Jacqui Shelton: Enlarge My Coast


21 November 2020

  • Event Cost:

Join Jacqui Shelton via Zoom for her live reading of Enlarge My Coast, an essay commissioned by the IMA for Making Art Work. Following the reading, Shelton will be joined by artist Kinly Grey to discuss the ways writing and reading can be embedded in or parallel to an art practice, touching on the sociality of reading and learning during the pandemic as a way of connecting with others, attempting to think beyond personal experience, and the potential in doing nothing in the context of productivity-obsessed contemporary life.

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.
