In this talk, Sydney-based independent curator and guest judge for ‘the churchie’ Sebastian Goldspink details the realisation of his most recent project, the 2022 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Free/State for the Art Gallery of South Australia. Goldspink unpacks the journey of a biennial from ideation to realisation. The 2022 Adelaide Biennial featured 25 prominent Australian artists from every state and territory across multiple generations from emerging to established.
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.
