Heide Modern

This pop-up exhibition in Heide Modern features a new collaboration between Australian fashion label Alpha60 and renowned artist Patricia Piccinini. Teaming up for the first time, Alpha60 founders Georgie and Alex Cleary have created a series of whimsical, inspiring and emotive textile works based on Piccinini’s works, under the collective title Hugs – artwork/keepsakes emblematic of nurture and warmth, two themes that live at the heart of Piccinini’s complex and captivating sculptural forms.
