As part of The Subtropic Complex, the IMA is pleased to present Showtime, a new work by Clark Beaumont, the Meanjin/Brisbane collaborative duo Sarah Clark and Nicole Beaumont. This participatory performance aims to instrumentalise the role of the audience. Join us at the IMA for drinks and to participate in their new work.

Clark Beaumont is the Meanjin/Brisbane-based collaborative duo Nicole Beaumont and Sarah Clark. Through live and mediated performance works, they investigate ideas about identity, female subjectivity, intimacy, and interpersonal relationships. Their collaboration means exploring the social and physical dynamics of working together. They are the subjects of their work. 

Clark Beaumont formed in 2010. Since beginning their collaboration, they have presented live performances, videos, and installations nationally and internationally. In 2013, they were the thirteenth artist added to the 13 Rooms exhibition in Sydney, curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Klaus Biesenbach. This year they were selected as a finalist for The Churchie Emerging Art Prize, received Queensland Art Gallery’s Melville Haysom Memorial Art Scholarship, and had a solo show at Sydney’s Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery.

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.
