Museums Collection at Irish Museum of Modern Art on artrepublic.com
Exhibition running from Apr 01 2008
The Irish Museum of modern Art marks ten years of commitment to exhibiting the finest Irish and International twentieth century art. The celebration takes the form of a mixture of special projects, exhibitions and highlights from the collection to date.
The museum’s expanding collection, like its temporary exhibition programme, includes many masterpieces of Modern Art from Ireland and abroad, with the aim of reflecting “the shifting cultural context of the late twentieth century”. Acquisitions have also included more historical art objects with a particular emphasis on work from the 1940s onwards.
The Gordon Lambert collection, which forms a central part of the museum’s display is a dynamic mixture of paintings, sculpture, graphics and drawings comprising approximately 300 works from the 1960s to the present day and continues to grow.
There are also collections of Irish painting, prints and sculpted paper works, sculpture, installation and “Outsider” art – making this young, expanding museum a must see attraction for any art lover.
