In Conversation

On the opening day of Khadim Ali: Invisible Border, you’re invited to join the artist and IMA Executive Director Liz Nowell in conversation, followed by opening celebrations.

Invisible Border is Khadim Ali’s largest Australian solo exhibition to date, comprising sound installation, miniature painting, and intricately constructed textiles. Ali’s masterful works poetically explore the experience of displaced people across the globe.

Don’t miss your chance to hear the artist speak and see his existing work alongside newly commissioned work—including a major body of work developed in partnership with the Lahore Biennale Foundation.

Registration essential. Capacity is limited due to COVID-19 restrictions and masks must be worn by attendees.

COVID safety advice:

—If you become unwell during the event locate an IMA staff member.
—Maintaining physical distancing is the individual’s responsibility.
