This exhibition in Heide II celebrates new acquisitions to the museum’s collection over the past three years. Among the diversity of works are a large suspended ceiling installation by Koji Ryui, sculptures and prints by Aleks Danko, paintings by Davida Allen, and garments with textile designs based on Mirka Mora paintings, created by the fashion house Gorman in collaboration with the artist. The display also includes a range of modernist paintings and sculptures, from abstractions by Sydney artist Jan Riske, to figurative and expressionist works by artists closely associated with Heide’s founders, John and Sunday Reed, including Arthur Boyd, Joy Hester and Danila Vassilieff.
