Founded in 2007 as The Irish Museum of Contemporary Art, IMOCA is an artist-led initiative dedicated to advancing education about, awareness and appreciation of, and participation in contemporary, experimental and emerging arts practices. In 2015 IMOCA evolved into the Independent Museum of Contemporary Arts, allowing us to expand our commitment to our education, exhibition and collection platforms in arts centres and related projects in multiple countries.

Our objective is to offer opportunities for artists and audiences to engage with emerging contemporary art practices worldwide, to which they otherwise would not have access, in social environments that encourage exploration and debate.
