Dominique Chen: Making Space
21 October 2023
Artist and researcher Dominique Chen (Gamilaroi) discusses making space for cultural ethics within institutional frameworks, and creative and collective futures.
The IMA strongly encourages mask-wearing onsite in the galleries and for events to keep our community safe. If you are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or are feeling unwell, please stay home.
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 email@example.com, call (07) 3252 5750, or ask our friendly staff on-site. Read our access information for visitors here.
