This year, Heide Museum of Modern Art will celebrate the long-term collaboration between conceptual artists Janet Burchill and Jennifer McCamley, who have been making bold feminist art together since the mid-1980s. Temptation to Co-Exist highlights the artists’ thought-provoking and extensive back catalogue, as well as recent work, with an exhibition encompassing painting, photography, sculpture and neon installations.
Temptation to Co-Exist references modernism, blurring boundaries between art and design, nature and artifice, with a political consciousness that’s exceedingly current. Burchill and McCamley’s work – from the 1980s up to today – is still blisteringly relevant. Their exciting feminist approach and material conceptualism makes for a natural follow-up to Heide’s beloved Mirka Mora retrospective. This expansive collection will dominate Heide’s Central Galleries from April to July.
Temptation to Co-Exist is the ideal exhibition to house at Heide – viewers will be captivated by the large-scale sculptures and startling neons, then enjoy a refreshing walk around Heide’s grounds or lunch at the cafe.
