The IMA is pleased to present Brisbane-based artist and musician Ross Manning’s first-ever survey exhibition, Dissonant Rhythms. Best known for his use of everyday materials, Manning’s major exhibition features sculptures that repurpose ceiling fans, fluorescent tubes, and overhead projectors, creating exquisite interplays of light and sound.

In what is a transformative opportunity for a local artist, the four-gallery exhibition will be complemented by the publication of his first monograph published by the IMA, accompanied by a vinyl LP, released by IMA and Room40.

The exhibition is curated by IMA’s Directors, Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh, and Senior Manager, Madeleine King. The publication, Dissonant Rhythms, is edited by Madeleine King, and features contributions by Ellie Buttrose, Caleb Kelly, and Danni Zuvela.

The Ross Manning: Dissonant Rhythms exhibition, publication, LP, and tour is supported by the Australia Council for the Arts and the IMA’s Commissioner’s Circle. Manning is represented by Milani 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.
