The idea of a series of Sidney Nolan paintings hanging in a newsagent’s shop window seems rather quaint. Yet this was the scene that greeted customers of Sheffield’s newsagency in the Melbourne suburb of Heidelberg in July 1942. Now, 75 years later, Heide Museum of Modern Art is reimagining this overlooked exhibition to consider its place within Nolan’s career.
Showcasing the work of its founding members, the exhibition is packed with works from the 1980s up to the present day. The Boomalli Ten feels like a celebration not just of those 10 artists but more broadly of the Indigenous Australian art now flourishing in the post-colonial present.
Polly Borland’s latest photographic series titled Not Good at Human at Sullivan+Strumpf stems from her feelings of displacement after moving to Los Angeles.
As part of this year’s Melbourne Festival, Shiota will create a new body of work for a major solo exhibition at Anna Schwartz Gallery.
