Thursday, May 21, 2020

The staff at the Institute of Modern Art have developed Making Art Work and the will act as curators for several artists’ projects. This initiative is the IMA’s way of supporting artists, as well as offering solidarity to a vulnerable sector. They have reallocated resources and adapted roles within the organisation in order to support and provide opportunities and economic assistance to as many local artists as possible. The IMA is commissioning more than forty artists throughout the course of the next six months. The commissioned artists will create works that represent and document the current moment, encourage the community to resist, protest, and organise, build frameworks for our post-COVID future, engage with care and assistance, as well as give back to the community. The artworks will not only respond to the current global emergency, but will also reinforce the value of art during times of hardship and confusion.
