Judy Watson: concealed histories presents a selection of the artist’s etchings and paintings held in The University of Queensland Art Collection. Watson is a prolific Brisbane artist, who belongs to the Waanyi people of North-West Queensland. The works selected demonstrate Watson’s research-driven practice, which allows her to reveal concealed histories by exploring scholarly research, archival records and museum collections.
