Artists play host at the IMA on the first Thursday of the month from 6–9pm. Join them for some unmissable evenings of art, music, dance, food, and cultural experiences!

2 March: Radha La Bia

Radha La Bia is a persona portrayed by Shahmen Suku. Shahmen was born in 1987 in Singapore and arrived in Australia in 2009. He is a performance artist based in Sydney, exploring racial and cultural identity, gender roles, the home and the kitchen, food and storytelling. Growing up in a modern matriarchal Indian family in Singapore, Shahmen processes his feelings of displacement from home as Radha La Bia, the Diva from India, who entered the country by dubious means.

Radha La Bia the Diva from India explores her multiple perspectives on migration, culture, race, colonisation, and gender through her performances. Radha creates holistic experiences that encompass culinary science and spatial dynamics that are spiced with the adventures of her palate.
