The IMA’s fortieth anniversary gala was a memorable celebration of contemporary art in Australia, where luminary figures Dr Robert MacPherson and Dr Nancy Underhill were honoured. This sold-out event was held on Thursday 23 July 2015.
Since 1975, the IMA has been one of Australia's most vibrant non-collecting galleries, supporting over 2000 artists through more than 500 exhibitions. Works by leading national and international artists were auctioned through Paddle8.
We are thrilled to announce that the gala and auction raised over $80,000. These vital funds will support the IMA’s programs, including the commissioning of new artworks. Thanks to everyone who made the event a tremendous success!
