‘PROTEST!’, a major retrospective of the work of acclaimed British artist and filmmaker Derek Jarman (1942-1994), is on at IMMA, marking 25 years since the artist’s death. While addressing Jarman’s important contribution to film, this exhibition will focus on his wider practice as a painter, writer, set-designer, gardener and political activist. This is the first time that these diverse strands of his practice have been brought together in over 20 years. These works capture Jarman’s engagement with both art and society, as well as his contemporary concerns with political protest and personal freedoms arising from the Aids crisis.
