The new ArtDaily

DUBLIN, IRELAND.- The Irish Museum of Modern Art announced the launch of its new website. The new website launches a new web strategy which will take IMMA into the digital age by opening a virtual extension of the museum in cyberspace. In addition to containing information on the museum, it's building and collections we will be actively curating new exhibitions which will exist only in cyberspace. These will include surveys of the most exciting new artists who are likely to become household names in the future and virtual exhibitions of digital art by Irish and International artists. In a new initiative for IMMA we will shortly be commissioning digital artworks which will exist only in cyberspace for ' THE DIGITAL HUB ' our new digital art zone. With this new venture IMMA will join an elite group of International museums commissioning in this new medium which includes MOMA New York, SFMOMA, San Francisco and The Guggenheim Museum.

ArtDaily would like to invite you to fill out our online survey
