Works by George Johnson and Richard Dunn feature in 'Call of the Avant-Garde: Constructivism and Australian Art' at Heide Museum of Modern Art

"This extensive survey of over sixty artists explores how Australian artists have responded to this ground breaking modernist movement and its enduring call upon their imaginations from the 1930s to the present day.

Works by Ralph Balson, Frank Hinder, Inge King, Gunter Christmann, George Johnson, Robert Owen, Rose Nolan, Justene Williams, Richard Dunn and Zoe Croggon among many others will be shown alongside those by key proponents of the original movement, such as Russian artists Rodchenko, Malevich, El Lissitzky and Alexandra Exter from Russia, and British artists Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth."
