A Living Legacy

Commencing 5 May 2020 

This exhibition tells the story of the sculptor, Karl Duldig, his journey from Europe to Australia and the studios he established along the way. Stone, clay, plaster, bronze, wood and photography are the mediums he worked with to create a powerful body of modernist works that communicate about family life, WWII, displacement and survival through art.

Visitors can see the major developments of Karl Duldig’s creative activity and explore the Studio he designed, built and worked in from 1962 – 1986.
