BVAA attended the IMA Market Day 2024! We were joined by our bestie Paul Andrew from ARI Remix and ARI support dog August. In addition we sold wares on our shared table by friends-of-the-ARI Tallara Gray, Emily McGuire and Peter Kozak. We also thank Caitlin Sheedy for putting together this fabulous event and for her ongoing support for local artists.
Paul has also written a lovely reflection on the capacity of community events like the IMA Markets to influence the future direction of the IMA:
"In my 48 years of going to the Institute of Modern Art, this annual event is a clarion reminder of the IMA at it’s very best. At the cusp of 50 year anniversary of the IMA in 2025 I hope that the non-dominant, non-elite, non-oppressive, non-lazy, non-profit, non-conservative, actively dialogic, activist-oriented, critical and community-based activity abuzz today helps to directly shape and inform a fabulous, inclusive, emotionally-intelligent and community-based future for the IMA in the next fifty years, and to help make art a little less hard than it often is for Queensland-born/Queensland-based artists..."
Thanks to Meg Keene and the IMA for these beaut images of the day <3
