'An Alternative Economics' & Jenn Nkiru: 'REBIRTH IS NECESSARY'

13 May 2022
6-8pm

You’re invited to the opening of two new exhibitions at the IMA; group exhibition An Alternative Economics and Jenn Nkiru’s REBIRTH IS NECESSARY.

An Alternative Economics

Five Mile Radius
Gunybi GanambarrWanda GillespieKatie PatersonMake or BreakKeg de Souza, and Shevaun Wright. Curated by Tulleah Pearce.
An Alternative Economics 
brings together a group of Australian and international artists who each use their artmaking to explore and expand on the creation of value. Guided by the idea of the circular economy and its compelling counter-narrative to the untenable model of eternal growth, each work in this exhibition offers a provocation to make us reconsider what is ‘counted’ in our society and why.

Jenn Nkiru
REBIRTH IS NECESSARY
Award-winning artist and director Jenn Nkiru’s first solo exhibition in Australia. This exhibition explores the magic and dynamism of Blackness in a realm where time and space are altered. The now, the past, and the future are rethought and reordered to create something soulful and mind-bendingly visceral.
