Heide | Museum of Modern Art


Date: 3 August - 27 October 2019
Location: Heide II
Curator/s: Kendrah Morgan

This exhibition forms part of the centenary celebrations for Robin Boyd (1919-1971), one of Australia's most respected and well known architects, and one of our first public intellectuals and media celebrities.

During his career Boyd designed more than 300 projects, from residences to civic buildings, and was driven to prompt, inspire and provoke an awareness of good design among the widest possible audience.

Robin Boyd: Design Legend, presented in the iconic modernist building Heide II, explores some of Boyd's key design themes and principles through ten of his most remarkable houses, including the influential House of Tomorrow (1949), Boyd's own house in Walsh Street, South Yarra (1958), and the renowned Featherston house, Ivanhoe (1967-9).

The exhibition also offers insight into his work in other disciplines, from publishing and broadcasting to furniture and exhibition design.

The project is intended to introduce new audiences to Boyd, re-connect existing audiences with his work and influence, and communicate Boyd's humanist belief that good design can improve people's lives and the world we live in.
