Unfortunately due to the growing COVID-19 outbreak in Melbourne and continuing restrictions in Brisbane, we have decided to postpone opening events for Yhonnie Scarce’s exhibition Missile Park.

Coinciding with the opening of Yhonnie Scarce’s exhibition, join us for the launch of the new publication Missile Park.

The artist Yhonnie Scarce and IMA Executive Director Liz Nowell will share unseen images taken during the development of the exhibition from their trip to Woomera, South Australia—where Scarce was born.

This catalogue, co-published with the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (ACCA), 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.

Registration essential. Capacity is limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. Visiting guests’ attendance are subject to change, pending travel restrictions. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that this exhibition contains images of deceased persons.

COVID safety advice:
—Stay at home if unwell or have a cough, fever, sore throat, fatigue or shortness of breath.
—If you become unwell during the event locate an IMA staff member.
—Maintaining physical distancing is the individual’s responsibility.
