Lunchtime Talk: Albert Namatjira by Franchesca Cubillo
1 William Street, Sydney, NSW, 2000, Australia
18th June 2019
12:30pm to 1:30pm
Albert Namatjira is one of Australia's great artists, and perhaps the best known Aboriginal painter. He was born in 1902 on the Hermannsburg Lutheran mission in the Northern Territory and his life was entangled in virulent racial politics.
Join Franchesca Cubillo, Churchill Scholar and Senior Curator Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art at the National Gallery of Australia, as she offers insights into the Hermannsburg Movement, the artist’s magnificent paintings and enduring legacy.
This hour-long talk at the Australian Museum is hosted by journalist Tracey Holmes.
Drop in on your lunch break or take the opportunity to visit the museum before or after the talk.
