IMMA moving image collections statement
IMMA is home to the National Collection of Modern and Contemporary Art, with over 3,500 artworks by Irish and International artists. The Collection is firmly rooted in the present and important contemporary works are added each year. Our collection of modern art, which has a particular emphasis on work from the 1940s onwards, is regularly enhanced by donation or loan.
Artists’ moving image works have featured extensively in IMMA’s programming history since 1991 and form a key part of the Collection. Recently, many of these works have been digitised from analogue formats such as VHS tape and Laserdisc as part of a large-scale Collection & Programme Digitisation Project funded by the Department of Culture, Heritage & the Gaeltacht. This process preserves the works for the future while also allowing greater access to audiences and researchers. A number of recent programming initiatives highlight the Museum’s holdings of moving image work as a significant national collection of artists’ film and video.
