New IMMA shows shine a light on great Scott

Christina Kennedy, curator and head of collections at IMMA

THE Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) has unveiled the first exhibition of their 2014 programme, a retrospective of Cork artist Patrick Scott's work entitled Patrick Scott: Image Space Light.

The exhibition brings together more than 100 pieces that illustrate the breadth and longevity of his career as an architect, designer and artist.

"I think of him as a 'whole artist'," Patrice Molloy of IMMA told the Irish Independent.

The exhibition is split across two venues: IMMA and Carlow arts space VISUAL.

The exhibition at IMMA concentrates on Scott's early works, from the 1940s to the early 70s, while VISUAL displays works from the 1960s to the present.

Ms Molloy described 2014 programme as "exciting and colourful".

An exhibition of Brazilian visual artist Helio Oiticica will be installed during the summer and the museum will run several Mexican festival-themed days for families.

Isabel Nolan will stage a major photographic exhibition, while Cork artist Dorothy Cross will select works from several national collections to display at IMMA.

"There's a great mix of artists and pieces on display this year," Ms Molloy said.
