Event description

Join us to celebrate the launch of Natalya Hughes’ first artist monograph published to accompany her IMA exhibition The Interior. 

Contributing essayist Jacqueline Chlanda will be in conversation with Natalya discussing the exhibition, publication, and the importance of publishing to feminist art histories. The IMA will launch the publication and it will be available for purchase in the Gallery Shop. 

This publication explores three interrelated strands in the Hughes’ recent practice that that reappraise male modernists (Freud, Kirchner, and de Kooning) and their complex female subjects. Featuring essays by Professor Susan Best (QCA, Griffith), Dr Jacqueline Chlanda (UQ Art Museum), Dr Andrew McNamara (QUT), alongside an interview between Hughes and curator Elspeth Pitt (NGA) this publication is a rich survey of Hughes’s recent work.  

The Interior is designed by Evi O Studio, Sydney and published by the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane.
