The Green Room

29 June 2015

The Green Room is a new dedicated space at the IMA for projects with a connection to our region. The Green Room is not unlike its namesake at a theater or television station, where contributors meet before and after the event to engage in discussions that often differ from those in the limelight. These moments “just before” and “right after” provide a space for less scripted meetings and experiences.

The inaugural program will feature a solo exhibition by emerging Brisbane artist Dale Harding followed by a show by established Melbourne artist Juan Davila. Artists shortlisted for the Jeremy Hynes Award will present their works at the end of the year. There will also be live music events organised by Room 40’s MONO and Liquid Architecture, along with talks, screenings, and performances.

The Green Room runs in parallel and relation to our exhibitions program, providing crucial space for extemporaneous encounters.

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.
