Albert and Barbara Tucker Gallery, Heide Museum of Modern Art

25 June to 9 October 2011

Curators: Lesley Harding and Jason Smith

The Futile City derives its theme from Albert Tucker’s iconic 1940 painting of the same title in Heide’s Collection. The exhibition juxtaposes images of the city painted by Tucker over his lifetime with those by several contemporary artists for whom the city and its structures provide rich and complex source material.
