We are delighted to announce that the Housemuseum Galleries will be reopening from 2 June, 2021, with an exhibition that is close to our hearts—an exhibition of works by John Nixon (1949-2020), one of Australia’s most celebrated artists.
We have had the privilege of collecting Nixon’s works over many years and were fortunate to have known him as a colleague and friend. Drawn from works in the Lyon Collection, the exhibition celebrates the artist’s 50 year enquiry into form, colour, and materials, and his explorations into the nature of painting.
Co-curated by the Lyon Housemuseum and Nixon’s long-standing Melbourne gallerist Anna Schwartz, the exhibition also marks Nixon’s extraordinary contribution to our culture—to art, people, community, and friends.
