Event Dale Harding and Ana Mendieta

Dale Harding and Ana Mendieta

Double Exhibition Opening

09 February 2019
4–8pm

Join us at the IMA for the opening of two concurrent exhibitions—Dale HardingCurrent Iterations and Ana MendietaConnecting to the Earth.

Current Iterations is the first survey exhibition by Brisbane-based artist Dale Harding (Bidjara, Garingbal and Ghungalu peoples). The exhibition brings together new and recent works by Harding, focusing on shared languages permeating landscape, bodies, and objects.

Alongside Harding’s Current Iterations will be an exhibition of Ana Mendieta‘s work titled Connecting to the Earth. The exhibition brings together two series of works by the Cuban American artist (1948-1985) that are about connection to land. Rarely considered together, the Siluetaseries and the Rupestrian Sculpture series powerfully demonstrate Mendieta’s idea of feminised nature.

The exhibition opening at 4pm will commence with a Welcome to Country.

Current Iterations is curated by the IMA’s Executive Directors, Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh, and supported by the Australia Council for the Arts and The Keir Foundation, and features a co-commission with the 10th Liverpool Biennial (2018). Ana Mendieta: Connecting to the Earth is the first solo exhibition of the artist’s work in Australia and is guest curated by Professor Susan Best, Deputy director (research & postgraduate), Queensland College of Art, Griffith University.
