We are delighted to present CHROMA, an exciting new exhibition opening today in our Project Spaces. Taking Derek Jarman's 'Chroma - A book of Colour' as a reference, IMMA's new project will explore themes of body relations to colour and space, identity politics, cultural blindness, forced anonymity, and the theatrics of visibility and invisibility. Embracing the self-determination and quest for personal freedom that underlines many LGBTQ personal histories and experiences the project will build new alliances across the queer community, providing a platform for a co-hosted, multi-vocal, open programme of discussions, screenings, workshops and experimental performances.This exhibition explores a prism of protest in various guises, through play, art, music, lecture, dance, film and politics.
Featured projects include 'Club Chroma', a new installation by artist and designer Niall Sweeney of Pony Ltd., who turns the gallery into a glittering stage for celebrating colourful community. And 'Gaze Against Imperialism', a new artist's book project by Padraig Robison.
