Unfortunately due to the growing COVID-19 outbreak in Melbourne and continuing restrictions in Brisbane, we have decided to postpone opening events for Yhonnie Scarce’s exhibition Missile Park.

On the opening day of Yhonnie Scarce: Missile Park, you’re invited to join the artist and IMA Executive Director Liz Nowell in conversation, followed by opening celebrations at 4pm.

Missile Park draws upon selected works over the past fifteen years of the artist’s practice alongside an ambitious, newly commissioned installation.

Yhonnie Scarce is an artist known for sculptural installations which span architecturally scaled public art projects to intimately scaled assemblages, replete with personal and cultural histories. Scarce is a master glass blower, which she puts to the service of spectacular and spectral installation full of aesthetic, cultural and political significance. Her work also engages the photographic archive and found objects to explore the impact and legacies of colonial and family histories and memory.

Registration essential. Capacity is limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. Visiting guests’ attendance are subject to change, pending travel restrictions. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that this exhibition contains images of deceased persons.

COVID safety advice:
—Stay at home if unwell or have a cough, fever, sore throat, fatigue or shortness of breath.
—If you become unwell during the event locate an IMA staff member.
—Maintaining physical distancing is the individual’s responsibility.

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.
