13 July to 26 November
Mark Garry / Mairéad McClean / Ciarán Murphy / Yuri Pattison
Hennessy Ireland and IMMA have announced the four artists whose works have been selected to be purchased by the Hennessy Art Fund for IMMA Collection 2017. Works by Mark Garry, Mairéad McClean, Ciarán Murphy and Yuri Pattison have joined the IMMA National Collection of Modern and Contemporary Art for the first time, and are now on exhibition in the Courtyard Galleries at IMMA.
In 2016 Hennessy Ireland formed a unique partnership with IMMA to help fund the purchase of important works by Irish and Irish based artists for the National Collection. Works are sought which show excellence and innovation within contemporary art developments, and which represent a signal moment of achievement with the artist’s practice and capture a moment in time of Irish culture. These four works now join those of Kevin Atherton, David Beattie, Rhona Byrne and Dennis McNulty, selected for the Hennessy Art Fund for IMMA Collection 2016.
