Aboriginal artist Judy Watson (Waanyi) visited the Kluge-Ruhe Collection for a week as an artist-in-residence in October 2011. While here, she presented her work in an Artist Talk and lectured in a seminar for the Department of Environmental Sciences with UVA Professor Megan Marlatt. The artists shared their experience working among scientists at research stations in Australia and Virginia. Watson participated in a luncheon which considered the value, challenges, and resources for collaboration between the arts and sciences, at UVA and beyond. Watson also worked on a new set of prints titled experimental beds, which she proofed with UVA printmaking students. Author Henry Wiencek gave a talk about experimental beds called Seeing Jefferson from Australia at the Harrison Institute for American History, Literature, and Culture at UVA.
Presented in partnership with UVA Arts Council.
