The IMA is pleased to present a talk by Chris Saines, Director of the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, followed by a conversation with Johan Lundh, Co-Director, IMA. This is the second presentation in a series of presentations running throughout the year titled What Can Art Institutions Do? 

Saines has 30 years’ experience in Australian and New Zealand galleries as a director, curatorial and collection manager, educator and curator. He commenced as Director of the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern (QAGOMA) in April 2013, having previously been Director of Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki from 1996–2013. He led that institution’s $125 million redevelopment, which opened in 2011 and won World Building of the Year 2013. Previously, Mr Saines spent 11 years at Queensland Art Gallery, eight of them as Manager of Curatorial Services. He re-joined QAGOMA as Director with a commitment to internally curating major exhibitions both from the Collection and with leading international artists, and to touring Collection exhibitions nationally and internationally. His vision is for QAGOMA to be the leading museum for the contemporary art of Australia, Asia and the Pacific.

This event is free for IMA members. Suggested donation for non-members is $5.
