Mirka Mora: Pas de Deux – Drawings & Dolls
January 20 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Heide Museum of Modern Art is celebrating the Melbourne artist’s career in this exhibition
Until her death last August at the age of 90, artist Mirka Mora was a Melbourne institution, loved as much for her flamboyant personality and contribution to the city’s cultural life as for her distinctive artworks, which combine elements of folk art and surrealism with daydreams and fairytale characters. To commemorate her life and career, Heide Museum of Modern Art will host a retrospective exhibition, Mirka Mora: Pas de Deux – Drawings and Dolls, bringing together drawings and the soft-sculpture dolls for which she was known (“my dolls are my drawing in three dimensions,” Mora said), many which have never been on public display.
Heide is open Tuesday – Sunday
