Bringing Irish and International practices together, the IMMA residency programme aims to generate a fresh creative space for participants at a crucial point in their career – whether emerging or established art professionals. The Residency provides access to the museum’s audience and resources, and allows for participants to leave IMMA with expanded possibilities, new networks and work.
Residents are welcomed to propose the dissemination of their art practice through various contexts that come to light during time spent at IMMA.
Participate in the Residency Programme work in a designated studio spaces, and receive separate complementary accommodation in either a communal house, or in one of our three self-contained apartments, all of which are located on site.
IMMA’s residency provides opportunities for national and international artists, curators, critical writers and art professionals to research and develop their practices onsite at the Museum.
The programme is housed and mentored onsite at IMMA, presenting a symbiotic relationship with the museum and its activities. The residency supports the development of contemporary visual art practices, research and dialogue. It supports both emerging and established practitioners, working in a variety of formats, and is programmed through open and invited strands of programming.
IMMA’s Collection, Exhibitions and Engagement & Learning Programmes, fellow residents, the historical location at The Royal Hospital Kilmainham and IMMA’s proximity to the vibrant cultural city of Dublin, all provide a dynamic starting point for participants to push the boundaries of studio practices and new avenues of visual arts research.
