After a few months with the doors closed, Heide has returned with five exhibitions across Heide I, Heide II and Heide III.

Headlining the bill in Heide III is the Joy Hester: Remember Me exhibition, looking into her celebrated career through original works, impromptu studies which shed light on her creative process along with photography from various points in the celebrated artist’s life.

Albert Tucker: Marking The Past is also on display, which explores the late Australian painter’s artistic endeavours that were largely inspired by Christian and Renaissance art. Video work from multidisciplinary artist, Archie Barry, is also currently playing in Heide III daily. 

Over in Heide II, you’ll find Carolyn Eskdale’s Memory Horizon exhibition, which is largely comprised of installation works that act as a response to the modernist architecture of the stunning building it’s housed within.

In the Heide Cottage, or Heide I, is The House of Ideas, a deep dive into the art inspired by the global turbulance of the 1930s, 1940s and World War II.

Heide is currently operating with heightened health and safety measures for obvious reasons, so you’ll need to book in for a timed session ahead of you arriving. Your ticket gets you an hour in the Joy Hester: Remember Me exhibition and untimed entry into everything else. The gardens and sculpture park are also open for you to roam through at your leisure.

Heide is also opening a healing garden later this year. Find out about it here.
