Motto IMA opening. 11.10.2014.

Please join us for the opening of Motto IMA, hosted within the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane.

Motto IMA is a specialist book shop within the institution, functioning as a platform for discourse around publishing within an expanded field of art and design. The selection is carefully curated by Motto and IMA staff. In collaboration with the IMA and separately, the bookstore will host talks, readings, book launches, and features projects and events organised by artists or other art professionals. The premises has been designed by Berlin based Studio Miessen.

This collaborative initiative builds on the IMA’s rich history of publishing catalogues, monographs, and academic writing, often in partnerships with others. The IMA currently publish three to four books a year, as well as smaller exhibition-based publications and artists editions.

The bookshop’s opening will accompany the opening of two new shows: Mierle Laderman Ukeles: Maintenance Art Works 1969–1980 and Sarah Browne: Hand to Mouth.

Motto presents MAKING WORLDS: Publication launch & temporary store

Making Worlds: Art and Science Fiction is a collection of new texts by artists, curators, art historians and writers who are self-confessed science fiction fans. The linking point is the idea of science fiction as a platform for the building of alternate art histories. This collection is concerned with the ways in which science fiction might be performed, materialised or enacted within a contemporary context. Published by Surpllus.

Motto will also present a temporary bookshop within the IMA during the event, offering a selection of books, magazines, artists’ publications and editions.

Thursday 15th August, from 6pm
