Net Positive: Sins Invalid

Online Lecture


Net Positive: What does a better art institution look like? is a lecture series asking exciting art-world thinkers to assess the value of ‘the art institution’: its opportunities, its limits, and to ask if it is a system that can be exploited for the good of all. Can the institution be made to work better, for more people—or do we need some other structure in its place?

Presented online, Net Positive asks speakers to propose alternative visions for art institutions that more closely reflect the publics they are designed to serve.

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.
