The Institute of Modern Art (IMA) and its recently appointed Directors, Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh, are delighted to announce the re-launch of its venue on 11 October. The IMA will reopen with an updated premises designed by Berlin-based Studio Miessen, a collaborative agency for spatial strategy and cultural analysis, which will include a new branch of Motto, a worldwide network of stores dedicated to books, magazines, artists’ publications, and editions.

The Directors’ inaugural program features a new body of works by Dublin-based artist Sarah Browne, Hand to Mouth, alongside a survey of New York–based Mierle Laderman Ukeles‘s Maintenance Art Works, which were produced between 1969 and1980. This is the first time that these artists are holding solo exhibitions in Australia. 

Browne’s exhibition departs from the historical relationship between the production of perishable textiles and invisible digital code, while Ukeles’s show explores life’s everyday routines. This is the first survey of her Maintenance Art Works and is curated by Krist Gruijthuijsen, Director of Grazer Kunstverein. In conjunction with Ukeles’s exhibition, the IMA is co-publishing Seven Ballet Works with Kunstverein Amsterdam, Arnolfini, Grazer Kunstverein, and Sternberg Press. 

The IMA is also pleased to announce its new Advisory Committee comprising Maria Lind, Director, Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm; Nikos Papastergiadis, Professor in the School of Culture and Communication, University of Melbourne; and Raqs Media Collective, New Delhi. 

The IMA receives financial assistance from the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland (major sponsor), from the Visual Arts Board of the Australia Council for the Arts (the Federal Government’s arts funding and advisory body), and through 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 (CAOs).

Hand to Mouth is a collaboration between the IMA and CCA Derry~Londonderry and generously supported by Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon, and Culture Ireland/Cultúr Éireann.
