Pictiúr at IMMA

Pictiúr is a touring exhibition of 21 of Ireland’s leading children’s book illustrators. Co-curated by IMMA’s Education and Community department and Laureate na nÓg, Niamh Sharkey, the exhibition comprises 42 art pieces, including illustrations from books written in English and Irish. Alongside the artwork will be a selection of videos exploring the world and practice of many of the illustrators, supplementary material such as sketchbooks and 3-dimensional works. Pictiúr will be complimented by a family friendly reading area for those who want to enjoy the featured books.
