The Duldig Studio is a fantastic destination offering fun and enriching art experiences all year round.
Our Current Exhibition
Art, innovation and reinvention - discover the world of a Viennese modernist in Melbourne
For the first time an exhibition by the Austrian-Australian artist, Slawa Horowitz-Duldig (1901-1975), will be shown in the home she shared with husband sculptor Karl Duldig - now a house museum. Presenting her early graphic works and sculptures, remarkable survivors of war and dislocation, the exhibition gives insight into Viennese art of the early modernist period. Follow SLAWA's story – told through her drawings, sculptures, fashion and furniture design, and her ingenious invention of the folding umbrella.
Individual and group bookings essential via Group Tour Bookings.
A discussion series based around Duldig Studio’s current exhibition SLAWA: modernist art + design.
Inspired by the inventiveness of Slawa, and presented by leading creative practitioners and local business women, the talks focus on themes represented in the exhibition and the links to contemporary art and design thinking and practice. An opportunity to reflect on what is happening in art and design for women in Australia today and consider the legacy and importance of women in the Arts.

1 March 2018 The Museum of Modern Love by Heather Rose (winner of the Stella Prize)
Arky Levin is a film composer in New York separated from his wife, who has asked him to keep one devastating promise. One day he finds his way to The Atrium at MOMA and sees Marina Abramovic in ‘The Artist is Present’. The performance continues for seventy-five days and, as it unfolds, so does Arky. As he watches and meets other people drawn to the exhibit, he slowly starts to understand what might be missing in his life and what he must do.
