Calling all art lovers — and those who'd like to take their penchant for painting, sculpting and other creative endeavours to the next level. Brisbane's Institute of Modern Art is throwing their yearly shindig, and it's a themed affair. Here, you'll support one of the city's best galleries, and you'll wear your affection for your favourite artist or artwork not only on your sleeves, but as your entire outfit.
If you're keen on going to IMA's Annual Party as your artistic self, that's fine too. Artists and artworks come in all shapes, sizes and guises, after all. Those who do get into the dress-up spirit will have their attire judged by Gail Sorronda, Dirk Yates and Carl Dempster, and can even win prizes; however having fun, celebrating the Brunswick Street institution and hanging out with like-minded art aficionados is the real agenda on October 28.
Kicking off at 6pm, the event also includes the unveiling of the new IMA Courtyard Commission, Corps à Corps; tunes spun by A Love Supreme DJs; complimentary beverages on arrival from Madfish, Newstead Brewing Co., and Splitrock/Tiro; and Ben's Burgers making sure you don't go hungry. Entry is free, but attendees are asked to register in advance for what's bound to be one crazily creative night.
