IMA Open Day returns in 2022, presenting a makers market featuring wares from exciting local artisans and collectives, a free artist talk in the IMA galleries, and an IMA publication book launch. 

From 10.00AM–4.00PM, hunt down unique gifts at our makers market across the Judith Wright Arts Centre, IMA Shop, and IMA Courtyard. This year’s makers include Bianca MavrickBugdumb, David Spooner, Hive & HarvestJewellery By Xiao, JMGQ Qld, Practice Studio, Sada Sata, Theresa Darmody,  Vissy Hoffie, and many more! Our new music-loving friends at echo & bounce will have a pop-up record station for your listening pleasure, and a curated selection of records for purchase.

At 1.00PM, Gordon Hookey will give an artist talk on his new commissions in A MURRIALITY, exploring the visual histories of protest [RSVP]. Then at 3.00PM, join us to celebrate Natalya Hughes’ publication The Interior, which follows her recent solo exhibition at the IMA, and explores three interrelated strands in her recent practice which reappraises male modernists (Freud, Kirchner, and de Kooning) and their complex female subjects [RSVP].
