From impulse to action centres on Arthur Boyd’s drawings in ink, both brightly coloured and monochrome, as the starting point for 12 new commissions by Australian contemporary artists working in a diverse range of disciplines.

A central example of the expansive power of Boyd’s drawings are his 1963 designs created for Robert Helpmann’s ballet Elektra. They represent the potential for small, experimental works to translate into large-scale, interdisciplinary projects, and to shift from image to performance. In parallel, the commissioned artists reflect the immediacy of Boyd’s drawings through choreography and film, photography and sculptural installation, weaving and sound. Nearly all the works were developed through site visits and residencies.

At its heart, From impulse to action is a celebration of Bundanon as an important site of cultural production, one that has existed for thousands of years. It draws on the creative energy of experimentation, proposing a connection between artists past, present and future.



Due to road damage caused by significant rainfall in the region, the Homestead & Arthur Boyd’s Studio are currently closed.

The Homestead interior will be closed to the public from Monday 18 April due to major restoration work. The property will remain open on Saturdays and Sundays, providing visitors with access to Arthur Boyd's Studio and the surrounding grounds and gardens. The Treelines Track and Haunted Point Loop walks will also be open to the public.
