MGA COLLECTION ARTIST
– Limited signed copies available –
MGA’s landmark exhibition Bill Henson: The light fades but the gods remain was a major exhibition showcasing two key series by Bill Henson, one of Australia’s most eminent artists, exploring the suburb of Glen Waverley where he grew up.
The exhibition was accompanied by a comprehensive publication, The Light Fades but the Gods Remain, which celebrates an extraordinary artist at two stages in his career. The publication includes extracts by various authors who have had an impact on Henson, as well as text by Monash Gallery of Art Senior Curator Pippa Milne.
Including over 150 pages of Henson’s most personal works and texts relating to the two series, Untitled 1985–86 and Untitled 2018–19, The light fades but the gods remain is a visual celebration and tribute to one of Australia’s most eminent artists.
