The Artist As…

22 February 2016

The Artist As… is a year-long lecture series co-presented by the IMA, Brisbane, and Curatorial Practice at MADA (Monash Art Design and Architecture), Melbourne.


The series examines the ways artists move through the world, and how that movement might involve adopting other roles to pursue a project, a position, a politics, or a practice. For any given project the artist may act as architect, as ethnographer, as archivist, as producer, as curator, as activist, as choreographer, and so on. The Artist As… also recognises that many artists come to their practice as experts in other fields, bringing with them specialist knowledge that informs and shapes their work.


The first two lectures in the series take place in March, beginning with Céline Condorelli on ‘The Artist As… Architect‘; followed by Adam Linder on ‘The Artist As… Choreographer’.

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.
