Vincent Namatjira in conversation with Lisa Slade and Bruce Johnson-McLean (Onsite and online)

Overview

Join artist Vincent Namatjira (Western Aranda people) in conversation with Lisa Slade (Assistant Director, Art Gallery of South Australia) and Bruce Johnson-McLean (Weirdi, Birri-Gubba peoples, Assistant Director, First Nations Engagement and Head Curator, First Nations Art, National Gallery of Australia).

The first Indigenous artist to win the Archibald Prize, Vincent Namatjira has become known as a subversive and witty portraitist and a satirical chronicler of Australian identity.

The panel will discuss his paintings of important figures, both personal and political, and ideas about power, politics and history that inform his work.

The artist will also reflect on the influence of his great-grandfather, Western Arranda artist, Albert Namatjira. A selection of Albert Namatjira’s watercolours from the national collection are featured in the exhibition, only at the National Gallery.
