The Institute of Modern Art has been the leading independent forum in Queensland, Australia, for the production, presentation, and circulation of contemporary art and discourse for over 40 years. Their innovative and diverse programs embed the international in the local and engage the local internationally.

They present an ambitious program of exhibitions, concentrating on commissioning new works by Australian and international artists at pivotal points in their practices.
