Online Book Launch

18 August 2021
7–8pm

Join us for a digital road trip to celebrate the Missile Park publication, which documents Yhonnie Scarce’s survey exhibition of the same name currently on view at the IMA. The artist will be joined by two of the exhibition co-curators, Lisa Waup and IMA Director Liz Nowell, to present and discuss a series of images that document their research trip to Woomera during the development of the exhibition.

The catalogue includes a foreword by ACCA’s Artistic Director and CEO Max Delany and IMA Executive Director, Liz Nowell; a pictorial essay by Yhonnie Scarce; a curatorial essay by Lisa Waup, Max Delany and Liz Nowell; alongside newly commissioned essays by Daniel Browning, Hannah Presley and Lisa Waup; a new poem by Natalie Harkin; and a special reprint of a text by Louis Anderson Mokak.

This exhibition and publication have been produced in collaboration with ACCA, and supported by the Gordon Darling Foundation.

Artist talk and book launch

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.
