SHOOSH! The History of the Campfire Group harnesses the stories and ideas of so many people. This publication attempts to cover many of Campfire’s innovations and experiments, the odd political struggle, its creative idealism and artistic opportunism. It embraces numerous places and tales, the shared experiences of dozens of artists and scores of other fold who are too numerous to mention.
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.
