Event Maria Lind: Six Moves Towards a Methodology

Maria Lind: Six Moves Towards a Methodology


24 March 2024

Renowned Swedish curator Maria Lind will talk about her professional trajectory, and how her context-sensitive curatorial methodology—involving self institutionalisation, displacement, art-centricity, embeddedness, pervasive eclecticism, and proximity—developed along the way. After the talk, please join us for a reception.



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.
