SOMERSET CELEBRATES ART IN JUNE
The Condensery is hosting a special weekend of talks and workshops in June as part of the Somerset Celebrates Art month.
Join Slow Churn artist Judy Watson in conversation with curator Olivia Welch.
Judy Watson’s nationally and internationally recognised practice draws from her matrilineal connection to Waanyi Country in Northwest Queensland. She has work in every major state collection in Australia, numerous regional, public and university collections nationally, and many international collections, including the British Museum, London; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taiwan; and Tate Britain, London, UK. In 1997 Watson represented Australia at the Venice Biennale, alongside Emily Kame Kngwarreye and Yvonne Koolmatrie. Watson holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Tasmania, and a Doctorate of Art History honoris causa from The University of Queensland, among other awards and qualifications. Watson is represented by Milani Gallery, Brisbane and Tolarno Galleries, Melbourne.
The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Somerset Regional Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland. This project was made possible by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, provided through Regional Arts Australia, administered in Queensland by Flying Arts Alliance.
