2 Since 1975, the Institute of Modern Art (IMA) has been Queensland’s leading independent forum for art and its discourses. The IMA has museum grade, climate-controlled gallery spaces in which we present an ambitious program of exhibitions and events, open to everyone. We focus on commissioning new works by Australian and international artists at pivotal points in their practices, as well as connecting underrepresented artists with wider audiences.
