Our department member, Professor Roger Benjamin, will be in Canberra later this month for a symposium on the art, life and times of Tom Roberts.



In a panel discussion with Dr Emma Kindred (Assistant Curator, Australian Art, NGA) and Alison Inglis (Associate Professor, Art History, University of Melbourne), Professor Benjamin will look at the European influences in Roberts’ art and the phenomenon of Australian artists travelling abroad in the nineteenth century and today.
