IMA Belltower Call Out

Early-career Queensland artists are invited to submit proposals for IMA Belltower at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts. There are two opportunities:

  1. Exhibition as part of IMA Belltower
  2. Artwork projection on the façade of the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts

Applicants are invited to apply for either one or both of these opportunities. You are welcome to propose existing or new works.

Artists who currently reside in Queensland are able to apply. Artist duos and collectives are also welcome, and the exhibition outcome may include more than one artist, depending on the submissions and the selection committee’s decision. Applications will be assessed by an IMA selection committee and will consider the timeframes and resources available.

Successful applicants will be paid an artist fee and provided some support with materials and equipment. Curatorial and technical guidance will be provided by the IMA team.

IMA Belltower at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts and the IMA are supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.

Key Dates
  • Applications close: 31 July 2019 (midnight)
  • Selected artists notified: 16 August 2019
  • Exhibition/artwork projection period: November 2019–Jan 2020

IMA Belltower at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts is dedicated to Queensland contemporary art, exploring place and belonging.

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.
