Imaginary Accord Publication Launch

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the latest IMA publication: Imaginary Accord. Join us to celebrate on Saturday 6 May, 6pm, alongside the double opening of Céline Condorelli and Material Politics.

Imaginary Accord both documents and reinvigorates the fortieth anniversary activities of the IMA, Australia’s oldest independent public gallery. Bringing together the findings of a year of inquiry, this publication includes new contributions that sit aside talks originally presented at the IMA as part of a nine-part lecture series and two-day symposium, What Can Art Institutions Do?, which have been reformulated for this volume.

Contributions by Agency, Vernon Ah Kee, Anne Barlow, Sean Dockray, Charles Esche, Helen Hughes, Marysia Lewandowska, Maria Lind, Ian McLean, Courtney Pedersen, Terry Smith, and Ann Stephen. Artists featured are Agency, Vernon Ah Kee, Gerry Bibby (with Janet Burchill and Jennifer McCamley), Zach Blas, Ruth Buchanan, Peter Cripps, Céline Condorelli, Sean Dockray, Goldin+Senneby, Marysia Lewandowska, Ross Manning, Raqs Media Collective, and Hito Steyerl.

Edited by Aileen Burns, Madeleine King, and Johan Lundh. Published by the Institute of Modern Art.

Imaginary Accord is supported by Australia Council for the Arts, Gordon Darling Foundation, and Brisbane City Council.
