Join artists Dale Harding and Judy Watson, Firesticks Alliance representative Leeton Lee, and panel host Shannon Brett, in the first of a series of three panels expanding on key themes of the exhibition On Fire: Climate and Crisis.
This discussion looks at fire as a colonised entity within Queensland and Australia, the revival of cultural burning practices, their potential application to combat global warming fuelled ecological change, and how art can visualise these themes.
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.
