Patricia Piccinini and Joy Hester: Through Love…edit
Love and intimacy is the focus of a landmark exhibition at TarraWarra Museum of Art that for the first time pairs the work of Patricia Piccinini with that of important Australian modernist Joy Hester.
Patricia Piccinini and Joy Hester: Through love… is curated by Victoria Lynn and presents more than 50 works, including Sanctuary, a major new sculpture by Piccinini, and rarely-seen works by Hester. The exhibition explores the incredible spectrum of human and non-human relationships, from romantic love and maternal devotion through to the connections formed between humans and animals, and animate and inanimate objects.
