Not sure how many artists in Melbourne would warrant a bus tour. Meadmore? King? The bus tour organised by Heide on Saturday coincides with Morton’s exhibition at Heide III, which is by his own admission a bit of a theme-park. He jokes in a recent ABC interview that he’d like some moneybags to help him set up Callum’s World, where all his unwieldy old works can go to roost. Valhalla is currently packed into two shipping containers in Melbourne’s East.
Anyway, I’m no art critic, but I recommend going to see the exhibition for yourself if you’re in Melbourne. It surveys the first twenty years of Morton’s career, and includes a homage to Heide II.
Here are some pics from the bus tour, hosted by Philip Goad.
