IMMA ARP Studios


The Artists’ Residency Programme (ARP) at the Irish Museum of Modern Art provides work and accommodation facilities onsite at the Museum for visiting art professionals. The ARP supports opportunities for the research and development of artistic practices and aims to provide the best possible context for this to happen within. It supports both emerging and established professionals, working in any medium, by application or invitation, and is open to Irish and international applicants.

During the refurbishment of the main building at the Irish Museum of Modern Art the ARP is working in association with studios from around Ireland to offer Irish based artists the opportunity to occupy a studio for four months during the partial closure of IMMA. From October 2012 until June 2013 eight artists were selected through a nomination strand of programming with associated national studios. There are four artists in the studios from March to June, they are: Michelle Browne, nominated by Temple Bar Gallery + Studios; Janine Davidson, nominated by Black Church Print Studios; Ramon Kassam and Joan Stack both nominated by Wickham Street Studios, Limerick.

The ARP is a unique programme immersed in the urban context of contemporary Irish culture. Situated on site at the Irish Museum of Modern Art and on the historical grounds of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham; its prime location offers a natural catalyst for creativity and dialogue. IMMA's Collection, Exhibitions, Education and Community Programmes, National Programme, Talks and Lectures, and 17th-century architecture and grounds all provide a dynamic starting point for participants to expand and explore their studio practices. The ARP has hosted more than 250 national and international artists since it commenced in 1995.
