Judy Watson: the edge of memory

Judy Watson is a multi-media artist whose practice reflects on Aboriginal history and culture. For ‘the edge of memory’, Watson presents a series of paintings, prints and drawings, which explore the indelible marks left on country by past events. Including pieces from the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ collection, the works in this exhibition reveal Australia’s hidden histories, while tracing Watson’s matrilineal connection to country, the Waanyi lands of north-west Queensland.
