Artwork & Projects

The IMA’s goal is to present contemporary art projects and exhibitions that provoke a reexamination of humanity’s multifaceted relationship with the environment.

Most of the site-specific installations are intended for a completely hands-on experience. Atelier Van Lieshout’s Funky Bones, Jeppe Hein’s Bench Around the Lake, and Los Carpinteros's Free Basket are great for playing on, or just taking a seat while enjoying the scenery around you. Alfredo Jaar’s Park of the Laments is designed to fully immerse the viewer as one walks through and reflects on the combination of art and nature. Kendall Buster’s Stratum Pier is a platform where visitors can view the lake or even fish from, all you need is an Indiana fishing license and use artificial bait.
