Artist-in-residence: Gordon Syron
Meet contemporary Aboriginal artist Gordon Syron and see him refresh his 1999 painting Invasion III, the last in a trilogy focusing on Aboriginal perspectives of first contact and colonisation. Gordon Syron is known as the father of contemporary urban Aboriginal art. His works are politically motivated and come from a place of self-determination and cultural pride and legacy. Gordon has been painting since the early 1970s, and during that time he has created more than 150 paintings depicting the invasion and colonisation of Australia. Invasion is a three-part series that has previously been on display at the Museum of Sydney. Mon 9 July, 10am–2pm Thu 12 July, 10am–2pm Fri 13 July, 10am–2pm Visit our website for further information: https://sydneylivingmuseums.com.au/events/artist-residence-gordon-syron Image: Invasion III, Gordon Syron, 1999.
