IMA at Surfers

8 October–6 November 20118 Oct–6 Nov 2011

Self-proclaimed ‘dumpster diva’, Sydney’s Justene Williams gets about in costumes fashioned from trash, then presents videos of her frantic performances on stacks of old TV monitors. Hysterical feminism, neo-dada, or ritualistic recycling? All of the above.

The Institute of Modern Art acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which the IMA now stands, the Jagera, Yuggera, Yugarapul, and Turrbal people. We offer our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first artists of this country. In the spirit of allyship, the IMA will continue to work with First Nations people to celebrate, support, and present their immense past, present, and future contribution to artistic practice and cultural expression.
