Institute of Modern Art

Since 1975, the Institute of Modern Art (IMA) has been Queensland’s leading independent forum for art and its discourses. Our innovative and diverse programs embed the international in the local and engage the local internationally.

The IMA has museum grade, climate controlled gallery spaces in which we present an ambitious program of free exhibitions and events. They concentrate on commissioning new works by Australian and international artists at pivotal points of their practices, as well as connecting underrepresented artists with wider audiences.

The IMA has a longstanding commitment to research and a rich history of publishing artist monographs and critical readers. They also have an extensive public program including targeted educational initiatives for young people and adults, and development opportunities for arts professionals. The IMA’s program is generated from our research and ongoing work with partners locally, nationally, and internationally.
