Boyd (install 5)

Daniel Boyd at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane

15 January 2016

Daniel Boyd’s first solo exhibition in his home state’s capital, Brisbane, will open this February at the

Institute of Modern Art (IMA)

. Exhibited in the IMA’s new exhibition space, 'The Green Room', an endeavour that aims to have connection to the region, this exhibition will focus on Boyd’s paintings that feature “maps”. These maps act as keys for unlocking land, sea, sky, and tracing colonial stories, from being representative of a boatman’s tale that evokes the dichotomy of this life and the next, to the utilitarian representation of ocean currents and swells.

Opening on 20 February the exhibition runs until 24 March.
