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.
