IMA Belltower at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts


After an open call for applications across Queensland, Courtney Coombs has been selected to exhibit as part of the IMA Belltower program.

Courtney Coombs is an artist, writer and facilitator. Adopting an array of materials and approaches, they present subjective, vulnerable, and earnest moments. By responding to the cis-heteronormative, patriarchal, and neoliberal structures of both the art world and society more broadly with gestures and propositions, they hope to disrupt dominant narratives, prompting conversation, reflection, and a celebration of difference.
