The IMA is pleased to present film installation Nellie (2013) by artist Fiona Tan. Nellie takes its point of departure from the imagined life of a forgotten woman, Cornelia van Rijn, who was the daughter of the famed seventeenth century painter Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn. At the age of 15 she emigrated to Batavia, present day Jakarta.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands where the IMA now stands, and pay respect to Elders, past, present, and emerging.
