IMA Talks

27 June 2019
7–8pm

Join artist Sebastian Moody as he discusses his practice and newly-commissioned temporary public artwork, Seeing.

Moody’s work is the inaugural IMA Belltower Façade Projection, visible after dark on the façade of the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts. Somewhere between a list and poem, Seeing is comprised entirely of six letter words intended to create moments of contemplation on Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley.

Moody will be joined by his collaborator, designer Sai Karlen, who will discuss the process of working together to animate and bring to life this kinetic typography projection.

Don’t miss your chance to hear about Moody’s practice, which often engages with busy urban environments, as well as the technical process of this unique collaboration.

  • Partner:

    IMA Belltower at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.

What Can Art...?

With Marysia Lewandowska

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.
