ENGLISH:

 

The Irish Museum of Modern Art also known as IMMA, is Ireland's leading national institution for the collection and presentation of modern and contemporary art. Located in Kilmainham, Dublin, the Museum presents a wide variety of art in a changing programme of exhibitions, which regularly includes bodies of work from its own collection and its education and community department. It also aims to create more widespread access to art and artists through its studio and national programmes.

 

The Museum’s mission is to foster within society an awareness, understanding and involvement in the visual arts through policies and programmes which are excellent, innovative and inclusive.

 

The Irish Museum of Modern Art was established by the Government of Ireland in 1990. It was officially opened on 25 May 1991 by Taoiseach Charles J Haughey.

 

The Irish Museum of Modern Art is housed in the 17th-century Royal Hospital Kilmainham. The Royal Hospital was founded in 1684 by James Butler, the Duke of Ormonde and Viceroy to Charles II, as a home for retired soldiers and continued in that use for almost 250 years. The Royal Hospital is a striking location for displaying modern art. Modelled on Les Invalides in Paris, it is arranged around a courtyard and the interior has long corridors running along series of modest interlocking rooms. The original stables have been restored, extended and converted into artists' studios, and the museum runs an artist-in-residence programme.

 

The Museum is a company limited by guarantee and not having a share capital. The company is funded by grant-in-aid through the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and by sponsorship, franchise and own resource income.

ESPAÑOL:

 

El Irish Museum of Modern Art (Museo Irlandés de Arte Moderno), también conocido como IMMA, abrió en mayo de 1991 y es la institución nacional líder en exhibiciones y colecciones de arte moderno y contemporáneo. Está ubicado en el Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, un refinado edificio del Siglo XVII cerca de la Estación Heuston al oeste del centro de Dublín.

 

El Museo se concentra en adquirir arte contemporáneo de artistas vivientes y compra sólo de los mercados primarios: estudios y galerías. También acepta donaciones de arte que daten de 1940 en adelante y a través de algunos generosos regalos ha progresado hacia una colección representativa de ese periodo. Dada su juventud el museo tiene una colección razonable y monta exhibiciones selectas de su propia colección. Se concentra en albergar exhibiciones y tiene un programa de exhibición bastante activo como es demostrado por el ejemplo del programa de exhibiciones del 2003 presentado abajo. Se espera que en el futuro al Museo le sea provisto más espacio, permitiendo que su actividad actual se complemente por una presentación enciclopédica permanente de arte contemporáneo.

 

El Royal Hospital es una impactante ubicación para mostrar arte moderno. Diseñado según el edificio de Los Inválidos en París, está dispuesto alrededor de un patio y el interior tiene largos corredores y a sus lados corren una serie de modestos cuartos interconectados. Esto ha hecho a algunas exhibiciones más interesantes y visualmente excitantes, pero el museo está limitado en su capacidad para albergar grandes obras de arte. Otra desventaja es que es difícil el mover obras alrededor. Sin embargo, en su favor, el trazado permite que varias exhibiciones corran concurrentemente y el diseño es bastante refinado: el patio, nobles fachadas, un jardín formal barroco restaurado y un hermoso salón de banquetes y capilla. El salón de banquetes genera ingresos como sede de bodas y cenas de conferencias, así como el café y la librería; el Museo en sí mismo es gratis.

 

Los establos originales del Royal Hospital ha sido restaurado, extendido y convertido en estudios de artistas y el Museo tiene un programa de artistas en residencia. El Museo también tiene programas de comunidad y educación y un programa nacional mediante el cual exhibe trabajos de su colección en otras sedes.

The ruins of the Hell Fire Club on the summit of Montpelier Hill in the foothills of the Dublin Mountains are a well known landmark in south Dublin.

A network of paths allow visitors to explore the woods on the site of the former Massy Estate. A fine mansion and gardens once stood here and it has since been laid out as a forest walk. The Nature Trail followed in this section of the trip passes many fine examples of European, American and Asian tree species as it makes a circuit roughly following the path of the Owendoher River, which runs through the grounds. There are also numerous points of historical importance, including a ruined Bronze Age tomb, an icehouse and the remains of the fine formal gardens that once stood here.

 

The forest around Montpelier Hill offers several kilometers of trails. The Montpelier Loop Trail followed in this route makes a circuit around the hill - where fine views can be enjoyed over the mountains to the south west and over Dublin city and bay - before making the final climb to the site of the notorious Hell Fire Club

A modern building with attractive decor, balls are strong green in colour,near Grand Canal Dock in Dublin. Holga image note how its twisted the wall on the right, love this in the Holga. I had this building down as a colour image but looks ok in mono, film was HP5 in Rodinal.

Phoenix Park Dublin Sept 2013 just beyond the Wellington monument, A Holga image on Ilford HP5 and ID11, processed this one in Lightroom and liked the soft effect I got, I then took it into the darkroom and tried to replicate the process with the wet process, came quite close using Ilford warmtone fibre and warmtone developer followed by a splash of dark brown sepia toner. I used a soft focus filter under the lens to try get the soft effect.

The Gothic Revival design from Belfast-based firm, Lanyon, Lynn and Lanyon was selected in an archi- tectural competition for the church contract. Charles Lanyon was the civil engineer and William Henry Lynn was the architect. Lynn also designed St. Andrew’s Church (Church of Ireland) in Andrew Street in Dublin and one of his major works in Belfast was Queen’s University. In March 1862 the Dublin Builder journal recorded “Messrs Hammond of Drogheda and Dublin have been declared contractors. The expenditure will be about £5,000.00”.
