Institute of Modern Art (IMA)

Since 1975 the Institute of Modern Art has been the hub of the Brisbane’s contemporary art scene, presenting an annual program of exhibitions, public programs, publications, and offsite programs by Queensland, Australian, and international artists.

As one of Australia’s leading independent contemporary art spaces, our vision is to become a truly inclusive, sustainable, and future focused organisation. Through our artistic programs, which include exhibitions, publications, offsite projects, and public programs, we invest in the local, shape the national, and impact the international.

The IMA is a registered charity and membership organisation supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, the Australian Government through Australia Council for the Arts, and the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian Federal, State, and Territory Governments, and many private sponsors and donors. The IMA is a founding member of Contemporary Art Organisations Australia.
