After the settlement of the legal dispute between the art dealer Richard Salmon and Amanda Wilkinson Gallery over Derek Jarman’s more than 80 works, the big retrospective can now be shown at The Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin which opens in November 2019 and is curated by Seán Kissane – except his Black Paintings that are already exhibited in Amanda Wilkinson Gallery. Afterwards this exhibition will be taking place in 2020 in Manchester Art Gallery and is curated by Jon Savage. This is a big opportunity as the curator at IMMA said, because “We don’t know Derek Jarman the painter, but that was his primary practice”.
