McWilliam Gallery & Studio and Highlanes Gallery, Parallel Visions has taken as its starting point a vision for presenting modernist and contemporary sculpture and installation from IMMA’s Collection in two parallel sites.
Across the two galleries, works by 28 artists, Irish and international, have been selected, covering a period from the 1930's to 2009.
The scope of the exhibition allows the audience a unique insight into how concepts and materials have been used and informed artistic practice in relation to contemporary sculpture and installation.
