The IMA has a longstanding commitment to research and a rich history of publishing critical readers, exhibition catalogues, and artist monographs. We publish between three and five volumes a year, most of them in tandem with our exhibition program. Recent publications has been co-published with Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne; The Power Institute, The University of Sydney; and Sternberg Press, Berlin.
Between 2007 and 2013, the IMA co-published the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Art, together with the Art Association of Australia and New Zealand, Australasia's professional organisation for art historians.
