Portrait of an Artist — Judy Watson

Judy Watson

This event is now in the past.

Come along to the second talk in the Portrait of an Artist 2018 series and gain a unique insight into the life and works of one of Queensland's most celebrated artists, Judy Watson at a special event at State Library of Queensland.

Judy is a Waanyi woman, with family connections via her maternal grandmother to the far north-west of Queensland. Early on in her career, Judy and her family visited Riversleigh Station on Waanyi country where her grandmother was born. This was a pivotal event, cementing her connection to family and ancestral sites and stories, and became a touchstone for her art practice from then on.

Watch a screening of an interview with Judy filmed for the James C Sourris AM Collection of contemporary Australian artist interviews

Following the screening, enjoy an intimate question and answer session with Judy and hear her fascinating insights into how an artist thinks, feels and works.

The Portrait of an Artist series is made possible thanks to the generosity of James C Sourris AM through the Queensland Library Foundation.
