Showcasing an exciting range of artworks acquired by Heide over the last decade, this exhibition represents Heide circle artists and significant contemporary practitioners.

Together, these new and recent acquisitions shape a narrative of the history of modern and contemporary art in Australia and pay tribute to the many generous benefactors who have contributed to the development of the Heide Collection in the last ten years through gift, bequest and donation.

Recent Acquisitions: The Heide Collection coincides with the reissue of The Heide Collection, a lavishly illustrated publication with commentary on 100 artworks and contributions from Heide curators and collections staff past and present.
