The IMA’s 2016 program begins with a major commission by Beirut-born, Rotterdam-based artist Rana Hamadeh, and the first solo exhibition in Queensland of Cairns-born, Sydney-based artist Daniel Boyd.

Hamadeh’s new film and installation, The Sleepwalkers, is commissioned by the IMA, Nottingham Contemporary, and The Showroom in London. It is the latest chapter in her long-term project Alien Encounters, and revisits the story of Egyptian serial killers – and sisters – Raya and Sakina.

Boyd’s acclaimed practice deftly layers colonial history, European modernism and its connections to the Pacific, and the subtle interplay between lenses and techniques of Western and Indigenous art of Australia.

There is a preview for IMA Members and Supporters from 5pm, followed by a public opening reception from 6-8pm.

Supported by the Keir Foundation and Mondriaan Fund. With thanks to STATION Gallery, Melbourne, and Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, Sydney.
