Ima Brisbane has just turned 40, in celebration of this wonderful achievement they have created an archive of their last four decades. It includes an image log and interviews with past directors, one of my favourite were with directors Michael Snelling and Robert Leonard.
Leonard said that ‘The IMA is never going to have museum style mass visitation, it’s not set up to get it and it shouldn’t try to. It primarily speaks to insiders: to practitioners, to the industry, to art students. But, in doing this, it has a disproportionately large impact on the wider art discussion. It’ business is influence. It’s about shaping the discussion at the sharp end… check out the archive, it’s great.
