The solo exhibition, "When We", by artist Andrea Geyer is the first time her work will be shown in Ireland. "When We" features several recent works by Geyer as well as new work commissioned by IMMA for the exhibition.
The focus is set on Andrea Geyer’s current body of work – an investigation into the formation of modern art, its institutions and their histories. Featuring performance, text, photography, installation, sculpture and video, the exhibition unfolds as a series of salons, each with its own mood. Raising questions around identity, community, representation, and visibility within museums, Geyer seeks to champion art as a fundamental necessity and proposes alternative possibilities within our contemporary lives.
The exhibition "When We" at IMMA will open on 31 May 2018 with a performative lecture by Andrea Geyer.
About the Artist
Andrea Geyer was born in 1971 in Freiburg/Germany. She lives and works in NYC. Her work has been exhibited widely at institutions around the world.
As part of a programme of live events, screenings, talks and lectures that will accompany the exhibition, IMMA has invited the Berlin-based American artist, film-maker and archivist Jessica Lauren Elizabeth Taylor to present "Witness", a three-week project running 1 – 22 September 2018. "Witness" focuses on creating a space for discussions on racism, and features a screening of Taylor’s film "Muttererde" (2017), and a series of salons and workshops.
Exhibition supported by the Goethe-Institut Irland.
