When public health guidelines prompted Heide Museum of Modern Art to close for the best part of four months, it also delayed a much-anticipated major survey show. But now, the wait is over and the gallery finally gets to celebrate 100 years since the birth of one of the country's most significant modernist talents, with the real-life launch of Joy Hester: Remember Me. It's the first solo exhibition of Hester's art in close to two decades.

Kicking off as soon as Heide reopens its doors on June 30, the show features over 140 of Hester's works, sourced from a variety of public and private collections. Here, you'll get a strong sense of the artist's unique flair and non-traditional stylings, across a wide-ranging catalogue that spans two decades and includes plenty of drawings never before shown in public.

Joy Hester: Remember Me showcases the progression of this Aussie artist's influential career, tripping from early pieces created amid the turbulence of World War II, through to later series of portraits from the 1950s. Right across this hefty body of brush and ink work, the icon continues her flirtation with the provocative, exploring signature themes of love, sex, birth and death to powerful effect.

Heide Museum of Modern Art is open from 10am–5pm Tuesday–Sunday. Pre-booking tickets is essential.
