Misadventure is the first solo exhibition of Thompson's work in Australia. Shown across three galleries at the IMA, Luke Willis Thompson’s exhibition of conceptual sculpture and film binds together three projects that mark the first five years of the artist’s work. The exhibition as a whole is conceived as a time lapse rather than a retrospective, as all the works simultaneously mine an enduring colonial legacy that shapes our present, as well as the art we cherish within it.

Exhibition opens: 30 July 2016
Exhibition closes: 8 October 2016
Location: Institute of Modern Art, 420 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley, Qld, 4006
