Here, there and everywhere is the inaugural Vizard Foundation Contemporary Art Project, a creative initiative designed to enable mid-career and senior artists to explore new directions in their practice. Jenny Watson is the first of three annual Vizard Foundation Contemporary Artists.
Here, there and everywhere presents a selection of works produced or exhibited by Jenny Watson outside Australia since 1972, and a new commission that reflects on this distinctive aspect of her experience. Watson’s career has flourished in the many countries where she has worked and exhibited. This exhibition brings together nearly 50 rarely seen paintings and works on paper, providing insight into the themes of internationalism, cosmopolitanism, locality and personal expression that have shaped Watson’s art.
Now open, The world is not a foreign land brings together work by Timothy Cook, Djambawa Marawili, Ngarra, Rusty Peters, Freda Warlapinni and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu. Crossing three geographically and culturally distinct regions—the Tiwi Islands, the Kimberley, and North-eastern Arnhem Land—each artist presents sometimes strikingly different perspectives on what constitutes Indigenous contemporary art.
