On Saturday, 31 May, we will open two new exhibitions, The Working Life, and Gary Carsley’s Sciencefictive. Members preview drinks are at 4pm, and the exhibition is open to everyone at 5pm.
Foregrounding film, video and performance, The Working Life borrows its title from a work by Copenhagen-based artist collective Superflex, and features works made since the global financial crisis by eight Australian and international artists. Sciencefictive features a new body of work by Brisbane-born and Sydney-based Gary Carsley.
The IMA is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, the Australian Government through Australia Council for the Arts, and the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian Federal, State, and Territory Governments. The IMA is a member of Contemporary Art Organisations Australia.
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.
