THE LIGHT FADES BUT THE GODS REMAIN
A Monash Gallery of Art (MGA) travelling exhibition
Horsham Regional Art Gallery warmly invites you to the opening of: The light fades but the gods remain: Bill Henson.
Join us in welcoming a major touring exhibition from the Monash Gallery of Art (MGA).
Opened by Anouska Phizacklea, Director of Monash Gallery of Art (MGA).
The light fades but the gods remain is a major exhibition showcasing two key series by Bill Henson, one of Australia’s most eminent artists. These explore the suburb of Glen Waverley, where the artist grew up. In celebration of MGA’s 25th anniversary, Henson was commissioned to revisit the suburb of his childhood and to produce a new body of work reflecting upon his earlier series Untitled 1985–86, known by many as ‘the suburban series’. This ground-breaking commission offers an unparalleled insight into one of Australia’s most revered artists as he explores the notion of home, intensifying the everyday to a point of dramatic revelation and romantic beauty.
Curated by Pippa Milne, Senior Curator MGA.
