  • Jenny Watson: here, there and everywhere

    A Vizard Foundation Contemporary Artist Project

    17 Jan 2012 to 8 Apr 2012
    Curator: Dr Chris McAuliffe

    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.
