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 installed in Musee du quai Branly that year – a big one!

“The contemporary art scene is still searching for some acceptable means of distinguishing Aboriginal artists as sublime as Judy Watson from the propagandists and theory mongers trailing in her wake”
