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.

5 July 2018, The Portrait of Molly Dean by Katherine Kovacic
At our JULY Book Club we are offering a FRIEND FOR FREE PASS* for either the morning or evening session.
An unsolved murder comes to light after almost seventy years…
In 1999, art dealer Alex Clayton stumbles across a lost portrait of Molly Dean, an artist’s muse brutally slain in Melbourne in 1930. Alex buys the painting and sets out to uncover more details, but finds there are strange inconsistencies: Molly’s mother seemed unconcerned by her daughter’s violent death, the main suspect was never brought to trial despite compelling evidence, and vital records are missing.
Alex enlists the help of her close friend, art conservator John Porter, and together they sift through the clues and deceptions that swirl around the last days of Molly Dean.
