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.
Murray Fredericks and Tom Schutzinger’s three-channel video installation Inside the Dome (DYE 2), 2015, was filmed in an abandoned early warning missile detection facility on Greenland’s remote – and spectacular – western ice sheet.
The exhibition is somewhat of a retrospective of Marani’s 25-year career as an artist.
