Event 'Haunt' and 'New Eelam: Brisbane'

'Haunt' and 'New Eelam: Brisbane'

Double Opening

13 April 2019
5–8pm

Join us at the IMA for the double opening of a group exhibition, Haunt, and a solo show by Christopher Kulendran ThomasNew Eelam: Brisbane.

The official opening at 6pm will be preceded by a curator’s floor talk with Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh at 5pm.

The artists in HauntZanny Begg, Heman Chong, Fiona Connor, Megan Cope, Brian Jungen and Duane Linklater, Joar Nango, Christian Nyampeta, and Amie Siegel—present works focusing on the conceptions, creations, developments, and experiences of home as they are affected by colonialism, urban development, and gentrification.

New Eelam is a long-term artwork in the form of a start-up—a real estate technology company founded by artist Christopher Kulendran Thomas to develop a flexible global housing subscription based on collective co-ownership rather than individually owned private property. Sitting like a new development in a rapidly changing neighbourhood, New Eelam: Brisbane presents a sci-fi vision of an alternate reality. New Eelam: Brisbane has been integrated locally through partnerships with landscape designer Pete Shields and ceramic artist Tim Wilson (Hunchmark).

Haunt and New Eelam: Brisbane are curated by Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh, and assisted by Llewellyn Millhouse.
