IMMA is delighted to present Sunset, Sunrise, a retrospective exhibition of works by Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian. With a career spanning more than six decades, Farmanfarmaian is one of the most prominent contemporary Iranian artists working today. “The Irish and the Iranians share a love of poetry in their cultures. My poetry is in my art, and I am honoured to share it in this IMMA exhibition” Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian Farmanfarmaian was born in Qazvin, Iran in 1924. Between 1945 and 1957, she spent her formative years amidst the New York art scene, a time marked by friendships with fellow artists such as Frank Stella and Andy Warhol, before returning to Iran. Exiled following the Iranian Revolution of 1979, Farmanfarmaian returned once again to her native Iran and has been firmly re-established there since 2004. Farmanfarmaian is considered to be one of the most important Iranian artists working today. Sunset, Sunrise reflects a life lived between two cultures, across histories of East and West. It investigates the abundance and mystery of nature, the universe and our place within it. More than seventy artworks are on display ranging from painting, sculpture, jewellery and tapestry to collages and works on paper. There are […]
In 1636 the artist Frans Post (1612–80) travelled to Brazil under the patronage of Governor Johan Maurits of Nassau. At this time, a large area of north-eastern Brazil was a Dutch colony. Post spent seven years drawing the exotic flora and fauna of Brazil. The country continued to inspire him when he returned to the Netherlands in 1644. Recently discovered at the Noord-Hollands Archief in Haarlem, 34 coloured drawings of exotic animals will be complemented by the National Gallery of Ireland’s magnificent, Brazilian Landscape with a Sugar Mill by Post, which depicts a Dutch sugar plantation with alligators, armadillos, anteaters and a monkey in the foreground. Other key works will be shown, including Post’s View of Olinda, Brazil (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam), and Sugar Mill (Atlas Van Stolk, Rotterdam). The exhibition will provide a rare opportunity to view a remarkable group of drawings by a Dutch seventeenth-century artist together with some of his important painted Brazilian views.
Hugh Lane Gallery
Furtive Tears is a project by Niamh McCann that explores the dynamic relationship between the audience, object and mode of display. In her new installation at the Hugh Lane, McCann brings together the protagonists Edward Carson (politician) and Hans Poelzig (architect and set designer) and the vestiges of their mythologies to portray the internal language of gesture, meaning, inference and allegiance. It is an exploration of the importance of a viewer’s perspective when confronted with the act of looking and the reading of objects within the context of a constructed landscape. Weaving fact, fiction and history, the installation reveals how we look and how we are looked upon. The work addresses how the mind navigates the perpetual process of coding and decoding our own behaviours when negotiating the positions we take up in society. Niamh McCann is an Irish artist living and working in Dublin. Recent solo exhibitions include La Perruque (Protest Song) at MAC Belfast and Just Left of Copernicus in Visual Carlow. Group exhibitions include: Future Perfect, Rubicon-Projects Brussels; Changing States: Contemporary Art and Francis Bacon’s Studio, BOZAR, Belgium; Time Out of Mind: Works from the IMMA Collection, Irish Museum of Modern Art; In Other Words, Lewis Glucksman […]

IMMA Collection: Freud Project is a major five-year initiative for IMMA, where fifty-two works by painter Lucian Freud (1922-2011) have been lent to the museum’s Collection by private lenders. During this unique project, IMMA will present a series of Freud-related exhibitions each year. The third exhibition in the series, Gaze, continues to actively explore Freud’s practice by positioning other works from the IMMA Collection alongside selected works by Freud. As the title suggests, the exhibition is concerned with a human gaze; of the artist, the sitter or the viewer of the work. Gaze particularly asks us to examine relationships between the artist and the sitter, and also focuses on the representation of the nude and the oftentimes visceral portrayal of the body in art, particularly in Freud’s work. Unfolding over a series of three floors in the dedicated Freud Centre, the exhibition encourages the visitor to journey from room to room, allowing space for reflection, but always considering who is gazing at whom. At times you are sharing the viewpoint of the sitter, at times the artist, but you are always involved in a constant exchange between all three perspectives in the room; the viewer, artist and sitter Showing alongside […]
Museum of Modern Art
Mary Swanzy (1882-1978) is a unique Irish artist. Her level of achievement, world travel and original thinking is unmatched in Irish art, yet this is the first retrospective of her work in 50 years. Born in the late Victorian era, by her early twenties Swanzy had mastered the academic style of painting. She witnessed the birth of Modern art in Paris before the First World War and her work rapidly evolved through the different styles of the day, each of them interpreted and transformed by her in a highly personal way. In 1920, against the background of violence of the Irish War of Independence, she left Ireland in a form of self-imposed exile. Traveling first through Eastern Europe and the Balkans, she then sailed to Hawaii and Samoa from 1923 to 24 – literally crossing the globe. While there she produced a body of work that is unique in an Irish context with images that show her proto-feminism and critique of the colonial system. Best known for her Cubist and Futurist paintings, after 1914 she exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon des Indépendants and the Beaux Arts, alongside artists who are now household names. By 1946 she was included in […]

