Jeremy Hynes Award

WHEN : 13th February, 6:00pm
WHERE : Institute of Modern Art

Every two years, the Institute of Modern Art awards $10k to an experimental Queensland artist in memory of Queensland artist Jeremy Hynes. The Brisbane art scene was shocked by the death of Jeremy Hynes late in 2006. During the 1990s Hynes produced a body of audacious performance work, which was presented at the IMA and artist run spaces like ISNT. He was much loved and respected by fellow artists, and was due to have a show at the IMA in 2007. From a bequest made in his name by his parents, Jan and Ross Hynes, the IMA will be make a biannual award of $10,000 to a Queensland experimental artist to honour his memory.
