Following on from the success of IMMA's family exhibition Action all Areas last autumn, it has announced a new exhibition opening for families and young people this Saturday 15 February. Here is some more information on the exhibition and related events.
Light Rhythms Exhibition (15 February – 6 April 2014)
Light Rhythms is an exhibition about sound, light and line that is activated by families and young people of all ages. In this exhibition you will encounter artworks to view, alongside artworks and resources that you can interact with to make your own colour and sound installations. You are invited to consider how lines, sound, colour, textures and light influence our experience of space.
Over the course of the exhibition IMMA is running a series of Saturday drop-in workshops called Sound Bites, whereby different artists will add a new interactive element to the exhibition and test it out live with visitors.
This exhibition has been inspired by concurrent and upcoming exhibitions by artists Patrick Scott, Haroon Mirza and the site-specific neon work Line Writing by Vong Phaophanit.
Light Rhythms Events:
Sound Bites – a series of artist interventions (Saturdays, 12.00pm – 4.00pm)
15 February, Fionnuala Conway and Mark Linnane "A rainbow in the palm of my hand" - inspired by the Patrick Scott exhibition, you have a chance to create your own colourful light painting. Considering the different colours, shapes and forms that Patrick uses repeatedly in his work IMMA is inviting visitors to use torches to create their own unique digital image.
