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.


 
Creative Women in Conversation

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.
