Daniel Boyd And Rana Hamadeh Double Opening says
The IMA kicks off 2016 with a major commission by Beirut-born, Rotterdam-based artist Rana Hamadeh, and the first solo exhibition in Queensland of Cairns-born, Sydney-based artist Daniel Boyd.

There is a preview for IMA Members and Supporters from 5pm, followed by a FREE opening reception from 6-8pm.

Boyd’s acclaimed practice deftly layers colonial history, European modernism and its connections to the Pacific, and the subtle interplay between lenses and techniques of Western and Indigenous art of Australia. Boyd’s exhibition offers a close look at the artist's ongoing interest in maps; keys for unlocking land, sea, sky and the great unknown.

Hamadeh’s new film and installation, 'The Sleepwalkers', is commissioned by the IMA, Nottingham Contemporary, and The Showroom in London, in collaboration with Flat Time House, London, and Primary, Nottingham. It is the latest chapter in Hamadeh's long-term project 'Alien Encounters', and revisits the story of Egyptian serial killers – and sisters – Raya and Sakina Ali Hamam. This is Hamadeh's first exhibition in Australia and exclusive to the IMA.

Hamadeh’s exhibitio in supported by the Keir Foundation and Mondriaan Fund.