Whether you agree with Frank Zappa’s view that “Politics is the entertainment branch of industry”, or lean toward Jay Leno’s less charitable interpretation that “Politics is showbusiness for ugly people”, it’s hard to deny that we live in a time of unprecedented politicisation and polarisation. Politics is the new black, or the new comedy, or perhaps both. The Festival of Politics was founded to reflect this new reality – to offer a platform for the open interrogation of ideas, however left (or right) of field, without fear or favour. Is this new appetite purely oppositional, a kicking against the pricks, or could it be progressive? Are we looking at a paradigm shift or witnessing a nascent movement? This is why The Festival of Politics was created and curated last year by the Temple Bar Company, a non-profit collective of business and cultural groups. Our intention is to entertain and elucidate as we challenge views on the red letter issues that dominate the political landscape and generate the headlines. Our speakers will adress #Metoo; Irexit; Brexit; Housing; the impact of Big Tech, Trumpism, Transhumanism and much more. Our unique events ‘occupy’ spaces that within their very walls, have borne witness to […]

An idea borne out of conversations in a record shop, where else? A common memory of the importance of vinyl in our youth and a belief that it had become relevant again. The look of the cover, the feel of the sleeve, the smell of the record and the purity of the sound.. it was a format worthy of a revival! The Dún Laoghaire Vinyl Festival will bring together international musicians, writers and filmmakers discussing and playing vinyl records and considering their importance in our culture today. The festival will be a collection of talks and discussions relating to all aspects of vinyl recordings from writing, recording, producing and performing as well as examining sleeve design and liner notes. The venues are The Lexicon Library Studio, The National Maritime Museum and the Eblana Club. Other aspects of the music business will be discussed, e.g. the political power of music, the economics of vinyl and why vinyl matters culturally. There will be a record fair on site for the three days

Björn Again was created and founded by Rod Stephen (director and musician) in 1988 in Melbourne, Australia. Seen as a light-hearted satirical parody of ABBA and a brand in its own right, the show rapidly achieved cult status. Rod’s production company based in North London employs top class professional performers having done over 10,000 shows in 70 countries in 25 years. With good wishes from ABBA’s blonde vocalist Agnetha Fältskog the ultimate aim, as always for Rod, is to keep his iconic brand at the top and continue for as long as people want to hear ABBA’s songs performed only the way Björn Again does them. Björn Again.com personnel are comprised from a pool of performers from throughout the Northern Hemisphere who are overseen by Rod who often plays Bass guitar and sings with onstage. Having been acknowledged by Björn Ulvaeus as being the show that single-handedly initiated the ABBA revival in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Björn Again show is hailed as the most popular and successful show of its type.

A much acclaimed recording artist who released his Mercury Prize nominated debut, Here Be Monsters on Heavenly Records in 2001, in recent years his has gained acclaim for his songwriting for a variety of artists. The album, which follows Furnaces, his 2016 album for Polydor, sees Ed Harcourt add another new string to his multi-faceted musical bow. Something of a left-turn after its busy, big-screen, somewhat under-appreciated predecessor, it sees the supremely versatile singer, writer and all-round instrumentalist bravely eschew vocals and lyrics and create a soft-spoken yet emotionally loquacious group of piano-led instrumentals, as if sound-tracking an as yet invisible film, or responding to today’s ferocious shouting match of a planet with a mesmerizing, meditative calm.
