The Institute of Modern Art (IMA) is the oldest contemporary art space of its kind in Australia. Established in 1975, the institution promotes experimentation and research by diverse Australian and international artists, and shares their work with wide audiences through four interconnected streams: production, presentation, participation and publishing. The IMA concentrates on commissioning new works by Australian and international artists at pivotal points of their practices, as well as connecting underrepresented artists with the broader public. In 2018, the institution organised over 100 public and learning programs, including talks, tours, screenings, workshops. The IMA is a founding member of the Contemporary Art Organisations Australia.
