Modern in Motion catalogue
Presented by Heide Museum of Modern Art and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Margel Hinder: Modern in Motion catalogues the first dedicated retrospective of one of Australia's most dynamic, yet uderrated 20th century sculptors.
Margel Hinder (1906-95) initially worked in woodcarving in the 1930s, but by the early 1950s she shifted to an abstract sculptural language that explored form, space, light and movement. She created commanding kinetic works whose slow rotations encapsulate a sense of the world in perpetual motion. Hinder also created some of Australia's most enduring outdoor monuments, incorporating the movement of water into her sculptural forms.
Published to coincide with the exhibition, this beautifully presented publication is co-edited by Lesley Harding, Artistic Director at Heide Museum of Modern Art and Denise Mimmochi, Snior Curator of Australian art at the Art Gallery of NSW.
