Irish Museum of Modern Art: Out of the Dark Room

The Irish Times reported today that IMMA has built its collection very successfully on the basis of loans, gifts and bequests, and an exciting initiative this year is inaugurated by an exhibition in July.

Out of the Dark Room features 140 photographs from the very fine David Kronn Collection in New York, which extends back to 19th century daguerreotypes right up to contemporary works. Kronn intends to gift his entire collection to IMMA, with an annual bequest of a number of works each year, starting with Annie Leibovitz’s portrait of the sculptor Louise Bourgeois.

The project is a huge boost for IMMA's holding of photography.
