You’re invited to the opening of The Commute, an exhibition curated by the IMA’s Visiting Curators. The Commute encompasses a series of commissioned projects by eight Indigenous artists located around the Great Ocean, also known as the Pacific Rim, who assert complex, wide-ranging, contemporary Indigenous experiences inclusive of both ancestral knowledges and global connections.

Join the artists and Visiting Curators for the opening celebrations. The opening begins at 4.30pm with a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony by Yerongpan Aboriginal Dancers, followed by a guided barefoot walk through the exhibition at 5pm.

The festivities will continue into the evening in the IMA Courtyard with food, drinks, and music from DJ Brown Amy (xučyun/Oakland, CA – Chulita Vinyl Club: Bay Area, Stay Firme, Hard French).

The exhibition features the work of Natalie Ball (Modoc, Klamath, Black), Hannah Brontë (Yaegel), Bracken Hanuse Corlett (Wuikinuxv, Klahoose), Chantal Fraser (Sāmoa), Lisa Hilli (Gunantuna), Carol McGregor (Wathaurung, Scottish), Ahilapalapa Rands (Kanaka Maoli, iTaukei Viti, Pākehā), and T’uy’t’tanat-Cease Wyss (Sḵwx̱ wú7mesh, Stó:lō, Irish, Métis, Kanaka Maoli, Swiss).

The Commute is a collaborative project led by Indigenous curators Freja Carmichael (Quandamooka), Sarah Biscarra Dilley (yak tityu tityu yak tiłhini Northern Chumash, Chicana), Léuli Eshrāghi (Sāmoa, Irānzamin, Guangdong), Tarah Hogue (Métis, Dutch Canadian) and Lana Lopesi (Sāmoa), invited as 2018 Visiting Curators at the IMA.
