From Sunrise Road at Heide

Visit the artist’s first Australian museum exhibition in Heide – we recommend viewing after dark.

Bruce Munro knows a thing or two about light. It is an essential part of his art practice spanning more than 30 years and has brought the artist worldwide recognition for his immersive, large-scale installations, inspired by his interest in shared human experience. From Saturday 25 June to Sunday 16 October Heide . presents Bruce Munro: From Sunrise RoadMunro’s first museum exhibition in Australia, combining both indoor and outdoor experiential artworks with more intimate story pieces.

Munro was born and still lives in the UK but has also lived and worked for many years in Australia where he began his first explorations in the medium of light. Bruce Munro: From Sunrise Road reveals the depth of Munro’s practice and the breadth of his inspiration, from personal and literary to philosophical and spiritual. The exhibition is interactive, sensory and aims to be contemplative and playful in nature.

Throughout the exhibition, Heide will keep their doors open until 8pm Thursday to Sunday evenings, allowing visitors to view Munro’s illuminated outdoor art after dark. There are also guided tours every Friday at 6.30 pm and snacks and hot drinks in Café Heide. If the kids come along, you can also pick up a nice package from the Heide Shop, with all the essentials for watching in the dark.

Tickets are included with admission to the museum and are free for Heide members. View more details and book your tickets.
