The Institute of Modern Art (IMA) in Brisbane is re-launching on Saturday 11 October at 5pm.

The new premises, designed by Berlin-based collaborative agency for spatial strategy and cultural analysis Studio Miessen, will include a new branch of Motto, a worldwide network of stores dedicated to books, magazines, artists’ publications and more.

The inaugural program will feature a new body of works by Dublin- based artist Sarah Browne titled Hand To Mouth, and a survey of New-York based artist Mierle Laderman Ukeles’ Maintenance Art Works.

Browne’s exhibition examines the historical relationship between the production of perishable textiles and invisible digital code, while Ukeles’s show explores life’s everyday routines.

Exclusive to the IMA, this program marks the first time that these artists are holding solo exhibitions in Australia.

Both exhibitions open 11 October 2014 and continue until 29 November 2014.
