Shift: Critical Strategies conference, held in Brisbane over two days in April 1992, was drawn together a number of critics, art historians, artists and cultural theorists to address this change, to discuss the problems involved in art criticism today, and to project future tendencies and trends. This conference was intended to debate the very notion of criticism, its role, its function, its limits, as well as its relation to art practice, theory and postmodernity.
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.
