Jugama by Judy Watson


Thursday 20 October, 11.00am-12.30pm
Friday 21 October, 11.00am-12.30pm

Art in Place: Spine is part of a series of workshops for University of Sydney students to think and write about the campus artwork Jugama by Judy Watson.


The workshops will take place over two days, during which time participants will be invited to write responses to the work. The participants in the workshop will collectively produce a poster about the artwork, which will be printed and circulated in the student newspaper, Honi Soit. This is the second workshop in the series, with the first focused on D Harding's work Spine, which resulted in a poster lift-out in Honi Soit which you can view online here.


The workshops will be lead by:


Marika Duczynski

Curator, Indigenous Heritage, Chau Chak Wing Museum






Katrina Liberiou

Curator, Chau Chak Wing Museum






The workshops are open to all University of Sydney undergraduate students. Priority will be given to Indigenous students. The workshops will be of interest to those studying art, art history, or Indigenous art & culture.

About "Art in Place"


“Art in Place” is a collaboration between The Power Institute and Honi Soit.


This project aims to bring student attention to the important artworks by Indigenous artists on campus, to reflect on their mediation of place, and to provide a platform for students to write and publish their reflections.


Honi Soit is the weekly print and digital student newspaper of the University of Sydney. Established in 1929, Honi is made both by and for students, covering news, culture, analysis and more.
