Annual Party

15 December 2023

Celebrate the end of another year filled with contemporary art! Join us in the galleries for our Annual Party, featuring performances from The Ancient Bloods, Dolphin Milk, and DJ Maggitron. Don’t miss your last chance to see Daniel Boyd: Rainbow Serpent (Version) and Laresa Kosloff: Capital.

Guest Info
  • The Ancient Bloods are a Meanjin/Brisbane-based band with an ever-changing line up of musicians. Their music projects are presented as a part of leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts organisation, Digi Youth Arts. Their current iteration is made up of Gaz Doolah, Gill McInnes, Emelia Stacy, and Shaieisha Towler. Each Ancient Bloods’ song and album adds to an anthology that responds to political issues, cultural heritage, and identity.

    Part-performance art, part-punk outfit, Dolphin Milk is a collaboration between artists Sarah Lewis and Grace Dewar, based in the Mibiny language region/Gold Coast and Widjabul Wia-bal/Lismore. They use experimental sound, performance, installation and friendship to engage with the savagely benign. Their collaborative projects assemble and reassemble everyday, contemporary culture as a way to understand and misunderstand their surroundings.

    Maggitron is a Meanjin/Brisbane-based DJ who is a fixture on the local dance floors. Sharing music from the club to the 4ZZZ airwaves, Maggitron’s blends are booty-bumping, ass-shaking and unmistakably hot.

Fourth Annual Gala

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.
