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.

Join us for the opening of Yhonnie Scarce: Missile Park. Featuring a major new commission and drawing upon existing works over the past fifteen years, the IMA and the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne, have collaborated to present a major survey exhibition of leading contemporary artist Yhonnie Scarce.

Throughout the opening day hear from the artist and curators before joining us for the official opening celebrations from 4pm.

Opening Day Events:
1.45pm: Missile Park Book Launch
2.30pm: Yhonnie Scarce, Liz Nowell, Max Delany, and Lisa Waup in conversation
4–6pm: Official Opening

Yhonnie Scarce is known for her 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.

Capacity is limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. Registrations are essential. 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.
