A Fair Land began with IMMA taking the unique step of inviting Grizedale Arts, an international commissioning and residency agency, to take up residence in IMMA’s owfrom March 2016. Whilst in residence Grizedale Arts, in collaboration with IMMA, invited a range of artists and creative practitioners from Ireland and beyond to use the residency as a base to research and develop a major activated project for our 17th century courtyard which is at the heart of our building.

A reflection of pre-1916 Ireland, A Fair Land reveals a vision for society informed, and led by creativity and
artistic practice – whether through a Ruskinian reconsideration of industry, a vision for education or culture as a mechanism for politicalactivism – where the creative voice was central to new visions for modern society emerging in Ireland and internationally.
