The Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) is situated in Dublin’s Royal Hospital Kilmainham, itself a fine example of 17th century architecture. The artistic displays are complimented by the museum’s well-sculpted gardens and verdant lawns, with a wholesale restoration of the premises having taken place during the 1980s. A few years after the hospital building was brought back to glory, the decision was taken for this ideal structure to host some of the finest modern art in the world.
Having been the epicentre of Dublin’s modern and postmodern artistic display for well over two decades, the Irish Museum of Modern Art offers those interested in perusing the representative installations and wall-mounted works a serene, whitewashed environment in which to contemplate these creations. The yearly exhibitions concerning famed figures in modernist art keep the museum’s galleries in a state of constant refresh.
