMMA is in a very strong place as a result of her directorship, with significantly increased visitor numbers, greater opportunities for Irish artists, a strong international reputation.”

    Sarah Glennie said: “While I am very sad to be leaving IMMA I am excited by the great opportunity to contribute further to the development of creativity in Ireland as the director of such a significant institution as NCAD which is in a unique position to inspire and nurture creative talent in Ireland”. The search for a new director at the IMMA will begin in the coming weeks.
