Pair a nighttime exhibition by Margel Hinder with a special book signing in Heide.
A room for her is a book that allows us to explore the interiors of the homes of 20 women around the world. From artists and designers to creators and curators, the book delves not only into the home and studio spaces of the featured women, but also into their lives via a series of evocative texts by author and photographer Robyn Lea.
On Thursday 9 December, the Heide Museum of Modern Art offers a one night only event which combines a signing session by Robyn Lea with a night vision of the Margel Hinder: modernity on the move exhibition currently on display at the museum. Margel Hinder (1906-1995) is one of the most interesting but little-known sculptors who worked in Australia in the mid-20th century, and this exhibition is the first retrospective dedicated to her work.
Born in New York and educated in Buffalo and Boston, Hinder moved to Sydney in the mid-1930s after marrying artist Frank Hinder. It was there that her practice flourished and that she would become an Australian pioneer of avant-garde art forms. The exhibition features a number of sculptures by Hinder from more than five decades of his career, showing for the first time the full extent of his creativity and vision as an artist.
It is an appropriate exhibit to see alongside A room for her, with its pages filled with realizations and daily life of creative women. The ticket price includes admission to the museum, a 10% Heide Shop discount on selected purchases and a glass of wine.
