Current Exhibitions

Lisa Liebetrau and Shannon Lyons, curated by Brent Harrison

The beautiful is useful

4 November 2023 - 14 January 2024

The beautiful is useful brings together new artworks by Lisa Liebetrau and Shannon Lyons to investigate the history of the Point Heathcote Reception Home. Through their site-responsive practices, Liebetrau and Lyons explore Heathcote’s progressive approach to the treatment of mental illness and the lived experiences of its nurses and patients. The artists have investigated the institutional history of Heathcote by delving into the rich archive of objects, images and oral histories held in the City of Melville’s Heathcote Collection. By immersing themselves in the collection and responding to the built environment of the site, Liebetrau and Lyons pay homage to the caregiving environment that existed at the hospital.

Goolugatup Heathcote Gallery presents an annual program of contemporary art exhibitions across three gallery spaces. It also produces three special commissioning programs: the site-responsive TILT, the Digital Art Program, and Melville Contemporary.

Apply for an Exhibition

Goolugatup Heathcote Gallery is now accepting exhibition Expressions of Interest year-round. We welcome EOIs from solo artists, artist groups, curators, touring shows and institutions. We present both emerging and established artists. Artist fees are awarded to exhibitors. Generally, we schedule exhibitions one year in advance.

EOIs can be submitted by a quick online form, below. The form involves a project description and uploading images. All applications are considered by a selection panel against specified criteria. We assess apps once yearly – in early June  – if we think your proposal is a good fit for the program, we will be in contact.
