Watson of course was the winner of both the 2006 Works on Papert Award at the NATSIAAs in Darwin and the Clemenger Contemporary Art Prize that year. Also installd in Musee du quai Branly that year - a big one!

As Nicolas Rothwell's excellent essay on indigenous art criticism in the most recent Australian Book Review says:

"The contemporary art scene is still searching for some acceptable means of dsitinguishing Aboriginal artists as sublime as Judy Watson from the propogandists and theory mongers trailing in her wake"

Enjoy the exhibition.
