Amalia Pica: please open hurry

The second chapter of Amalia Pica’s two-part exhibition features newly commissioned works, supported by the Keir Foundation and developed by Pica on a residency at Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, Colorado, USA, in 2017, where the artist deepened her understanding of interspecies communication. Pica worked with leading primatologists to expand her knowledge of chimpanzee language capacities and what meaning might be shared between humans and their distant relatives. The artist’s first Australian solo show will travel to the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art in August 2018.

Goldin+Senneby: Standard Length of a Miracle (The Bootleg)

For the past ten years, Goldin+Senneby has used methods and tools inspired by the financial sector to illuminate and subvert our late-capitalist system. The IMA is pleased to present the second iteration of their mutating retrospective, Standard Length of a Miracle, which premiered at Tensta konsthall, Stockholm, and the IMA last year. Responding to Camila Marambio and Amaara Raheem’s Meth(odology) Lab, Goldin+Senneby has created a new sensorial environment, which sets the stage for a magic demonstration, Acid Money, performed by Malin Nilsson.

Please register your attendance via Eventbrite here. 

Amalia Pica’s please open hurry has been developed in partnership with The Power Plant, Toronto, and Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, with the generous support of the Keir Foundation.

Goldin+Senneby’s exhibition at the IMA is supported by Iaspis–the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Programme for Visual and Applied Artists.
