Institute of Modern Art

The Institute of Modern Art (IMA) has been a leading venue in Australia for the production, presentation and circulation of contemporary art for 40 years. As one of the country’s first non-collecting public galleries, the IMA has played an integral role in developing contemporary art in Queensland, Australia, and internationally.

The IMA has museum-grade, climate-controlled gallery spaces in which we present an ambitious program of exhibitions, concentrating on commissioning new works by Australian and international artists at pivotal points in their practices, and sharing underrepresented artists with wider audiences. The IMA has a longstanding commitment to research and a rich history of publishing critical readers, exhibition catalogues, and artist monographs. We also provide an extensive program of events, targeted educational initiatives, and development opportunities for arts professionals. Please explore our exhibitions archive and browse our publications.

The IMA is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, part of the Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts, and from the Visual Arts Board of the Australia Council for the Arts, 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). The IMA is listed in the Registration of Cultural Organisations and has Deductible Gift Recipient and Tax Charity Concession status.

The IMA’s exhibition program is fully curated, we are not able to accept unsolicited proposals.
