Shot of Duncan CampbellIMMA  is currently presenting the first major exhibition in Dublin of the work of Irish-born artist Duncan Campbell, who last night won the 2014 Turner Prize, arguably the world’s most prestigious Art prize.

IMMA Director Sarah Glennie, who is also curator of his current major show at IMMA, was delighted with the win saying “Duncan Campbell is an exceptional Irish artist whose work tackles complex questions about society, politics and history with great rigour, subtltey and wit. His compelling films require time from the viewer but time spent is rewarded as his works encourage us to shift our perceptions challenge accepted truths. It’s a hugely deserved win and we are all so pleased for him. We are incredibly proud to be presenting his work at IMMA at the moment, not only his Tuner Prize winning It for Others, but also three other films; Bernadette, about unity candidate MP and socialist activist Bernadette Devlin, Make it New John and Arbeit. This major exhibition is open until March 29th, free of charge, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Duncan in 2016”

Duncan will discuss the exhibition with Dr. Maeve Connolly (Lecturer, IADT) on Saturday 31st Janaury 2015. This is a free event but you must book your tickets in advance as capacity is limited. Book your tickets online here.
