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.
The Revealing Image displays a collection of Magritte’s personal, and largely unseen, photographs and films.
My first experience of Cementa in Kandos, NSW, (at the base of Combamolang Mountain) was Cementa 2015, its second iteration. The Twilight Girls (Jane Polkinghorne and myself) were invited to exhibit and we were collaborating with Mark Shorter in his guise as Renny Kodgers.
