Event Frontier Imaginaries Edition Nº1

Frontier Imaginaries Edition Nº1

Publication Launch

13 August 2016

  • Event Cost:

Join us at QUT Art Museum on Saturday 13 August to launch the first Frontier Imaginaries publication on the final weekend of the show. Frontier Imaginaries Ed Nº1 offers a chance to reflect upon how, why, and with what tools locally-focused projects can meaningfully connect across vastly separate geographies. Are publications valuable means of transmitting the specific work of an exhibition across time and space? Do more recent communications technologies offer more useful tools? From the art-making perspective, what can be learned and contributed to the approaches of current social movements that strive to effect local change within systems of globalised power relations?

Following the success of the Artist Assemblies at the openings of Frontier Imaginaries at the IMA and QUT Art Museum, this Publications Assembly will invite contributions from artists, curators, art historians, and leading figures from within local social movements for a public dialogue that foreshadows the next phase of the project at Jerusalem Show VIII, held at the invitation of Al Ma’mal Foundation for Contemporary Art and as part of Qalandiya International 2016.

Moderated by Vivian Ziherl (IMA Curatorial Fellow 2015, QUT Visual Art Alumni), with Amelia Barikin (Art History, University of Queensland), Amanda Cahill (Centre for Social Change), Léuli Eshraghi (PhD Candidate, Monash University), Dale Harding (artist), and Pekeri Ruska (WAR, The Black Rising).

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.
