Event Memo No.1

Memo No.1

Magazine Launch

28 March 2024

Celebrate the launch of the first glossy annual magazine from Memo Review, Naarm/Melbourne’s only platform for weekly art criticism.

Memo No. 1 features an extended artist focus on Archie Moore, Australia’s representative at the 2024 Venice Biennale, with essays by Rex Butler, Tristen Harwood, Tara Heffernan, and Hilary Thurlow. It also features essays and reviews from around Australia and the world: Audrey Schmidt unveils a covetous history of tall-poppy takedowns in the Melbourne art world, Philip Brophy rips into Hollywood’s shallow art-world playbook, Cameron Hurst checks-in with the once-celebrated Spike Magazine cultural critic, Dean Kissick, and more.

Hear from contributing editor Paris Lettau and Queensland contributor Adam Ford, and take home a copy of the incisive publication.



We are committed to making the IMA accessible to people of all abilities, their families, and carers, as well as visitors of different ages and different backgrounds.

The gallery entrance is on the ground floor of the Judith Wright Arts Centre, on Berwick Street. There is wheelchair access and an accessible toilet with baby changing facilities also located on the ground floor, and we welcome guide and support dogs.

If you plan to attend this event and have specific support needs we can accommodate, please contact engagement@ima.org.au, call (07) 3252 5750, or ask our friendly staff on-site. Read our access information for visitors here.
