As part of the celebrations marking the Irish Museum of Modern Art’s 20th anniversary, Twenty, an exhibition featuring twenty artists, opened to the public on the 28th of May. The exhibition presents a younger generation of Irish artists whose work is seen increasingly on the international stage.The show includes installations, photography, painting and sculpture, and featured are artworks from IMMA’s Collection by Orla Barry, Stephen Brandes, Nina Canell, Fergus Feehily, Patrick M FitzGerald, John Gerrard, David Godbold, Katie Holten, Paddy Jolley, Nevan Lahart, Niamh McCann, Willie McKeown, Perry Ogden, Liam O'Callaghan, Niamh O'Malley, Alan Phelan, Garrett Phelan, Eva Rothschild and Corban Walker. The exhibition also features a borrowed piece by Irish artist Sean Lynch. We visited the museum last month to check out the exhibition and have coffee in the museum cafe (charming if pricey!). Highlights of the show included David Godbold's witty drawings and Stephen Brandes work on Linoleum. Definitely worth checking's on till 31st of October.,%20
