About the exhibition
The light fades but the gods remain is a major exhibition at Monash Gallery of Art showcasing two key series by Bill Henson.
In celebration of MGA’s 25th anniversary, Bill Henson was commissioned to revisit the suburb of his childhood, Glen Waverley, and to produce a new body of work that reflects upon his earlier series Untitled 1985–86, known by many as ‘the suburban series’. Both series of work Untitled 1985–86 and Untitled 2018–19 will be exhibited at MGA in July 2019. This ground-breaking commission offers an unparalleled insight into one of Australia’s most revered artists, as he revisits the landscape of his childhood to explore the notion of home, intensifying the everyday to a point of dramatic revelation and romantic beauty.
*Student card must be presented at the door on request. Guardians are also welcome to attend with ticket purchase.
